    10% of the price buys you something far more interesting, like an XJ or a Quattroporte.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    The source continues, saying "In his opinion, there should not even be a question about the best car in the world when you sit down to discuss it with your billionaire buddies. He doesn't want to build it until it's the car that finishes the argument, not the car that starts it."
    If he's not careful it'll end up being the punchline.

    They do need to get on with it. All this pfaffing about is just making them look sillier.

    With 800hp, how much more powerful would they even be able to make it?

    Engine power is largely dependent on Air intake and cooling.
    If this can't be done sufficient, they have to decrease the power.

    With the ongoing horsepower boom, they might be stuck behind the 8 ball for a long long time. As long as technologies are still advancing, it's inevitable that it'll be beat eventually

    Also detuning the engine makes it less mad and more smooth which is what you want in a car like this, fast but smooth.
