Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse: $2.5 million

Yahoo Auto -- There are those for whom a 1,001-horsepower, $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport may just not be quite enough. For them, Bugatti offers the Grand Sport Vitesse, with 1,200 horsepower and a price tag about a million dollars higher.

Bugattis are a bargain at any price.

If you can afford the sales price, you can afford to drive it also DanMtz.

Ettore would be amazed but also proud. Google Ettore's 1920s and 30s classics with their current auction results. Only those that have inherited them or entered the 8 figure club, like Ralph Lauren, can afford one now.

A car, such as this one, reminds me of the bumper sticker:

I'm betting it's a lot of fun but thin it would be more fun to randomly hand a ton of people $10k and have them e-mail me with what they did with it.

Not for me but I'm glad to see that something like this exists. Humans have great capacity to dream and create and it would be a sad world if all of the creativity was forced to stamp out average products. That would be a very sad world.

Now, does anyone haver a used Veyron going cheap?
