Takes talent to make not only the fastest road car but the ugliest as well.

Although I'm not fussed on the orange, it's still a gorgeous looking car!

I wonder how it does on the school run (urban cycle)?

engine capable of 268mph to move two people around the West End at 10 mph? I must be becoming an old fart...

The makers of these things get so embroiled in the exercise.
The production and sales of these object can never recoup the costs.
Their practicality is nil
And yes - I am not a fan of TopGear either or the wafflings of the trio of twits that present it.

So there - I really am an old fart

The Colour Scheme is Striking

(Topgear: WOW!,a celeb test drives a car one second faster than anyone else,and Clarkson has a orgasm ) I must be an old fart as well.

Apparently, the Bugatti Veyron costs £5million to produce, while it is only sold for about £1million.

(Well according to Top Gear)

Yes, VW lose about €4m per car, but just as with F1, which is another huge money pit, the technology eventually trickles down to the mainstream where the real money is made.

No, your Ford Focus won't be capable of travelling at 268mph anytime soon, but the technology used in the huge turbo-chargers on the Veyron could be used to make cars travel faster whilst using less fuel...
