    Word in magazines and the like is that Bugatti has revised their top speed number for the horrendously ugly Veyron to 350kph, from 400 (216 vs 252 mph), citing that the car is horrendously unstable at such high speeds.

    Hmm, sucks for the people who ponied up the cash, as not only is it stupidly ugly, but the only claim to fame it had has vanished as well. The McLaren is dead? Long live the king!

    Yeah....they seem to really be struggling to put this car together. Just shows you don't necessarily need 1000 hp to be the best.

    Boy, has VW really trashed the heritage and prestige of the Bugatti name with this one (from a not-so-so life in the early '90's attempts at resurection. Actually the EB112 was a nice luxo-sedan). The best they can do is to give up and allow this to fade into obscurity...
