The article implied that they were easily removed post delivery.

Why don't they design the cars to suit the American laws from the beginning as then I'm sure they can be designed to flow, be in tune, with the rest of the car?

How many Bugatti Veyron's were sold to America? If it is their largest market then this is a bit of a balls up by the design department.

Some more info in this. Bugatti says the bumper attrocities are not to comply with federal regulations but for US insurance companies. I don't understand this at all. You're rich enough to afford a Bugatti your insurance company already has your jets, boats, houses, etc. they'll insure the car however you damn well please. Either way Bugatti KNOWS each owner will take them off immediately. They were placed on with 6 easily viewed and non painted bolts.

Probably because it wouldn't look as good if they used US-laws with their design department. I think the non-US verison of cars have always looked better than their US counterparts. Even small things can really mess up a design (i.e. US F40 and F50 front bumpers).

I wonder how long until we get the first official reviews. I also wonder if the US based mags will have to review the cars with the horrible bumper add ons attached.
