An awesome follower sent me this picture with the caption “When Bruce Wayne is in town”...🦇 Pretty epic machine with highway pulling power that surprises me every time. God I love this thing. Haven’t been posting as much, hope you are healthy and well. God bless 🙏🏻🦇🦇
So the absolutely craziest thing happened to me..I was merging onto an intersection from the highway and right ahead of me is this half size commercial truck. Obviously I couldn’t see what was ahead of him being so low, but as soon as he turned off what do I suddenly see?? 3/4 of a ripped off tire sticking up out of the street!!! 🤦🏻♂️
Whenever I’m driving I always make sure I’m aware of my surroundings, especially in my SV. I immediately realized that I couldn’t go right and I definitely couldn’t go left...right behind me was a pickup truck....What could I do? I made sure I lined up absolutely dead center with the tire and I went for it......
Guys I drove over the freakin thing....in my SV......
My God the sounds I heard...so I drive right over the tire, I look in my rear view mirror and I see the truck driver flashing his lights at me, I see the tire fly up and go under his bumper.......
We approach the intersection and it’s a traffic light. The truck driver drives away, so there’s that....I check all the diagnostics systems, check the temperature, oil pressure...All good....I was on my way to meet Mrs Dark and the kids for a day out and that’s where I took this picture....The valet and I spent 15 minutes going through every inch of this machine. We crouched under the car, checked the engine, we looked at everything....Guys the car was flawless.....I couldn’t believe my eyes. By the grace of almighty God nothing happened. Now first and foremost I wasn’t driving fast, second, if you’ve ever looked under any modern supercar you’ll notice the entire undercarriage is a carbon fiber wonderland, both for aerodynamics and protection of the drivetrain. In that moment I remembered one of the reasons why I chose this beast in the first place. It’s not all about performance, there is a lot to consider when you drive these monsters. There’s the safety and engineering behind them and it’s why cars can get so damn expensive.... I’ve driven this machine thru a sandstorm. Look thru my feed and you’ll see the evidence of that. I’ve driven this car on three continents and she’s never ever flinched. I love this beast and I just wanted to share this story with you 🦇🏎
Imagine flying down the Pacific Coast Highway on your way to Nobu with that masterpiece V12 singing behind your ears. Ferrari just outdid themselves.....An open top legend is reborn. The Ferrari 812 GTS
What did it take to smash the 300mph barrier? Same all wheel drive system as stock, same transmission....New for this monster? A revised 1578bhp motor nicknamed “THOR”!!! A new rear wing to minimize drag with a removed air brake replaced with a fixed version recessed into the tail.....Speaking of the tail. The beast is extended by 25cm. The rear incorporates four cannon like shotgun exhausts and the ride height is laser controlled..... Bugatti has once again shattered the bar which they themselves have set. There is no replacement for displacement and there is no substitute for Bugatti.
Andy Wallace hit 304.77mph in the Bugatti Chiron on the morning of August 2nd.....let that sink in for a moment. The sheer velocity, and brute force required to keep this beast planted, stable and so very violently fast....
You’ll notice it’s not exactly stock but you’ll get more details when Winkelmann decides to release them. Anybody who knows Stephen will know this was coming when he took the helm of Bugatti. They introduced us to the original hypercar 14 years ago and now they have the first true Megacar.
Mrs Dark was always right, when I used to argue with her about other Hypercars she kept telling me to forget the noise and just get the best. Bugatti will forever be the very best. Congratulations to a very badass company that does things on their own terms, in their own way at their very own pace.
Every time I get out of this monster I turn around and take a good long hard look at her. All the work, sacrifice and daily struggles of my business life disappear because this machine is a culmination and reminder of what I got when I put in the time, kept my focus and didn’t give up........Then I turn around and keep walking onto the next adventure; praying God will guide me onto the right path. God bless you all and have a badass day. 🏎💨💨💨🦇🦇
Putting her up on the scales she measured in at 3172lbs (1438Kg) WET: Full tank of gas and all fresh fluids...and believe me, that 7.0L race block takes in ALOT of fluids....
That power to weight ratio is impressive, especially given the amount of TORQUE this monster makes....What a BEAST☠️☠️!!! Can’t wait to drive her again. What a feeling!!! 🙏🏻❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🏎💨💨💨💨
The smell of gasoline has always intoxicated me, since my earliest childhood memory. Not sure that’s a particularly healthy thing but it’s badass and I love it !!!! ☠️☠️☠️Midnight high octane gas fillups ⛽️ Just another reason a car guy has to get out and drive 🦇🦇🦇🦇 #الحمدلله
