Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has recently introduced a unique driving experience for Veyron owners: Feeling the road. Under the watchful eye of official pilot, Pierre-Henri Raphanel, Bugatti customers have the opportunity to learn how to react in critical situations.
Over the course of a whole day and some 300 kilometres, Pierre-Henri explains the Veyron 16.4*) – which is supplied for the event by Bugatti – before giving one-to-one training and an introduction to racetrack driving. This exclusive event is held upon request and takes place at the “Anneau du Rhin” track, in Colmar, alongside one of France’s most beautiful wine routes.
The session will entail such dynamic driving exercises as full acceleration, emergency braking, change manoeuvres, and slalom – conducted at the training centre and under various tarmac conditions, also making use of the artificial rain system. The programme then switches to the smaller (1.1 km) of the two racetracks, where drivers can train in private, with exclusive use of the track. After a break, the final – and most exciting – session is a special high-speed drive on the larger track (3 km).
This unforgettable day is rounded off with a debriefing and the presentation of a certificate. Participants may also spend the evening dining with Pierre-Henri, when they will have the possibility to exchange their impressions of the day’s experience. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. can arrange accommodation in or around Strasbourg, as well as a visit to nearby Molsheim for a tour of the birthplace of the first and today’s Bugattis.
Feeling the road is offered on a strictly individual basis and Veyron owners wishing to arrange an appointment should contact us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
