You know a car is something to be reckoned with when it looks like a spaceship and has brake discs that are almost as big as the wheels. Seeing that let me know this car goes fast. Otherwise, there would be no need for such a massive braking system. The 2017 Bugatti Veyron is a pretty cool car. I have never seen a car shape like that before. Is it practical for hauling the family around to soccer practice and other places? No, it is not. This is a sports car that is made pretty much for entirely hedonistic satisfaction. It is not, in my opinion, on the utilitarian side at all. Still, it is something cool to look at and own if you have that kind of income.
I like to see the specs of cars like this. It would be cool to even drive one. However, it would not be a practical investment for us at all. It is one of those things you buy if your disposable income has a lot of zeroes attached to it. Still, a car guy can dream. Right? The 2017 Bugatti Veyron is certainly not a station wagon. Do you remember them from back in the 1970s? The long cars with the woodgrain look on the outside? There used to be plenty of them in my neighborhood when I was growing up. It was the precursor to the minivan.
Bugatti vehicles look fast. They look sporty. They even look aggressive. It is funny how the shape of a car gives it a personality. Car shapes kind of become iconic in our culture. Hence the old station wagon look as well as the look of the family minivan. Vehicle shapes get tied to eras, lifestyles, status and more. Still, it would be cool to have a 2017 Bugatti Veyron in my driveway to admire.
