Bugatti Veyron: A Quest For PerfectionWed, 30 Nov 2011
It's easy to run out of superlatives when describing the Bugatti Veyron. Eclipsing every road car before it in terms of power, speed and price, it has been the benchmark supercar for almost a decade.
‘A Quest for Perfection – The Story of the Greatest Car in the World' by Martin Roach is a new book written in light of this redefinition of the supercar paradigm.
Tracking the car, from its conception, through to its record-breaking top-speed runs, Roach ultimately drives the million-dollar car. Written with the support of Bugatti and including exclusive interviews with designers, engineers, owners and automotive company heads, the book is billed as a ‘Part history, part personal obsession, part travelogue and part humorous quest'.
Detailing the new-age 'celebrity', the book features photographs, sketches and accounts from those involved in the creation of the 253mph hyper-car.
Roach's study of the ultimate car is on sale now.
