Oil Baron Shows Off Bugatti Pegaso Edition

Written by tonks on August 6, 2007

Bugatti Veyron Pegaso EditionSome people have the money that rates them in the category of filthy rich. Most of those people love to use that money to purchase the things that they love the most. And that is where the Bugatti Veyron Pegaso Edition comes into play.

Here’s how a Russian oil baron did it. The man, who happens to actually live in Dubai’s Burj Al Arab seven-star hotel, got himself a Bugatti Veyron and then decided it was necessary to spend a little bit more money with some pimper of autos who’s recycling the name of an old Spanish coachbuilder that worked with Alfa Romeo and Ferrari during the 1950′s to boost the output on the machine by an extra 200 horses. That brings the final number to 1200 HP, which may make the top speed well over the 250 MPH+ mark it’s already at.

Zeyad is one of the few photographers who has had a chance to get a closer look at this one of a kind vehicle. Here is what he had to say:

 ”He’s a russian guy who lives in burj al arab. he hangs out with/works with sheikhs as far as i know. his collection of cars are the following (correct me if im wrong – and im sure there are some i havent mentioned): red on white pegaso edition bugatti veyron (plate C 1), white mclaren mercedes slr special edition (plate F 12), yellow pagani zonda F (plate F 13), white maybach 62, black benz G55, red ferrari f430, white lambo murcielago, a 760, a hummer H2 and probly loads more…

and with regard to the thing about license plates…having a lower number does not necessarily make you “closer to sheikh mohammed” it’s a bit more complicated than that. you can buy 2 digit plates…but not single digit plates. those all belong to sheikhs. the owner of this veyron, however, is an exception…he apparently offered 55 million dirhams for the plates C 1 – 12 to all the emirates, and the only emirate which accepted the offer was fujairah. hence the plate fujairah, C 1. and he is not a sheikh…he is a wealthy russian man who lives in burj al arab (the 7 star hotel) and has – in my opinion – the best car collection on earth…”

I think it is safe to say that we are all jealous, but appreciate the vehicle that has been created for everyone to see. This is truly a supercar that we will remember…till the next one comes around.
