We've always loved, and drooled over, the Bugatti Veyron. When our colleague Marty Padgett got three hours of drive time in the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, we were ... well, let's just say we found our professional jealousy piqued.
And not just anyone gets to fork over a million-plus for a Veyron either. It seems you have to have $200 million in the bank to buy one.

Take accused domestic abuser and baby rap star Chris Brown, for one. Or Simon Cowell, who to our horror is reportedly worth half a billion dollars or so.

According to our sources, the photos were taken in the courtyard of London's Dorchester Hotel. The car is said to be owned by the son of a sheik from the United Arab Emirates, given to him as a graduation gift. Nice personalized plates, too.
