heard there would be 500 examples of this over two + years.

Read the driving and specs on this and WOW

however, on another note: Notice the new AR @ $300k vs the MB new SLS AMG, gull-wing for $200k and thinking [since could by the Veyon] the MB is the much better deal.

gotta learn to proof my onw posts

should say "since could NOT BUY the Veyon...the MB vs the AR is the better deal"

Veyon is out of any of other supercar categories: It is in a category all its own.

I would not be impressed. I was in more awe with the cars at Cauley Ferrari than the Bugatti Veyron at Bentley of Troy. For $1,900,000 you should make my mouth drop to the floor and they sure have not done so. I stood less then 3 inches from the car and nothing. It just doesn't have any appeal whatsoever. The fact that it goes extraordinarily fast in a straight line doesn't mean much. If I wanted extreme speed in a line I would buy a ZR1 for $103k and some change, because it can also take turns....oh yea and it is a heck of a lot better looking....

Well now that I completely dumped on the Veyron I will sit back and hopefully not be torn apart by the Veyron lovers.

How much is that dog in the window?

The Bugatti for 2.1 million proves P.T Barnum's old adage....There's a sucker born every minute. In this case a "Very Rich Sucker"......Mark.

What kind of first post is that? Subtly promoting a web site?
