Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

Η Bugatti μαζί με την Barrett-Jackson, ανακοίνωσαν τα σχέδια τους να δημοπρατήσουν μία ξεχωριστή, 4-ήμερη εμπειρία με τα έσοδα από την δημοπρασία να πηγαίνουν το Make-A-Wish Foundation της Arizona.

Η ξεχωριστή αυτή εμπειρία είναι μάλλον το “απόλυτο test drive”: Ο νικητής της δημοπρασίας θα οδηγήσει μία Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse 1.200 ίππων στο Paul Ricard Circuit στη Γαλλία. Αλλά ενώ αυτό από μόνο του θα ήταν αρκετό, έχει κι άλλο! Μαζί με το test drive, κερδίζει και ένα tour στο Atelier της εταιρίας και μία επίσκεψη στο αρχικό μέρος που ο Ettore Bugatti ίδρυσε την εταιρία. Άξιο αναφοράς είναι το γεγονός πως στο «βραβείο» συμπεριλαμβάνονται αεροπορικά εισιτήρια και κόστος διαμονής σε ξενοδοχείο για τον νικητή της δημοπρασίας και ένα ακόμα άτομο της επιλογής του.

Σύμφωνα με τον υπεύθυνο πωλήσεων και marketing της Bugatti, Dr Stefan Brungs:

Είμαστε πολύ χαρούμενοι που αποτελούμε μέρος αυτής τη φανταστικής πρωτοβουλίας σε συνεργασία με την Barrett-Jackson και το ίδρυμα Make-A-Wish […] Δεν υπάρχει τίποτα πιο ικανοποιητικό από το να φέρεις το χαμόγελο στο πρόσωπο ενός παιδιού.
