Here we go


Perhaps the single most pornographic video I have ever linked at the Flea. Ladies and gentlemen, Top Gear presents the Bugatti Veyron at top speed. Turn up your speakers.

Here we go.

On another Top Gear episode (broadcast on 4 February 2007) James May tested the car's top speed of 253 mph at Ehra-Lessien in Germany, which has a straight piece of track of 5.5 miles long, suitable for the test. Upon reaching the top speed of 407 km/h (253 mph), James May mentioned that he was "covering one football pitch every second" . In the after-comments section he said that the whole experience was rather disorienting, as he thought he had stopped and was ready to open the door when he looked at the speedometer and it was still at 70 mph.

Everton's Tim Cahill owns one. He, like, lets his girlfriend drive it!!!

After Clarkson raced the Cessna across Europe, he said ""It's quite a hollow victory really, because I've got to go for the rest of my life knowing that I'll never own that car. I'll never experience that power again."

Fun weekend? Rent Bugatti, crash it.

Yeah that is a cool car. Watching May take it to speed was pretty damn funny.
