Illustration for article titled Dealership Gives Boy With Leukemia The Ride Of A Lifetime In A Bugatti

How can you say no to a little boy who wants to go for a ride in a cool car? As the father of a two year old who asks me if we can “Go zoom in the blue car?” I totally understand. You can’t say no. So when a seven year old with Leukemia wanted to take a ride in a Bugatti Veyron, a Texas exotic car dealership answered the call.

Michael was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2014. When he isn’t at the hospital receiving treatments he is driving his favorite cars in video games. The Make A Wish Foundation partnered with Park Place Premier Collection in Dallas, Texas to give this young gearhead an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world’s best exotic cars.


To top it all off, Butch Leitzinger, Bugatti’s factory pilot for the US showed up in a Grand Sport Vitesse to take Michael for a ride. We have grown a bit jaded when it comes to the 250+ MPH supercar, but that will change when you see the look on this boy’s face while he is cruising in his dream machine.
