Top Gear-Featured Veyron Spotted With a Difference

Do you guys remember the first time the Stig saw a camel? James May said the visored legend of the wheel was very excited, but Hamster also had a good time that particular time he was in Dubai, because he got to race the Bugatti Veyron against another hypercar that was 15 years older than it, the legendary McLaren F1.
Well, Marchettino has managed to catch up with the same exact thousand horsepower monster recently. We say exact, but we instantly spotted that the all read paint we saw on Top Gear that time has now been festooned with a bit of black.

But according to the reference Marchettino provided, this is indeed the same car, chassis number 45... out of 300. What’s more, it supposedly belongs to a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family. Wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that Hammond raced it on a closed public road against another car that's as rare as pink diamonds.
