OMG, the reason this thread blew up is precisely because not everyone wants a Veyron. Only an ignoramus would profess a deep desire for an item without knowing something about it first. Most people want a Veyron because it's a status symbol; it's very fast, very expensive and very exclusive. To know even that little bit about the Veyron invalidates your comment, let alone what was being agressively discussed in this thread!
I agree with KA24DE; despite it's enormous achievements the Veyron doesn't interest me either. Sure, the tech is cool and massive kudos to the engineers who built it however I don't like it and I think it's kinda pointless exercise in a world of restricted speed limits. For the record I believe this holds true for ALL supercars, not just the Veyron.
I also agree with Squidhead; the Veyron accomplished many automotive milestones and I love how it has two driving modes, top speed and handling mode. To do all that with an automatic transmission and a full luxury interior is, quite frankly, ludicrously cool and I feel that the engineers achieved all that just to give a big middle fingered salute to Piech and all the haters!
In my opinion, the greatest car ever made is the Toyota 86; everyone can own one and everyone can have a quick, stylish and fun driving car for the price of a boring sedan or hatch. Anything more than this and you're wasting money for a capacity you can't legally tap on the street.
The Lexus LFA is also very cool; the only flappy paddle car I'd be willing to own!!!
