Bugatti Vision GT Runs Out of Fuel + Fails to Load Into Truck

During the 2016 Pebble Beach Concors D'elegance, I saw the Bugatti Vision GT (Gran Turismo) having quite a hard time as the car had to leave the show. First of all, once they started the engine and moved it for a couple of meters, the car was already running out of fuel and someone at Bugatti had to come and fill it up quickly and then, it struggled quite a lot to put on the ground the 1500hp in order to get properly into the truck!

I guess he couldn't afford the fuel to run the car after paying for it!
