    "Bugatti plans to build 300 Veyrons over five years; the cars will be sold directly from the factory to customers but it will be possible to service them at Bentley dealerships."

    if they are losing 4.2mill per car, surely theyu'll go bankrupt

    Bugatti

    Did the Bugatti do a lap around the track?
    If it did what was the time?
    I bet under 1.15 :jawdrop:

    There's rumours circulating that the white Stig is in fact played by several drivers - I seem to remember Mansell and Damon Hill being amongst those in the suit, and a female driver has been in the past too.

    As for last night's Top Gear, I was really looking forward to it - I've been following the Bugatti for years, and their race was very cool. I was hoping that they'd throw it around their test track too, but maybe another time.

    this is for the 'tards who turned up late

    the Black stig was perry McCarthy

    the white stig is who ever they can get that week to drive(it vaires between ben collins, and a few other drivers) or who ever can drive the car they are using aka Frank Mountain drove his(and the only one in the UK) MC hammer, Heikki Kovalainen in the R24.

    Do you actually know how much VW make a year?!
    This "proof of concept" is just R&D.

    BTW what they didn't show was clarkson having a hissy fit at the Bugatti guys for not giving him the second key to rip open the "super" options.

    According to this month's Top Gear magazine, you're getting your own version soon. Though without our quality presenters.

    Heh, wouldn't you??? Compared to all the other races they've done, I think this one actually meant something to him - he'd just passed his pilot's license.
