Buying a new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport will set you back over $1.7 million. That's a whole lot of scratch, so what do you get in return? Well, a 1,000-horsepower quad-turbo sixteen-cylinder engine, to start off with. And all the bragging rights that go along with it. You get the most prestigious badge in the business. And you get two roofs.

The Grand Sport, you see, is not your typical convertible. Rather than incorporating some sort of cloth, glass or metal roof that folds down behind the seats at the push of a button, it has a sort of targa-style solid panel that can be installed or removed depending on weather conditions. But if you're out in the sun and the skies suddenly begin to darken, there's a second roof that can be put in place in case of an emergency.

The trouble is, much as Richard Hammond of Top Gear discovered with the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster, the makeshift umbrella assembly isn't quite so easy to install in a pinch. In fact – bearing in mind that the Veyron only has two seats – it took three guys in the video after the jump a few minutes to figure it out. Or then maybe they're just not the brightest of fellas. Either way, you can follow the jump to watch them try.

      A Veyron Grand Sport doesn't have 1000+HP, it has 987HP. The Super Sport has over 1000HP.

          no... it's 1001 PS, which is a little more than HP.. it's still 987 HP. and no again.. the SuperSport has 1200 PS, or just under 1200 HP.

      So many cars with Qatari plates in London... How is it legal?

        Why would it be illegal?

        Just as legal as driving in, say, the US with Mexican or Canadian plates. That is, completely legal. The car's registered in Qatar.

      I would have just stood by and laughed...and laughed...and laughed... All the wealth in the world can't hide you from your own embarrassment. And despite a BMW SUV in the back, I see no chicks. Are these fools gay?

        Actually, the video was to show how difficult it was to put up the umbrella top, not to embarrass these guys. By the way, nice generalization of BMW SUV drivers. Make yourself seem like a retard by doing so.

      Why is Ayhab The Ayrab putting on the roof for that car? shouldn't he have a Pakistani slave in chains do this treacherous work for him?

      Another example that just because you can afford the car doesn't mean you know **** about it or how to use it. which means that 1000hp will never actually come to fruition without the driver most likely ending up wrapped around a tree or in a lake...

      Looks easier to put on than the Boxster Speedster top.

      It's faster to duct tape a trash bag over the top to spare yourself the embarrassment. Or do it the Keanu Reeves' Speed style - Drive over 50mph and you won't get wet.

        They do tend to. I work close to where this was filmed. We recently saw a man kangerooing down the road in a Koenigsegg CCXR, obviously not having mastered the clutch. He stalled and couldn't re-start so summonsed a minion in the following S-class to take over. It was difficult to know whether to laugh or cry at the waste.

        That was probably the Hamman Bimmer behind him.

        the license plate suggest they are from Qatar, so they are probably related to the Qatar's royal family or something!
