Veyron Owner Can't Park

I saw this picture of the day an I felt that it warranted some discussion. How funny would it be if this dude's car got towed? Or better yet, side swiped because it was parked out too far?

I can't imagine the damages trying to tow the car.
the Lexus RX in front of the Bugatti seems parked better, and considering SUVs are never well parked, that should say something about the Veyron...?

He's either bloody concerned about curb rash, or filthy wealthy and has a backup Veyron just in case.

Wait, Dubai plates in London. And it's '11'. I'll go for option B.

Well it's an overpriced Corrado, so in that aspect it isn't much better than some Lexus pseudo off roader...

Whoa, isn't that extremely harsh?

But for Ferrer, I'd wouldn't be surprised.

As long as it's a flatbed truck towing it, it should be alright, I think. If its front wheels gets picked up and the rear wheels are dragged, then the car is toast. So yes, it would be catastrophic damage to the 4WD system.

Maybe rich people in Dubai don't need to park their cars... and this one isn't used to it, especially in London...

WHY arent' the parking attendants around when you want to see under a Veyron.

In the big cities, they use full cranes with straps on each wheel to lift cars out and onto a flatbed. That wey they can get ANY car out even if others are parked either side !
Seen an Aston being lifted before. THe guys get pissied off at you when you keep trying to get underneath for a better look

If you can afford a Veyron, you can afford to slip the attendants some bills.

It's probably the first time the man has driven a car. He realized that the whole chauffeur thing doesn't work in a two-seater.
Because of that it's all gone wrong.

I don't think people who own these cars work hard enough to care. I've seen Ferrari's in Manhattan that just pull up and the people just get out and leave the car top down and all. It's crazy!
