The New York International Auto Show is in full swing at the Jacob Javits centre on Manhattan’s West Side, and journalists have been treated to the debuts of more than a few remarkable vehicles.
But while most of the automakers have hired female models — AKA booth babes — to stand alongside their products, Bugatti took a different approach this year.
Accompanying the Veyron, the world’s fastest production car, is a security guard, whose job consists of keeping interested members of the press a few yards away from the multi-million dollar ride.
According to the guard, someone checking out the Veyron at last year’s show accidentally damaged it, costing the company quite a bit of cash. So for 2013 they’re not taking any chances — although rumour has it journalists at the show can get closer if they talk to the Bugatti media representative, and set up a time beforehand.
