So yea - there is such a thing as cheap rich people... but their definition of cheap still would make most people take notice!
Sounds like a pain in the ass.. I can guarantee you that most veyron owners aren't using even close to 60% of its power, just buy a Ferrari and call it a day..

Also the Veyron is not even the best looking car out right now or even that rare.. People just look for the most expensive car and buy it.

We're being extra careful on the engineering for these wheels but i'd expect to see something in around 8 weeks or so.

Great! Good-luck and can't wait to see the outcome.

BTW: What color is the Bugatti?

Cheap rich people?

You don't get rich by spending money on things you don't want to

If that was me, those wheels better be the best wheels I have ever seen.

But for the money i'd rather get a Ferarri, Porsche, M3/M5, and a Lambo in the garage.

Lol I'm sure the owner has all of those cars plus more in his garage.. A bugatti isn't something you trade your daily driver in for and is then your only car. It is a car you buy after you already have everything else.

Does ADV.1 machine their own wheels, or is it given to a company like Corr or Rennen who actually machine the wheels from aluminum alloy blocks?. If they don't how can they talk about quality control etc?

We use MHT's machines to build our wheels and we have our building at their warehouse where our employees are on site assembling, quality controlling, and shipping out our wheels.

Good luck with the build guys. Who said innovation is dead. No one got anywhere because they thought the current conditions were good enough or impossible to rise above. Can't wait to see the results.

It sure will be one hell of a marketing boast.

Veyron is nice, but it's no 335i.
