    Holy. Hell.

    That is not a car. No way in the world is that just a car. That is an accomplishment.

    1.) It can go from 406 km/hr to 0 in 12 seconds.... faster than its acceleration.

    I had the chance to see it in person in Berlin last year...

    And it's a beauty!

    Must have been exciting to see something like that in the flesh so to speak. Did they have to Mop Up after you left the Showroom???

    Hi Lefty

    No need for a Hitch.

    The Trailer is simply sucked along in its wake.

    Awsome, finaly a car I can run from cops in

    Whats funny is, if you actualy got this car the fastest you could go would be 70 - 75 mph "legaly". On the highway you might get by doing 80 - 85 depending on where you live, and even thats pushing it. So sometimes it's hard for me to understand to pay so much money, have the capabilites, but you'll never use it. It's like being 80 and purchasing a condom....

    If you can afford the car you can afford to take it to a track. Hell you can probably afford to build a track for it. It probably is not certified to run on US roads anyway

    If you ran from the cops in it, I don't think it would be that hard to figure out which of the four Americans who own one you are. Then again, going along with the theme of the first paragraph, you can probably afford to make them "forget" what kind of car it was

    Hi Zerohero, wee, De Plano, YARDofSTUF, mountainman & Humboldt



    Zerohero
    There are "Track Days" as mentioned, wherein you can go as fast as you wish. There are Drag Strips galore also. The lucky few who will own one no doubt live in Europe where they may be able to use it at speed, legally on some Highways their.

    On the other hand, to simply own such a jewel is satisfaction enough for many, who appreciate such wonders of the World and can afford them.

    The Front is the Old Bugatti Horseshoe Grill from years past that they are honouring. Awesome performance no matter how you look at it though.

    Yep it wouldn't be hard to locate an owner i wouldn't think. Great Car!

    Does this mean they finally got it running right?

    Fast but ugly.
