Which Supercar?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Bernie Connors, Oct 23, 2004.


  1. Which of these supercars would you go for given you had the finances required to own such a machine?

    Bugatti Veyron
    ~980 HP

    Ferrari Enzo

    Hard to go wrong with either really. Both about the same money. You won't buy either for less than a million.
     
  2. none, I don't like these kind of cars, just give me a Landrover Defender :D

    Ferrari, because it looks better, IMO. As well, Ferrari is a well known symbol of status in many modernized cultures, which would make me a pimp :cool:
     
  4. Let us know why you picked what you picked as well. :)

    I picked the Ferrari. For one, it looks cooler. For two, it sounds better to say "Hey babe, come outside and check out my FERRARI."

    Bugatti sounds like a disease.

  6. Yeah, it would be a hard decision. Ferrari has years and years of innovation, but so does Bugatti. The Enzo has 12 cylinders and the Veyron has 16! They're both incredible machines. It would be a hard decision.

    You guys would pick an Enzo. For the million, you search high and low for a McLaren F1. To anyone who says they're all snagged up, get a Dupont registry book and you will find one. Or give Troy Trepanier a call, and have a machine built for you that will absolutely blow these cars away. BLOW THEM AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FERRARI AND BUGATTI SUCK!!!!!!!!!!

    I like the Veyron best.
    -It reminds me of the Batmobile, and it's a truely unconventional design that's sure to turn heads no matter who its made by.
    -The interior if classy and elegant, as opposed to the Ferrari's which looks like a suburbanites' fantasy of what a race car looks like, and doesn't look nearly as comfortable.
    -The shape of the Ferrari's cockpit makes it look like a blemish on a slice of red cheese on wheels.

  11. Those cars by Troy are amazing but a Ferrari and a Bugatti are in a different class. It's hard to compare a European supercar with an American custom. Two different beasts.

    Bugatti all the way. I've quite enjoyed many of Bugatti's designs lately, and have never liked Ferrari much in the looks department. Then again, have you guys seen the new Bentley coupe? Oh my, oh my indeed. And it's even more gorgeous in person. Kind of like an XK8 on steroids.

    Nah, whoring women out and taking a portion of their pay would make you a pimp. The car would just make you a classy pimp.

    I'd take my Mercury Mountaineer over those cars any day, but I wouldn't mind owning a pimped out Escalade ;) One of my neighbors owns a Ferrari and it hardly gets any use, but an SUV is good for anything.

    Bugatti! I don't like the body on the Enzo, and the bugatti just looks swank. :D
