Really??? The Bugatti Veyron??? REALLY??? I am not convinced... I'm sure it is a very nice car but to be honest it could've been better for the amount of coin they spent on it.

Before you go off your nut just listen to my argument; It has an 8 Litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine yet it doesnt even produce 1000hp. What is that about - i know of a company that has been known to produce figures over 1000hp from a 2.6 Litre twin-turbo'd inline 6. So it makes you wonder why they need such an engine to get their results.

Sure i know people are going to say its not all about power and all that... which is true - it's not. But if its not about power then the Veyron is definately about its top speed - 400kph plus - however if anyone else felt the urge to challenge this im sure they could - but the car is so unstable at that speed and it takes so long to get there that other manufacturers don't see the point in making such a vehicle.

Aside from that there are other area of concern... shall i start with the 10 radiators...

* 3 radiators for the engine cooling system.
* 1 heat exchanger for the air-to-liquid intercoolers.
* 2 for the air conditioning system.
* 1 transmission oil radiator.
* 1 differential oil radiator.
* 1 engine oil radiator.
* 1 hydraulic oil radiator for the spoiler

Once again... sillyness The only reason why i would want this car is purely to say "can you believe a company actually made this car" oh and of course "I have enough money to buy a Veyron"

And then there is the fact that it doesnt even look that nice... sure it's not ugly... but at the same time is isnt that attractive!

Anyways, thats my rant over - sorry if i killed you dream - i just dont understand why so many people think it is the best thing since sliced bread! But hey - fell free to give me your thoughts or crush a car i would like to own - each to their own and all that!

Personally i would prefer an Enzo or a Maserati MC12, maybe even a Zonda or something similar. Anyways... my rant is over...


Later

Did you see the pics I posted of Vanquish in the ramdom pics the other day?

I'm not a fan of super cars, but if I did have a heap of cash sitting in the bank I would probably buy a Lambo Murcielago just for the porno factor

Yup! Straight line these things are quick. Real easy to get 4.7 out of too, and will leave stock evos behind on the traffic light grand prix, but show them a corner, and you wont see the evo for dust!
