Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is it true that you can get a rebadged last year's model of the same car for $400,000 from cars direct.com?

Seriously, I rarely lust after cars, but that baby's worth it.

even paying $400,000 you would think they would have thought of a way to cool the engine better. If you read the article it states the old model had problems of overheating.

So yeah, I'd pay the $1.24 million for the Bugatti but I don't like carbon fiber that much.

speaking as a car guy, the Veyron is stupid.

and there was no last year's model. it's a car that has been coming "real soon now" for half a decade. it was the last millenium when i first read about this vaporware.

it's a wannabe Big Mac or XJ220.

Merckx MXM? $3200 us dollars, bare frame.

Trek probably wants more than that for a TTX frame+fork+bar combo... I'll guess $4500.

I've always believed this was the absolute no-compromise supercar.
Seats 3. Gets like 25mpg driving low in high gear.

I think the Ferrari Modena 360 is still the sexiest recent car design. That Bugatti is is a butt ugly beetle - if I want OCP points, I'd get a Mercedes McLaren SLR.
