Just goes to show that there is no substitution for cubic inches, plus a boat load of money to make it work. But the Veyron is the most ugliest Bugatti ever made.
If you want beauty without all that impractical HP then pick something out of this collection.

I'd give my left **t to have any one of these cars !

In the past week and a half while out and about I've either driven past or parked near a McLaren MP4-12C (my favourite), 3 Ferrari's , a Lamborghini and a Shelby Roadster (cool).

Porches, Vettes, 370's,SLK Roadsters, GT-R's, R8's are everywhere in my area, but whenever you see one of the super car's they just stand out so far and beyond everthing else.

A couple of years back after driving beside a Lamborghini and coming to a stop at a red light I made the owner laugh because I cupped my hand to my ear, closed my eyes and smiled. The sounds of these engines are equal to that of Mozart. Pure art.

Dave - Then you would have to give your right **t to have it fix if anything goes wrong with that car!

I would take the McLaren over all of them. I think it is best combination of looks performance and comfort.

Pshoooo and he points down the track. Too funny.
Great video. Did you notice the smirk on the face of the driver I the Veyron. He knew he was going to win and was just loving life being able to drive that car the way it was meant.

I was out on the interstate in the Sky with the top down when I saw/heard a Lamborghini coming up from behind. He was motoring, so I started to speed up. I managed to hang right on his fender from 70MPH up past 100MPH. I usually drive within reasonable confines of the law, but I could not help myself...being able to hear that engine first hand at those speeds was amazing!

Pssh!!

Yeah, since a Lambo was a little out of my fiscal range, I got the Sky instead...with the chrome wheels!!
In all seriousness, that McLaren is a pretty fine car!!
