Bugattis are some of the most beautifully designed cars both past and present.  I hope to have one someday :p

I think your list of cars you don't want is shorter than the list of ones you do

That thing is beautiful, but with 1001 HP, I wonder how long it would stay beautiful.

how much they go for nismo!!

All I know is that the Bugati Veyron (1001 hp) is having downforce problems so it's making it hard to reach 252mph (I think it can go 230 mph already). It was suppose to come out in 2003 with a price around $800,000-$1.2 million.

Dirn, this is another need, not want. LOL

Actually, if I remember correctly, it is not the fact that they have trouble reaching their top speed of 252 mph, but rather that they have realized that it is extremely unstable at that speed and have great concern for the customer's safety. In the end, they will either fix their downforce issue providing greater handling and stability at maximum speed or they will reduce the speed with a rev limiter to a "safer" speed of 230 mph. I for one would have to wonder if it is necessary for waiting to release the car for just 20 more mph?

if they changed the rims and painted it all one color it wouldnt look so bad


i would think downforce is key..also im thinking 1001 hp 250+ mph...it would probably lift off the ground and crash and burn.

I think I'd kill a man for that car. But I'm with you critical, I'd get it resprayed and put some nicer wheels on it.

Was just thinking about the wheels... Do they even make street tires capable of handling 250 mph? I thought the Z rated tires were only good for up to 170.
