The Bugatti experience – Three Days At The Langham and Beyond


I was fortunate to stay at The Langham Hotel, in London for two nights. Just before stepping out to dinner at an Italian restaurant nearby, myself and a friend had a few few drinks in the hotel bar before finally heading off to the restaurant. Just as we emerged from the hotel, we were confronted with a Bugatti Veyron. For me it was an experience as the only times I have seen one was in magazines or on the TV. Anyway we quickly whipped out our mobile phones and started taking pictures of the car. Obviously we were not the only ones doing this, however, the doorman did not interrupt us as we were staying at the Hotel and he knew us. Other people were shooed off as I assume the doorman was only protecting the possibility of him getting a tip when the owner returned.

So below I have pictures I took with my Blackberry 9800 smartphone.
