Oh and then there is this that has beaten the Veyron and cost less as a production vehicle.

I'm sure something out there has beaten this by now but that video just made me drool all over the keyboard.

I don't think the Ultimate Aero is as much of a technical showcase as the Bugatti Veyron. That car is miles more comfortable, and more of a pleasure to drive (not that I would know ).

Yeah I agree that this car is definatley not built for comfort or anything. Almost like the Lotus they manufactured overseas without carpet or anything in them.

They're probably comparing the 2200hp car against the Veyron mostly because it'* GB versus Italy. No countryman would say the Veyron'* better, but your posts have been along the lines of what Italians would say. I'll just take both cars, and that'* it!

It'* a really tough decision, though. I wonder what it would be like if the guy were to have a Bonneville instead!

I prefer my bonneville over any high end expensive car any day because I don't need something that guzzles more gas then my beast does. The only exception would be having my 94 grand cherokee with the 318 in it back.

I still prefer the Ultimate Aero, it is American, so I like it more, and less people know about it

In all fairness, the Veyron is pretty much German.
