Probably the answer is "Larry Ellison, and he got bored".
I forgot to mention one of the weekend WINs that made me grin particularly hard: I saw not one but twoBugatti Veyrons in a car dealer showroom. One was red, the other black; both were used. But I'm guessing that even a used Veyron is not exactly cheap, yeah? Given the low production numbers, I'd expect them to hold value. (I declined to ask about price, though the dealer did ask Mr P if he were interested. Mr P has that look about him. Ha.) I did wonder about the stories behind the cars. Who bought them? How many miles did they drive before they decided that the top speed was something they'd never see? What are they driving now instead? Is it anti-climax?
I think James May was the perfect driver to take it up to its top speed. That review wanted the numbers and the geeky appreciation of amazing engineering that May brought to it.
