    I'm glad they kept the toilet seat grill. So fetching.

    That thing looks just amazing. I'm sure that my dream is shared by a few....I would not necessarily like to own one, but boy would I like to drive it......very fast!

    These super cars, while the preserve of the super rich just stimulate something in my love for the pure joy in producing something that is over and above all else. I can't imagine what it must be like for the engineers that work on this stuff......an amazing experience to see hours of labor turned into a fire breathing monster that looks good enough to sit on a pedastal.

    Great article.

    Leave it to VW to sneak a little 'beetle' into that bad boy...
    ...and they thought we wouldn't notice the hood line: :D

    Well, it's about time.

    It was getting to the point where you couldn't turn around without tripping over a friggin' Veyron.

    Great article. I wish Bugatti would've gone with the 4 door they were initially talking about a few years back:

    I agree with Jason...it is a bit too much. The interior looks like it was lifted straight from Pagani.

    Yeah the front of the car isn't nice to look at.. looks great from the rear and side views.

    Nicely done. I read elsewhere that Mr. Piech may actually turn a buck on this run. Did you here that, as well?

    I'm a guitarist, I have gear to haul, so I'm holding out until they start producing the Bugatti Gearon.

    I dig the front. It says Bugatti, and that means awesome, and there is beauty in that.

    4,400 lbs. That says something right there.

    Pretty impressive, but the epitome of conspicuous consumption. :rolleyes:
