Lil Uzi Vert’s (Symere Woods) multi-million dollar Bugatti Veyron has been at the center of attention lately due partly to a multi-colored wrap that makes a bold statement about the Philly rapper’s taste.
A video recently emerged on social media (see below) showing New York traffic cops issuing a ticket and clamping the wheels of the rapper’s Bugatti Veyron.

A bystander filmed the moment and ran a commentary as the officers clamped the wheels. The bystander noted that the officers were “scratching” the wheels in the process of securing the clamps.
Multiple videos later emerged on Instagram showing the Bugatti being transported on a flatbed.
Lil Uzi Vert took to Twitter the day after the incident to explain that the vehicle was being transported to the shop to have its rims fixed.

Lil Uzi Vert is being panned over the custom wrap for his Bugatti
Lil Uzi Vert has been receiving criticism on social media over the colorful custom wrap for his Bugatti Veyron. Many consider the multicolored wrap to be in poor taste.
A critic on the website Carscoops commented that the wrap looked like it was “designed by a 5-year old for Hot Wheels.”
Lil Uzi Vert’s Bugatti Veyron is indeed a riot of primary colors. The car’s iconic grille is wrapped in yellow, while the bumper is wrapped in blue chrome. The color contrast is them completed with a splash of red chrome across the hood.
The hood also bears the image of the anime character Spike Spiegel from the anime series Cowboy Bebop.
Although many think that the custom wrap is gaudy and tasteless, Lil Uzi Vert’s fans have been defending him, saying that the design was inspired by the rapper’s love for anime.
Lil Uzi Vert’s supporters point to his growing collection of luxury cars with custom designs supposedly inspired by his anime obsession.
