The inaugural visit of the Bugatti Veyron*) at Prescott Hill, home of Bugatti Trust and the Bugatti Owner’s Club in Gotherington, Gloucestershire became a great success.
Within the Prescott Speed Hill Climb at the 26th and 27th of May, called “la vie en bleu” in honour of the Bugatti Veyron, hundreds of competent enthusiasts visited the short track around the hill where the Veyron attested his peerless qualities.
Driven by Pierre-Henry Raphanel the Veyron became faster and faster and finally – with 46,3 seconds – he broke the long standing record for Bugattis, set by Charles Dean in his Type 51. Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, the new president of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., who visited the “hill” the first day, accepted this with pleasure. On the second day of the event – with drifty, typical English rain – Pierre Henry even set up the absolute record of the Prescott Speed Hill Climb.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version).CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
