    Motortrend tested one and said the tires have to be replaced every 10k miles and the wheels every 30k at 75000 a set

    It's obviously an amazing car and I'd love to drive one, but damn does it look ugly from certain angles. That side shot makes it look hideous.

    Every Bolt on the car costs $85 ea and if one is losened its replaced instead of retighted

    and the 60k service of the car requires the car to be split in half, although no buggattis have been documented over 30k miles

    supposedly they had to leave it open air for heat to escape the engine. it would overheat with a cover...

    i believe it had something to do with having the thinnest sidewalls of any tire used on a car. every part of that car screams expensive. the tranny alone is like 180k...
