Better blow your nose bud. Well I suppose that depends on if someone puts a fat turbo in there. Probably not gonna happen with just a S/C.

Love the video but not all that impressed with the sound. How is it different from all the 1000+rwhp supras?

The thing about the Veyron that is so amazing is that it's frickin' fast...yet it is completely easy to drive. The components of the Veyron are also supposed to last 10+ years.

Not sure how well made the 9ff is...it does look interesting. But you gotta wonder...when a small company (that makes the 9ff) tries to outdo a bigger company like VW. The 9ff definately does not look as easy to drive.

I think about $40k should cover that and make it a 600whp 400wtq $110,000 beast... Or you could get a 335i when the turbo upgrades come around and save about $40k and have the same thing with more torque.

And, the Veyron has all the creature comforts too, like noise deadening (which the Porsche SEVERELY needed).

All that Porsche is is a pure race car, where the Veyron is the opposite. Is that Porsche even street legal?
