Have you ever wondered what it is like to drive a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the fastest roadster in the world?
Well, you’re in luck because a company by the name of Global Racing Schools is offering a ‘Drive of a Lifetime’ package where you’ll get the chance to be fully acquainted with the 1200hp Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
Open to anyone from any country (Malaysia included), the package consists of a four-nights tour which includes accommodation and private tours of high-profile factories in Europe. More importantly, participants will have three days and roughly 700km with the car itself where they will be able to experience the full potential of the car.
This won’t just be a slow drive mind you because accompanying you will be four other amazing supercars – Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 488 GTB (available after August), and Mercedes-AMG GT S.
However, the tour requires ten drivers so if you’re going alone, you’d probably be consolidated with other groups who are interested to go on the tour as well. That is unless you can find nine other driver interested in which case, the company is flexible on the tour dates. Also, you'll have to source your own flight tickets to get to the starting point of the tour.
The itinerary of the tour is as follows:
Arriving by flight in Stuttgart, participants are ferried by a Mercedes-Benz S-Class limo to spend the night in the five-star Althoff Hotel am Schlossgarten.
In the morning, participants will be brought on a private guided tour to either the Porsche or Mercedes-Benz museum. They will then be brought to Baden Baden to be briefed on the car before undertaking a one-hour “warm up” 80km drive. They will then spend the night at the five-star Brenners Park Hotel.
This is where the excitement starts. A full day, 250km drive through the forest trails and mountain passes of the Black Forest, crossing the Rhine into Switzerland and on to the IWC watch factory, for a private guided tour. The drive then continues to Lake Constance, where participants will spend the night at the five-star Hotel Riva.
The next league of the tour sees a 300km drive back to Baden Baden which first follows a stretch of the de-restricted German Autobahn where you can really put the hammer down in the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, bringing it up to over 408 km/h. From there, it is a scenic route with a stopover for lunch at a three-star Michelin restaurant before spending the night back at Brenners Park Hotel
This is the saddest part of the tour as you bid farewell to the Veyron with a 100km drive around the Black Forest. After lunch, you will be transferred by limo back to Stuttgart and that marks the end of the tour.
The price for this amazing experience? 11,000 euros (RM42,728) per person. However, when you consider that almost everything is provided in the tour and you get the chance to drive five highly exotic supercars in Europe, some might argue that it is quite the bargain. Interested?
