Waking the beast

Waking the beast

Want to know what my biggest pet peeve is?

It’s when, on Sunday mornings, I have to decide between bringing my kids or my Bugatti Veyron to church.  Thank God they are coming out with a 4 door version – the Bugatti 16 C Galibier.

It is said that the Galibier will house the same 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 powerplant as the Veyron, but will be front-mounted and is rumored to run on Ethanol.

The Galibier’s body has a two-tone color scheme made of aluminum and a dark blue carbon fiber weave that “turns slightly translucent when illuminated” (see the popsci.com article for more).

So hopefully I can trade in the Veyron when this bad boy comes out on the market.  I’m tired of making my kids walk to church.

Ugh, wood trim.  I guess - if I have to.

Check out this video below.  Now just imagine me driving it right in front of you and you wishing you were me. 

That’s what I am going to do for the rest of the day.
