Another fun fact...tires need to be changed at 10,000 miles, wheels at 30,000. A tire and wheel change is $73,000, but heck...most of us make that in a week right?

Another fun fact. For all service work (except oil changes) a technician is flown to you from the factory.

One more fun fact. In a speed race, if the McLaren F1(the previous fastest street legal car) were allowed to reach 120 mph before the Bugatti started, the Bugatti would still be the first to reach 200 mph, according to the host of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson

Fun fact: I'd rather have an assortment of 10+ Ferraris, Lambos, Nobel, Ford GT40, Porsche GT, Bently GT, etc.......

Then that one ugly, over priced ****box.

LOL..... $hitbox? That car can't be compared to anything else! An amazing amount of technology is in that car. It is pricy......but not a $hitbox. I went to an event the other week and got to drive one of the two new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport (convertible) the factory brought. Holy cow!

You see that list of rediculous maintanance items, F that. It's a car, not a jet aircraft. I know it's incredible in it's own right, and I am into cars, but I still hold true to my statement. Give me $2M to spend on cars, and that won't be one of them.

The tires don't last long at all running WFO, I think I saw a while back like 17 miles at WFO. But the good news is that the car runs out of gas about 4 miles before the tires wear out!!! Nice engineering!
