The vehicle could be stock as long as the parachutes can be street legal.
The main regulations are crash safety although folded parachutes are soft (at least softer than sheet metal) thus crash safety might be actually improved.

As for them not deploying in public roads there are no regulations about it. As long as they are pretty safe as not to deploy without the driver wanting to do so they would be approved.
A recetrack-only lock would be enough legally. The Veyron has a key to prevent it from reaching top speed.
They would only blame the driver from deploying them with the intention to cause harm.
