Birdman: Everybody Can't Get a Bugatti Veyron
The vehicle in question is the red Bugatti Veyron ($2 million) that joined Birdman’s stables in mid-2010, offering the co-founder of Cash Money Records the thrill of having a quad-turbocharged W16 engine developing 1,001 horsepower and 1,250 Nm (922 lb.ft.) of torque, and a top speed of 252 mph (405 km/h) at your disposal.
However, the photo shoot had nothing to do with what most of you would expect from owning a supercar like that: a speeding ticket. In fact, it was all about what made Birdman go for a Veyron, which he says he drives anywhere.
Bryan "Birdman aka Baby" Williams seems not to be bothered by the idea that he is not the only rapper out there going for a Veyron - Jay Z, Flo Rida, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne also have one - but instead takes pride with the fact that “everybody can't get them. We were the first to have them.”
“Everybody should have them…this sh*t is hot. They hot, they hot! That's the hottest whip in the world. Nothing f*cks with a Bugatti! Nothing, man,” he is quoted as saying in the interview taken by DUB Magazine.
Wonder if Birdman managed to put it through its paces? “I've gone on the interstate and busted, maybe, 160 [mph] going to the Heat game. Besides that, I don't really play with speed. I ain't one of them that play in that world. I do like it 'cause it's fly and the fastest car in the world and it's expensive, but I don't like playing with too much speed,” he said.
