The Bugatti Veyron was one of the all-time greatest supercars, and I'll never forget when it came out back in 2005. It was, at the time, one of the craziest vehicles in existence, and it still is -- and it was such a sensation that everyone seemed to know the Veyron facts: how fast it could go, how fast it would run out of fuel at top speed, how much it cost.

Unfortunately, the Veyron debuted only a few years before the economic recession, which harmed its sales. Seemingly to make up for this, Bugatti created an enormous amount of special editions to help bolster sales near the end of the run, similar to how basically any automaker creates special editions to help boost the sales of an older vehicle -- from Honda to Maserati.

This is one of those special editions, and it might just be the weirdest. Bugatti made so many special editions back then, many of which were one-of-one, that it's hard to find information about specific cars -- but I'll call this the "Ladybug" edition (except it's not really a ladybug). It has the same red and black color scheme, sure, but it has a series of bizarre lines on every contour, like the kind of strange lines a child would draw on a vehicle at a young age. It almost looks like the red paint is reflecting some sort of black light, or it's wet, or it's a giant, $1 million red and black zebra.

Regardless of what, exactly, it is, this Bugatti is certainly cool, despite the odd color scheme. Most importantly, the owner certainly seems to like it, as he was able to get the "HELLBUG" vanity license plate in California -- perhaps a nod to the car's manufacturer ("Bug"atti) and the slight resemblance to a ladybug.
