That is not a very "kept-secret-till-date" motor.

Even-though Jeremy seemed Wow! when he heard about that engine, I vividly remember Jeremy mentioning about that engine on TG before the Phantom was launched, then later RR replaced the engine with the V12.

The Veyron is often called the Big-Bug, partly cos of its name, but mostly because it is also a bug-like VW

Bumped upon a nice link of celebrity cars today, already finished checking 62 pages

Almost 90% of celebrity cars are pimped and most look hot

From crazybiker46's post above, I came across Jon Olsson's Audi R8.

Can't believe that it's an Audi! Looks way more badass than a stock Lamborghini!

Specs
Weight: 1,360kg vs stock weight of 1,620kg thanks to carbon fiber body
Cylinders: 10V
Horses: 710 BHP vs stock 525 BHP
Torque: 720Nm vs stock 530 Nm
0-100kph: 3.1 sec on tarmac

This extreme modification comes with a four-year / 50,000-mile warranty

Ashton Kutcher drives a Fisker Karma in the latest season of Two And A Half Men. He is seen driving it on several occasions throughout the season. Could it be his own car?

Wow this is a super fantastic collection, doubt if any one can have something like this. Also noticed that he's quite a lot of rare cars & am sure with passage of time the cars in his garage are going to be much more in value than he would have bought.

My fav. in the list has to be the Bugatti EB110... its one of those cars that I loved since times immemorial.
