San Antonio boy's video game
dreams come true.
Michael Hollis loves racing fast cars in video games. But today he’s in a much more important race to beat leukemia. When Park Place heard he wanted to experience a real supercar we decided make Michael’s dream come true.
In a partnership with Park Place Premier Collection, Make-A-Wish and Bugatti, we flew Michael and his family from San Antonio to Dallas for the big surprise. Waiting for Michael as he pulled up in a stretch-limo was his dream car, a black and blue Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
But that wasn’t all. In the driver’s seat was none other than Bugatti factory driver Butch Leitzinger, a racecar driver who won the famed Rolex 24 at Daytona three times. A wide-eyed Michael climbed in and listened intently as Butch showed him all the features of this $3 Million exotic.
Then, it was off for a spin around town. The growl from the car’s 1,200 horsepower engine had Michael smiling from ear-to-ear. A Bugatti can make you feel a lot of things. On this day, it made Michael Hollis feel like a kid again.
