Bugatti cabrio on the way
1 August 2006

It must be hard being a mega-rich international playboy (or girl): you quite fancy a £750,000 Bugatti Veyron, but there's no convertible version. And what's the point in having the world's fastest production car if no one can see you driving it?

Thank heavens, then, for engineering firm Webasto, which VW has commissioned to make a removable glass Targa roof for the 252mph Veyron.

Problem is that you won't be able to stow the roof in the car, so there will be a temporary fabric cover that you can take with you. Oh yes, and because of the change in the Veyron's aerodynamics, the Targa will be restricted to a mere 220mph.

Prices have yet to be announced, but we suspect if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
