    Fastest production car in the world....

    Just had to share this, something that was mailed to me. Ever heard of the Bugatti Veyron? It's a monster.

    Alleged to be the fastest production car in the world and coming in at a staggering US$1.4m this beast is packing a 16 cylinder power plant and punching out 1001hp! They're only going to make 40 of them and a deposit to get you on the one and a half year waiting list will set you back a cool US$250k. It's got a top speed of 254mph and drains a full tank of fuel in 12 minutes at that speed.

    It's against everything I believe in as regards the environment and being responsible about fuel and to own one would be nothing short of a disgusting display of wealth. However, watching it actually make that top speed for the first time is compelling viewing and you can see it here, turn the volume up! I feel I need to plant a tree as penance for watching it.

    An absolute monster! Somehow doesn't look like the usual supercar; Jaguar XJ220 or McLaren F1.
