Not quite as fast as a Bugatti Veyron. But not quite as ugly either.
All of them pre-sold.
Thats a fancy tractor.
Pretty expensive, but it COULD end up being cheaper than a Chevy Volt.
Bottom that baby out on a driveway and fixing it will probably cost a quarter mil.

And here I figured I was the only one that thought the Bugatti looked like it was designed by a kid with a #2 Laddie pencil.
It seems like about half of these exotics wind up in collections, and the other half wrecked at high speed.
I don't think I'd like to have a car that looks like it's saying "Oh 5h1+!" all the time.
Tell me how that works with a production run of 3... :)
Great another car you can’t drive. This will really get the OWS crowd going.
"...and the secret name is.........."
What does an oil-change cost on this thing?
Years ago, a buddy of mine had a friend who bought a Countach in LA, got in it and drove to Palm Springs. Rented a hotel and showered as the heat from the motor at his back left him in a puddle of sweat.
Walked out to the car and saw a puddle of oil flowing out. Called the dealer and asked WTF?
Dealer read him the riot act for actually driving the car that distance. Then refused to cover the fee for towing it back to LA.
Made me want to run out and buy two....
I can’t imagine what a common $100 repair like replacing the MAF sensor would cost.
Those Ghinis are fast!
Spend $80-ish K on a Shelby Mustang GT500 and you have pretty much the same thing.
I saw an article on the Bugatti a few years ago that said its tires are only good for 6000 miles. They’re hand-made, and go for $18K per matched set.
That was then, this is now. A quick Google check reveals that a set of four tires for the 2013 Bugatti goes for $42K. I don’t know if the milage rating has been improved.
Yeah the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport tops out at 267 and 1200 HP...
Dude in NYC, LA, and SF, the gardener drives one of those LOL
I don't care, I want it. Or both. The important thing is to enjoy your wheels.
I’m a Koenigsegg Gal myself. Top speed of the 2013 Agera R is a nice 273 mph. Mr Peel is a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport fan. Top speed about 288. Hennessey Venom GT goes like a rocket, and its a bargain at under $2 million. I certainly wouldn’t take up precious garage space with that Lambo 3.9 Mil and a mere 220 mph. Ha!
A couple years ago I ran into a small traffic jam at a backroads intersection in the Philly suburbs. When I got to the intersection I saw what was casuing the jam: there was this beautiful new-looking Lamborghini with its flashers on and the hood up. Next to the car, on the sidewalk, was a 60-ish looking fellow dressed like a Rockefeller, and he was slowly pacing back and forth obviously waiting for triple A to show up. That had to be embarrassing as hell. I chuckled.
My Father bought an Oldsmobile Delta 88 in 1965. It had a 425 and positraction. If I remember right it was 370 HP.
It was powerful but nothing like those fantastic sports cars. On the other hand, it lasted through Daddy, my older Brother then me. I finally sold it with over 200,000 miles on it.
Except for the water pump (a very inexpensive repair) and the starter, it never had any real repairs. I did have to replace the AC’s seal. After I took the unit off the car, I had a mechanic pull the seal as he had the tool which you had to use to pull it. It took him around 10 seconds to pull it and he charged me a dollar.
The real good part is it would cruise comfortably at 80mph on the interstate. It was just loafing along while I was driving in air conditioned comfort.
When I floored it, it roared like a lion and pushed you back in the seat.
What a car it was. I would give anything to have it back brand new.
I’m going to have trouble getting in and out of that beauty. Lucky I’ve got the Navigator for long trips.
What I remember from the early days of the Veyron was Top Gear’s feature on the car. Clarkson mentioned that the car carries only enough fuel to run at top speed for twelve minutes, but that’s okay because the tires would fly apart after fifteen minutes at top speed.
As thrilling as the idea of a car that tops out at well over 200mph sounds, I have a hunch I’d still have more fun driving my humble Miata. Its limits may not be anywhere near as high, but I can get much closer to them before I draw any unwanted attention.
Does it have cup holders? I hate spilling my coffee at 200mph.
How hard is it to strap a baby seat in it?
Ive seen better Hot Wheels than that gruesome thing.
I want a $2000 POS Jeep Wrangler.
Favorite of urologists?
Does the back door flip up or open to the side? That’s important when I’m loading those 50 pound sacks of fertilizer in it.
By all accounts, the LM002 was fearsome 4WD with unmatched capabilities 20 years ago. I'm sure some of the current SuperDuties, Rams, and other current 4WD brutes can probably match or exceed the 20-year-old technology of the LM002 but when its all said and done, there just Fords, Dodges, etc. and this is a Lamborghini.
I tell you, I’m not going to pay over $13,000 unless it has those LED running lights up front and turn signal mirrors.
“there” should be “they’re”.
That`s fugly. This is sexy:
1968 440 CID/375 bhp Dodge Charger
Shelby GT500’s go for around $60k.
Body design by Punk Rocker. Overdone. Damned ugly car.
Looks like the results of a consensus of overreaching European gay hair stylists with a jar of Butchwax.
Priced a 2013 all tricked-out - exceeding $80k. Drove one too. That was fun.
A buddy of mine picked up a Boss 302 Laguna Seca last year. I think he coughed up $76K for it.
I agree; give me the chassis and drivetrain, though.
I prefer the understated SSC Ultimate Aero, based down the street from me. Never have driven or even sat in one — way above my pay grade.
Although just something else to go wrong, I enjoyed the launch control on the Shelby. Might save a few tires and clutches. That thing is scary-quick.
Is it me, or does anyone else detect just a hint (a small one), of the Mach 5 in that design?
Where do you put your 4 wheeler and the deer?
Well, OK, but I am the original owner of a 1969 426 Hemi Charger 500. Less than 20K miles, numbers matching concours winner.
Hemi Orange, only option was Auto, not even a radio. Makes it's own music.
Ran for awhile as mild NHRA SS/EA...too expensive to keep up with the sponsored cars, so back to stock (except for the Ramchargers blueprint).
