Bugatti recently held an exclusive track day event at the Paul Ricard Circuit describing it is a unique experience for the company’s dearest friends.

Participants had a chance to drive different Veyron models, including the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car with 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque, enabling it to run from 0-62mph in just 2.6 seconds to a top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph).

Everyone on the track had a chance to get some tips from Bugatti’s official test driver Pierre-Henri Raphanel.

There were obviously many celebrities, including Belgian racing legend Jacky Ickx, a winner of eight Formula One grands prix and six 24 Hours of Le Mans races.
