    Say what you want about its styling, but it is definitely not a terrible car.

    Is being ugly a requirement for qualifying as a supercar?

    Not ugly- just ridiculous looking.

    No but there are much mediocre car which are not very cheap like Mercedes S, BMW 7, Range Rover Sport(LR3 with body more similar to Range Rover, but ugly rendition), Mercedes CLS, Jaguar, Porsche Cayman(woman car, this is a Boxster with body more similar to 911), and many other McLaren F1 is one of most beautiful car ever made!

    i certainly agree, but you can't deny that there is an element of one-dimensionality. it was built to break the record; nothing more.

    Not at all. It is quite useable and comfortable, has a very luxurious interior, etc. It's not just about straight-line acceleration, it's the full package.

    Very luxurious interior if you upgrade to the Hermès edition!

    just when you come to terms with what a fucking ugly car the veyron is, they go and release this

    the veyron may be a technological marvel when it comes to point-to-point straight-line acceleration, but it is a pretty terrible car in all other respects. nothing more than a rocket on wheels

    bring back the mclaren f1



    I saw this at the Pebble Beach Concours last week... the blue color really is nice in person, but it really is just a topless Veyron, which is cool, but not exciting. Now that I'm back from my travels, I wonder if I should post photos I took from the Concours.

    Actually they Veyron handles incredibly well. Doesnt make sense to me because of the weight but some how Bugatti pulls it off!
