The booted Bugatti - click above for a gallery of before-and-after images

To their credit, the police in Slovakia evidently make no exceptions for €1.1 million supercars. There are supposedly two Bugatti Veyrons registered in the European country, and this one is said to belong to Ladislav Basternak.

When Basternak;s Veyron was parked a little too long at the Hviezdoslavovo Square in Bratislava, the Slovak police slapped a boot on the Bug's oh-so-costly 12-spoke wheels. We're guessing that more than one ticket resulted in the boot, but who knows? Either way, that would make this scene a little worse than the ticketed Veyron in London, but not quite as bad as the Bugatti driver who ran out of gas in Las Vegas. Thanks for the tip, Shadow!

      Maybe with that horsepower he can pull a Homer Simpson type getaway. Are there any jackhammers on the area?

      Looks like Kollar's Kar has been Kollared!

      serves him right. Even though he owns a million dollar car he can't be above the law.

      Although he probably is an arrogant p.o.s who thinks he can get away with anything and everything, if he was spending his money with the local merchants, amidst this recession, I'd probably let him get away with a parking violation.

      Afterall, if there were to be a scratch on that rim it would result in $20,000 of his money going to Bugatti instead of being spread around to the local businesses.

      Dude shouldn't have left his wheels turned, it doesn't look like they could get a boot on if the wheels were pointed straight, but my understanding of boots is limited.

      Just a few years ago these guys were behind the Iron Curtain. What a change.

      Why would anyone put ugly license plate on the front bumper on a 1 000 000 car? I'd rather pay $100 fine every month than have it.

        Pretty sure if you have a million dollar car you should not care about breaking the law and incurring the penalty of a few hundred dollars each time you get caught.

        I wonder what the cock-eyed license plate does to the aerodynamics at 250+ mph?
        • 5 Years Ago
        What would be the alternative? Break the law? Have the car not roadworthy? I'm just asking...
        • 5 Years Ago
        The wagon behind it got a boot and ticket, too.

      So the guy got a Veyron and spent his evening in Bratislava of all places? How stupid is that? Vienna is like 50 miles away. And that licence plate? There are thousands different ways how to mount it on so it looks like it wasn't put there by a 3-year old using "My first screwdriver kit".

      Kitko, ever been to Bratislava ? ( or Vienna )
        • 5 Years Ago
        More importantly, do you really like Bratislava?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Let's just say that both Cumil and Paparazzi had something to stare at...
