Straight up, I've never seen a Veyron in real-life. I know it probably does look amazing, but in pics I cant help but think it looks ugly.

Here's where Huckfeldt comes in...what a guy. Check these chops out. Anyone seen them before? Maybe they're years old but they are amazing. Imagine if the Veyron looked like that!

There are rumors of a Veyron Vert coming. Supposedly it's really going to happen.

I've seen three Veyrons. One was that limited edition Pur Sang (sp?) - no paint, just aluminum and CF.

While the Veyron does look good in person, I definitely disagree when people say it looks breathtaking in person. I think it's overhyped. I gave it one or two good looks, then moved on to all the other cars at the show. Cars like the CGT, SLR, and FXX are cars that are "breathtaking" in person.

Yeah they are going to be producing them, but the pics I posted are chops made by a guy Huckfeldt. The guys amazing at what he does, and it would be great to see the Veyron look like that.

Interesting. That doesnt say much for the Veyron's styling IMO, and I would tend to trust your opinion since we share a lot of same views on design

That's not a Veyron at all. That was the proposed design for a Bugatti aimed at the Boxster segment of the market.

HAHA. Isn't that the truth.

They really don't need to market it. The same people who bought the Veryon will buy this too. For the wife probably.
