In the years to come, this is a car that is more likely to become an automotive curiosity rather than a classic. And if my crystall ball is correct, Bugatti is unlikely to stay in VW's hands for long.

Though I do apologize if my original comments seemed extreme. Perhaps referring to it as a Roman bath house would have caused you less emotional distress?

Who is going to buy Bugatti?

It's almost as someone took a perfectly put together Audi / Bentley interior and simplified it while at the same time removing all the life from it.

I like the Veyron, A LOT, but the interior is definitely not one of its selling points.

I guess it was just the chrome trimming and gauges that had me awe-struck. Consequently I was slightly more impressed with the Astons interior when compared to the Ferrari's

Astons have the best interiors imo, they have almost perfected a sport/luxury car interior. I especially like the way the gauges are finished.

It was more the feel of the leather, and the feel of the switches / paddles. The 612 just struck me as better made / finished. But of course, at this point I am really nitpicking, because they are both amazing when compared to 99.9% of the other cars made annually by other companies.

Here is my idea of a great interior, from an Aston Martin.

Is that a suede covering over the gauges? It looks like the seats are the same material. That is neat.

I'd still rather leather and wood trim in my Aston, though

I would definitely agree :] except for me that applies to any of my cars.

for some reason I've just never ever liked the carbon fiber interiors at all. like, I wouldn't buy a Ferrari F430 until I could also afford to have the interior custom wooded-out.

They time trial a different car, sometimes several, every episode using the same driver on the same course typically under similar conditions. The Veyron really held its own.

It's worth checking out online as several websites have episodes streamed, you know, when you're not working on your dedicated track car using a E36 M3 chassis.

I didn't think TG got clearance to let the Stig take the Veyron around the track-- correct me if I'm wrong...

If I'm not mistaken (and I haven't finished watching season 9), after letting May take it to Germany they were talking about letting the Stig on the Veyron in the next or following eps. Didn't they?

Nope. The last ep of Season 9 will have you in stiches though.

Driving a car without a walnut fascia is unthinkable.

Haha...I seriously thought that somebody was going to pop a cap in one of them. It's fun and game until somebody gets popped.

I feel this way regarding sedana, SUVs and some luxury Gt's, but I'm not the biggest fan of wood in modern day sportscars.
