A Bugatti Wish Fulfilled and Memories Made

An experience to last a lifetime and a permanent grin to prove it.

Park Place teamed up with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make 7-year-old Michael Hollis’ dream come true.

His dream…worth nearly $3 MILLION!

Watch Michael Take The Ride Of His Dreams!

The young boy, battling leukemia, is a fan of fast cars and auto-racing video games.

Naturally, he wanted to experience a Bugatti Veyron for himself.

Michael, along with his mom and dad flew in from San Antonio for the big surprise, arranged by Park Place Premier Collection, Make-A-Wish and Bugatti.

They pulled up for Michael’s big surprise in a white stretch-limo.


Michael had no idea what was in store for him till he saw his dream car…a black and blue Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse…with a Bugatti factory driver.



The driver wasn’t just any driver, it was Butch Leitzinger- a race car driver who won the famed Rolex 24 at Daytona three times.

Michael- stunned and excited, climbed into the Bugatti, taking it all in while Butch explained what each button does and how the super car, packing 1200 horsepower- taking it from 0-60 in under 3 seconds, works.

After a thorough overview and Michael’s Bugatti hat on, the duo was off for the ride of a lifetime.

Although the car tops out at 255 mph, Leitzinger didn’t go quite that fast.

Michael, taking it all in during the ride was all smiles, waved to cars as they passed.

After the ride, Michael and his family got a personal tour of the Park Place Premier Collection- checking out Rolls Royces, Bentleys and other awe-inspiring luxury vehicles.

Bugatti and Park Place didn’t let Michael leave empty handed. He received quite the swag bag full of goodies from Bugatti to ensure he’ll have plenty to remind him of his experience of a lifetime.
