2009 Luxury Preview
The winds of change will be blowing with gale force in March, when Bugatti launches the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport—a convertible supercar that speeds to 224 mph with its top down. This hair-raising, $2.2 million machine is one of several items featured in our annual preview of the coming year’s most promising products, designs, and destinations. In the following pages, we invite you to soar high above the clouds in new Boeing and Embraer private jets, feast at a $9.2 billion dining mecca in Las Vegas, speed down the track in what may be the world’s fastest production motorcycle, and don your finest tuxedo for a night of opera at Tokyo’s New National Theatre. All this—and much more—awaits in 2009.
