Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is probobley one of the finest cars ever produced on this planet. It was made in 2005, and it is the fastest ever production car. The highest spead it reached was 408.47 km/h (253.81 mph), done by James May.

It has a w-16 engine, around 700 horse power, goes from 0 – 100 – 0 km/h time of 8.6 seconds and costs around 1.1 million euro (1.5 million dolars!). Yeah, I know, it's not for the mortal, but I'll say it again, it's a damn nice car!

Hey, I wan't to Write About Cars!

I was actually inspired by the best show on TV that is about cars - Top Gear. It showed me some aspects that I was never able to grasp, you know, being a total dummy at the subject of cars. But, watching those guys explain everything in simple terms, made me wanna know something more about cars. 

I thought I'd start with my favourit car of all time - the Corvette ZR-1. But, you see, the problem is that I am not interested in the new edition from 2009, but the original ZR-1, the one that didn't have a glass seal on the hud under which there is another metal cover?! What is up with that? They thought they made it more aerodynamic and a lot more modern looking, but in fact, they just ruined a perfectly good car! 

The price of the original ZR-1 is around $65.000, the new edition is nearly $100.000. It is a mild rise, but it's not worth it, because it is so much worse thatn the original concept. Maybe it is the price to pay for that 6.2L supercharged engine, but...

If I ever buy a car, it will be the Corvette ZR-1! The original!
