Bugatti Veyron

What do you think??? Kind of looks like the Subaru Concept B11S dont you think? But, you cant go wrong with a 1001-horsepower W16 quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter engine with all-wheel drive

"the Veyron can reach 180 mph in just 14 seconds!"

Can I have a test drive/ suicide run?

As of today, August 22nd, 2003, the revised US-Spec Horsepower Rating of the RX-8 is 238 HP for the Manual 6port RENESIS, and 197 HP for the 4port Automatic RENESIS. The performance numbers advertised ARE NOT CHANGING. They have done many tests, in house, with magazines, and outside third parties, and they are still observing RX-8's that will do 0-60 in 5.9-6.0 seconds and quarter mines in 14.5 (best observed 1/4 mile run at Pomona Raceway was 14.48 at 96.1 MPH)

Because of the descrepency in the HP numbers, Mazda is sending out letters to every new registered owner of the RX-8, any pre-sale customers that haven't received their RX-8 yet, telling them of the error in the advertised rating, and giving them two options:

1. Mazda will provide free scheduled servicing for the duration of the standard warranty plus a $500 debit card.

2. Mazda will make arrangements to buy back the car.



too bad I couldn't buy a bugatti and take it back for free cause the dyno showed less than 1000hp

The spoiler is FUNCTIONAL and would probably save your ass. And besides, it only comes up when you need it. The rest of the time it's flush with the body ala porsche.

Just because it's a functional wing, it's not ricey.

Heck, even the old pre-'02 Impreza (2 door RS) have funtional wings. I can't provide the source but a German magazine put the car in a wind a tunnel and concluded that it does prevent lift but not down force.

It probably needs a spoiler as aggressive as that for stability and lift issues. Don't try 240 mph without one!
