Bugatti Veyron Fails Smog Test, Twice
While Manny Khoshbin is well known for his collection of cars, he seems to have a soft spot for Bugattis. After recently adding another Veyron to its collection, Khoshbin now owns four vehicles from the French automaker. In fact, his latest video presents the trip to have his recently purchased 2006 Bugatti Veyron smog tested again.
For the uninitiated, Manny Khoshbin is a Californian real estate tycoon and car enthusiast. He used his real estate business to finance his addiction to the car. The man’s garage is filled with many of the biggest auto successes, including the McLaren Senna, the McLaren P1, the Bugatti Chiron, the Pagani Huayra and many more.
Despite this, on his way to the smog test center, Khoshbin talks about the cars he plans to add to his collection. The latest installment is a McLaren Speedtail customized by the Parisian luxury brand Hermès. While Khoshbin is one of the lucky ones capable of owning cars of this caliber, he likes to bring them out. While the Speedtail is already an incredible vehicle, Khoshbin has chosen to add its special touch to the interior and exterior of the McLaren.
To offer some perspective, Hermès has handbags that can cost more than $ 10,000 (£ 7,959). Inspired by the iconic luxury brand, Khosbin plans to add a touch of handbag to the interior of the car with dark brown leather and cream fabric. He also plans to have the car painted in the same blue as the Hermès logo.
New cars aside, after driving the Veyron for a while to try to improve its chances, the vehicle failed a second smog test. Khosbin’s diagnosis was that he was simply not driving the Veyron enough to bring the emissions to passable levels. It looks like he will have another chance after changing the vehicle’s 2006 original tires.
