I'm with you RC, I don't see or get the appeal, at all
fugly *** cars
no matter how fast or powerful
even IF I had the extra disposable cash to blow on that ****
Makes a 61 Plymouth look pretty .......And I'm sure it'll sell for more.
Thanks for the enlightenment! Holy cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I was watching a YT video with an owner of a Chyron. He was going through the costs of scheduled maintenance. The wheels, tires and other major components have a "use-by" date, of sorts. An oil change is $15K, as there are SEVEN drain plugs, and the filter can only be removed by lifting the engine. There are eight radiators. Eight!
Even if you leave the car sitting in your air-conditioned parlor and just LOOK at it, the annual service is $125K. I believe the insurance on the car was over $140K annually.
My head can't wrap around that at all,
Sorry, I must defer from what appears to be the groups' consensus on the Bugatti's.
Of course, I'll never live in a world where I can afford such a car, but I am fascinated
by the technology - and the sheer hutzpah - the team that makes those cars represents.
We're talking nothing less than a ground-based land rocket here - the engine itself is
a marvel of technology (with a demonic sound to go with it).
Honestly, it sort of reminds me of the race car no human could handle on the old 60's
Speed Racer cartoons - those cars have that sort of mystique to me.
I'm quite comfortable to find such creations fascinating, all the while knowing that ain't
my world and never will be - but I'd about kill to drive one, just once.
Talk about a bucket list item!
(BTW, the one featured in this thread is the "maximum handling" version, with top speed
specifically limited electronically to suit - as if 217mph isn't enough for anyone).
Much of it is form following necessity/function, but yeah - if they weren't so "collared" into integratingYes, I agree that the technology is amazing, but the car is still ugly as sin.
That’s why you will notice a lot of these multi million $ cars have Montana tags. No sales tax on cars. All you need is a PO box.Where I live we pay 7% sales tax to license cars from there purchase price..so it was cost $266,000 to put license plates on that toaster.
