The Bugatti Vision GT concept ran out of fuel at Pebble Beach

Follow Joel

Every August, Monterey, California becomes the mecca for car enthusiasts around the world for what is known as car week— the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and every car collector worth his or her salt was there with a vehicle or five plucked from their garage.

Not to be outdone, of course, Bugatti was there with Chirons, and the Vision Gran Turismo concept. But it was the Vision GT concept that maybe got the most attention—and not necessarily for the right reasons.

For those keeping track, Bugatti just sold the Vision GT concept along with the Chiron launch car to a Saudi fan. Of course, this didn't stop the automaker from bringing both of those vehicles to Monterey last week for everyone to gawk at.

A funny thing happened when the concept car was being moved to the transport truck: it ran out of fuel. You might think we are kidding, but we aren't. Maybe someone should have checked its fuel gauge.

As you'll see in the video, the concept is moving under its own power, and the next thing you know men are pouring fuel from a red jug into the car.

The rest of the video shows the painstaking process of loading the concept car into a trailer for transport. Of course, this isn't abnormal. Loading a hypercar onto a trailer is a complete and utter nightmare, as seen here with the Lamborghini Veneno.

In case you forgot, the Vision Gran Turismo concept was our preview from Bugatti of the Chiron. That's not a bad thing, but things could have gone differently. In fact, the Chiron could have looked like this.
