Now that the Bugatti Veyron has aged, we're happy to see owners keeping the hypercar under the spotlights by attending various velocity events. And the freshest example of the sort was delivered during a drag racing event held in California.

And while we don't have the trap speed results for the first race, the mph numbers are there for the second one.

Since we don't want to ruin the giggles delivered by the piece of footage documenting the battles, we won't drop any more details here. Nevertheless, we can mention the fact that the said trap speeds will bring quite a surprise.

Instead, we're dealing with the Sang Noir limited edition, which brings plenty of visual changes - the French automotive producer only brought 12 units of the thing to the world. For one thing, Bugatti quotes Vincent van Gogh when descirbing the color and material mix of the car: “It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly coloured than the day,
