Bugatti Veyron on Route 66: the final day
It’s the final chapter of our photo-diary as the mighty GSV reaches the end of the road in Los Angeles
Posted: 20 Aug 2014
And so to the end of the road: Los Angeles’ Santa Monica Boulevard, on the very edge of the Pacific Ocean. After seven days, precisely 2,404 miles and very nearly 900 litres of unleaded, our big Veyron road trip has reached the finish line.
And what a trip: the biggest ever undertaken in a Veyron, and, we hope, a worthy way to send the fastest car in the world – not to mention the greatest of the last 20 years – out with a bang, before Bugatti closes the Veyron chapter of its history to embark on something new and possibly even faster.
Los Angeles was, after so many miles of empty desert and wild mountains, a fearsome shock to the system: so many cars, so many junctions, so very many hotpants. The Veyron didn’t care, soldiering on as it had since the very start. Could any other hypercar – hell, any other fast car – manage such a trip so entirely effortlessly?
To find out, you’ll need to pick up the full story in the Adventures issue of Top Gear magazine – out now in print and digitally – where you’ll be able to read exactly what happened on our grand 66 road trip.
But first, here’s our very last photo-diary update. Hope you enjoyed the ride…
