Veyron in the rain. Crystal Cove, California
Sure, "there won't be anyone there, since it a rainy day" Thats what I thought, so I stay home, and skip the Saturday morning ritual, and look what show shows up. In the rain, no less.
There are some neat things about that car. However, the word "ugly" is an understatement of it's exterior description...
Probably one of the first 5 in the US though.

I don't particularly like its looks too much either, but it is interesting, technically. Gordon Murray (F1 McClaren designer) did a great write up all about the technical issues of the Veyron in a recent Motor Trend. If you can find it, its a great read.

Too bad it doesn't look as good as it performs.
The guy shooting the video sure got enough of the tail pipe.
Then I realized he was going for the shot done over and over in "Purple Rain", Prince's movie. Every shot in that movie had a tight tail pipe shot then the vehicle leaving quickly.
I'm surprised how small it is. I've seen some very nice photos of that car, so I won't be sitting with you school girls until I see it in person.
PS It's the fastest prodution car in the world!
I had the pleasure to take a seat in one and the interior is out of this world, wow ! The one I was in however was creamy/polished steel. I think the best made interior I've witnessed. So, what a difference the colorchoice makes//I'll post some pictures when I recover the files somewhere
The outside look is discussable. To say the least..
Leatherwork in GT
I just heard that the same company that makes the interior leather work for the Veyron, also does the GT .. We are in good company then ! I guess you won't find neater stitching than we have. The stitching on the Daytona seats of my last F360 Spyder I had to officially complain about, was not perfect as one would expect. For comparison.
Haven't seen any flaws in the GT interior leather work, have you !? I am not talking about layout, but craftsmanship We should be second to none...
But believe me the Veyron if chosen with taste is very pretty inside..If it's cartier red with green patches of course it's hgly, but you can't prevent an owner from having no style. You have that, or not.. But don't blame the car company, in that case ! I still will post the pics, but my comera has US plug on the charger and I'm still in europe, damn, where is the adapter.. ..
The masses wern't able to get close enough at the LA show to see the quality, however the silver and metalic blue leather reached over the ropes and grabbed you. I am very glad to hear that the same company did both and also glad that Ford chose black.
I could be happy with every color the GT comes and even live with the over sized Mac sub but that colored interior would have been a deal breaker.
