This is How to Ship a $3 Million Bugatti

One of the world's fastest and most expensive cars is also one of the most carefully shipped vehicles on the planet.  Wired ran this interesting story detailing the details involved in shipping a $3 million dollar Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse across the ocean to California.  As the article notes,
When you drop $3 million on a special-edition Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, you want everything to be perfect. That’s why, before it leaves the factory, Bugatti wraps the car more carefully than royal nurses swaddle the future King George. 
There's much more detail about the preparation that goes into both the shipping and the delivery end of the process.  Pretty amazing stuff; of course, we are talking about a car that costs three million dollars!
