2. the m3 is an excellent DD / track car. I bought it to track it too .. and I DD it. It does both fairly well. are there other cars that do it better .. sure... but the m3 does too...

It is actually quite funny how there are forum members out here who get all mad and defensive so damn quickly... are they the ones who are super insecure?

Beautiful and ugly are opinions. In my opinion the Veyron is neither beautiful nor ugly, but it looks as if it could kick everybody's ass - which I suppose was purposeful on the part of the stylists.

Per your quote above (and per Canadian Stig), I believe that anyone who owns a current M3 and is down on the Veyron because you can't use its full potential on public roads needs to look in the mirror.

Ever hear of the word "introspection"?

It's a car to own because right now it's the pinnacle of automotive engineering
Just like If you are into race cars, you'd want to own a formula 1 car
I'd love to own one, heck I'd love to drive one
But I don't think driving it is more likely than owning it

There are a few cars like this
The McLaren F1 etc
There are certain cars that appeal to the real car lover
They might not be good to go get groceries in
But then again
That's not their intended purpose
It's not a "jack of all trades" type car
But is certainly the master of one

Now, back to the OP, good find, that is a lot of power and a very fast car. I can't wait for Jeremy to test this car on Top Gear!

I find it incredible that any true car enthusiast wouldnt appreciate the engineering that goes into a car like this.

Thanks for getting the thread back on track..

You would be best advised to have a net worth of at least $60 Million in order to "afford" one. You'll need to ask for quite a raise once you find that job.
