Shotgun in the Veyron Vitesse
One of TG mag's finest adventures over the last 20 years: Africa in the mighty Bug'...

The road leading out of the town is the one we'll be using. We drive about 10 miles before pulling into a lay-by. Minutes later, we set off in the Veyron, building speed gradually in preparation for a full-bore acceleration run. The engine farts and roars under a brutal, midday sun. Monkeys scamper about at the roadside. The Veyron's tyres rumble. "This road," I say to Jens, "is it straight like this for, what, 10km?"
He smiles, as the wind eddies over the top of the screen. "Oh no. It's like this for another 60km..."
With that, we bury the throttle, the Veyron hits warp factor nine and commits GBH on the laws of physics. Again.
