One of best shows on the Tv and the manner in which they ride roughshod over the theory of Global Warming is tremendous. Long make it continue.

PS Why is there an OT at the beginning of your topic....know I'm probably making a fool of myself by even asking!!

Its true that a costumer will propably never be able to max the Veyron out even if he would like to do so.

The reason for its construction is a special one.

As Volkswagen bought Bugatti, its was in a pretty battered state. Many people already spoke of Bugatti's end.

Therefore it was necessary that the first car produced after Bugatti's "rebirth" had to be something special, a strong message towards Ferrari and Lamborghini.

What could had been a stronger message than building the fastest production car in the world that is able to leave even the fastest Ferrari behind ?

It reached cult-status even before the first prototype broke the speed record.

The Veyron says : Bugatti is back !

Thats what i call a message http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

It also shows what Volkswagen plans to do with Bugatti : Entering the italian dominated super sports car field and stay there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That Challenger 2 vs Range Rover was very good, trust Top Gear to maintain faith in the licence feehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also quite good for recruitment I should hazard a guess too.

I am just watching the Bugatti speed test...

The presenter.... But you can't just jump in a go. There are procedures to follow - and I like procedures.

Lucky that wasn't Clarkson. He would have jumped in and floored it - if his driving in the Artic was anthing to go by! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well he DID want to go bigger still..... Come to think of it, Clarkson worries me....



Wait a minute, wait a minute folks. I have found an even better one.

You'll have to watch them in order parts 1, 2a & 2b.

That is superb. Mind you, I do wonder how an old Skoda would do. The 80's ones were built like tanks as well... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Perhaps I ought to ask Clarkson - he'll probably enjoy having a go!

The first vid is impresive. I though only us Americans likes combining; guns, cars, and explosives. O who am I kidding every man likes that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

As for the killing a toyota bit I was rather unimpresed. The building was nice and theatrical but it had a very good chance of surviving on the top. Had they parked it next to the building it would have been a pancake.

Yeah, that is true about the building Acunnon, but come on - setting fire to it, drowing it and so on.

OK The caravan wouldn;t do much to it, but the wrecking ball? It should have at least knocked it over, but it still ran.

Mind you, I did expecially like the bit with their production shack.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
