Melbourne's mystery Bugatti Veyron

Ultimate speed machine repeatedly spotted in Melbourne

Melbourne Bugatti Veyron

A Bugatti Veyron has called Melbourne home for some time now.

First spotted under cover on the back of a flat-bed truck just before Christmas last year, it then appeared in the showroom of Sydney exotic car dealer Classic Throttle Shop before being sold for an undisclosed sum.

Since then the car has been spotted in the wild on numerous occasions, shared by eagle-eyed Melbourne car enthusiasts on the Facebook page Melbourne Exotic Car Spotting.

Melbourrne -Bugatti -Veyron -frontThe confusing thing is that as all Veyrons were built in left-hand drive, it's illegal to drive one on the public road in Australia.

It appears the owner is happy to get around this by using trade plates, in which case the vehicle can be used for various purposes (checking repairs, preparation for registration etc.)

It's brilliant seeing one of these rare beasts on Aussie soil and we hope that its performance gets used as its maker intended as well as being exercised on Melbourne's freeways.
