Grand Sport debut...

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport debuted yesterday in Monterrey. Though the Sang Noir is still my favorite [i recently saw one in person and couldn't pull myself away from it], this easily would be my second favorite. It's stunning. When you take the hard roof off, the speed is automatically limited to 80 mph. Other wise, it will top out at 224 mph with the roof on.

Oh, what happens if it starts to rain and the roof is at home? It has a little canvas roof that pops out like and "umbrella." Cost? $2.05 Millions. Remember though, every single piece of the car is hand-made. Read the entire story over at Autoblog.com.

most fun driving i've ever done...

original cost: $4,037.00.

price of one recently sold: $79,995.00.

that's for a 45 year old car! the 2005 Infiniti FX35 that i'm currently driving barely cost half as much!
