I got a ride in one of those sedans, it was in the SF Bay Area, a private AMG/Brabus dealer had it, it was truly impressive. I really like those uber E class 124 sedans, the E60, 500E and the Hammer. They really deliver the goods.

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the hosts of the British car program 'Top Gear'. You'd have to get in a LOOOONG line for his job.

Search YouTube.com for top gear and Bugatti Veyron. He races an airplane from Italy to London in a Veyron. Highly entertaining video.

I thought that might be who it was. He is very interesting to listen to. I'll look for him elsewhere on youtube. Thanks.

Did they state how much it cost?

Dollars, not pound sterling.

Yes but its not cooler or more exclusive. Clarkson missed the point of such a car, or at least didn't say it. Said car isn't about speed, its about making a statement of the health of ones checkbook. IE I can afford the best, I have the only one etc.

Such cars will most likely spend their time sitting in a garage when not sitting in the country clubs parking lot. Probably somewhere in the Middle East.
