    If by "focused" you mean "not at all focused", then yes.

    If I recall correctly, we already went through this. I was not comparing the cars. I was showing that a company can protect cars from modifications and unauthorized resale. I wasn't even suggesting that the thought crossed the minds of the higher-ups at VW.

    You don't even need a CSR260... almost any seven can do it
    Even I got faster times than a Koenigsegge around a track


    And it's all a vinyl job as KonaGreen has stated before many times...
    Printed cover-all vinyl..

    It's probably all vinyl work too. Anyway the owner/wahtever dude at BAPE likes to do this shit:

    At least Lennon's car was an actual paint job, and a fairly decent one at that.

    I don't know why someone would do up a Veyron in pink leopardskin, unless they were Japanese, of course. No offence, great culture and all, but they are the same people who buy Hello Kitty merchandise without a whiff of irony...

    Anyway, can the owner of a Veyron not do with his/her car what they please? Didn't they just pay the average lifetime income of the King of Latvia for it, only to be told they can't paint little fishes or whatever on it? Isn't this World America yet?

    When I was 18, I drove a 1981 Mercedes 380 SL. I had the thing repainted, and included a 2-inch Mercedes emblem on each front fender, right in front of the doors, in that flashy P-Diddy-esque "Illusion" paint. It's blue, it's purple, it's red, it's gold... It's a little tacky. But, by God, that's what I wanted, and it only added about 100 dollars to the price of the paintjob.

    It may not have been in the best taste, but surely Mercedes won't hunt me down and sue me over it. I doubt Bugatti could do so either.

    This is obviously the best Veyron ever manifested by the great god himself.

    Now all we need is a pink leopard skin Enzo, and Wall Greens will be put out of business.

    Yeah, I'm talking about the Roller that appears later.. And yes, about 8miles north of GoodWood. I've walked the path allround the factory, quite cool, duff shells of the Phantoms and the staff go round the site in Factory owned Mini Coopers. How cool is that!
