One-Off Oakley Design Veyron, Latest Custom Bugatti, Already Spotted in London

Those of you who wanted to know how London maintains its title of a world supercar capital will be thrilled to see the latest example of the British city's four-wheeled extravagance, the freshest custom Bugatti around.

We introduced Oakely Design's Veyron to you last week, when the British tuner offered us the finished version of a project that started back in fall 2015.

To put it shortly, this is one of the early Veyrons whose owner decided to go for a Super Sport upgrade approach. However, instead of turning to the factory for that, the man went down the aftermarket route.

And while Veyron owners keeping the hypercar fresh as the mother ship is preparing to introduce the Chiron might sound pleasing, this project is not without its drawbacks.

Chief among those downsides is the styling of the custom Veyron, since labeling this tuner ride as an opinion splitter is a mild approach.

As for the power increase, which saw the Veyron jumping from 1,001 to 1,200 PS, this was achieved through an ECU remap. Once again, not the sharpest way compared to the hardware changes introduced by the SS engine. You should also know this Veyron packs a custom exhaust that might just make it the loudest W16 around. But that doesn't exactly help with the issue mentioned above, does it?

To go with the London use of the Veyron, the Bugatti has lost its original Dubai plates for a set of British ones.

You'll get a clear view of that in the video. Speaking of which, you should skip to the 3:15 point if you're in a hurry. Still, the intro of the clip is not exactly something to go by. Not when it involves a kid talking supercars while tucked into the passenger seat of his father's Ultraviolet Blue 911 GT3 RS. You know, the casual way of growing up with cars.
