Disagree. Looks quite Chic.

If so, respect.
1+ Respect to anyone who compares a Octavia Mk1(1996 design family sedan car) to Veyron.

eh? Trash Can? Have our standards gone up that high that a Veyron is being called a trash can?

While I agree Change is constant and that anything and everything can be bettered in some way. Amit please list out the upgrades and changes you would like to see in the 'better model'

What's up with Bugatti? How many special editions?
Just b'coz they can't launch a better or equivalent model, they are coming up with special versions.

I can understand that everyone cannot like every car or model.But finding shortcomings in a product like a bugatti veyron really surprises me.Its a marvel. A showcase of technological brillance of people at bugatti. Producing power is no big deal.But producing useable pwer in a package that can be used by anyone is a rear feat.Like someone said earlier also , i would really like to know the shortcomings that people find in a veyron.

Better? Show me a car that can handle 1001bhp and do 400+kmph with as much dexterity and aplomb as the Veyron.This is the pinnacle of modern automotive engineering.Cars don't need to get any better/faster than this.Or else they'll start to fly...

Buddy, even I like the Veyron and deeply appreciate all the efforts put into it's making, but all I was trying to say is how many ltd./spl. editions?
Peace

Let Bugatti..oops VW polish the rough edges(if at all there are!) on the Veyron like this until it fades away into the annals of automotive nirvana!

I think comparing Veyron with other cars is like comparing NY Skyscraper with a slum.

Car which has 1000BHP and can clock 400KMPH! Simply amazing.

off topic: Did you guys watch the topgear video of Veyron clocking the 400KMPH in a german track and also Veyron test drive during night?

Ah-haa, please enlighten us on what that rough edges are. If you cannot think of one, subject closed.

OT- Personally this is my all time fav piece of automotive journalism.
