This week in Greenwich, the weather is sunny, the temps are well into the 70s, and Miller Motorcars has a fresh Veyron parked out front. Finished in Deep Red and Chocolate -- like a 987-horsepower cherry cordial -- it looks suitably delicious gleaming in the midday sun. In a lot cluttered with Rolls-Royces, Bentleys and Aston Martins of every type and color, the Bugatti looks like a predator among prey, always poised to strike. Everything else around it, no matter how stately and wonderful, looks merely average by comparison.

UPDATE: If you want more Veyron, turn back the clock and visit our June, 2006 post on the first two cars that stopped at Miller as they toured dealers in the region. It's newly-gallerized for your pleasure.

      I would characterize the original Bugattis as over-engineered in some ways (full-width body in 1921, gasketless heads!) but backwards in others (solid front axles, crude chassis). The design aesthetic was usually superb, however.

      Subsequent Bugattis have been similarly over-engineered, but in this case it's the performance that's jaw-dropping, not the unity of design. I mean, really, 7(?) separate radiators is hardly an elegant cooling solution. I appreciate the open engine bay, but the horseshoe grill has no function.

      1st, I did not dis the bugatti on any level. Simply injecting a point about performance/dollar ratio. The car is beautiful, but no engineering marvel considering the investment.

      but boy, you guys really make a good argument for VW/bugatti and production costs, if your touted numbers of losing 3.5 million per car are correct. Way to go!!

      I live and work in Greenwich too... right on the Ave. actually. I'm going to have to swing by there after I get out of here and take a peak if it's still sitting outside...

      Also yes Brad is a complete idiot... I think it's most amazing that you make comments about topics you obviously have no knowledge about. Do some research on R&D, production and material runs/costs, and volume before ever posting again. Thanks.

      Very well written piece. Appeals to one's taste and carnivor instincts.

      sweet man. you work anywhere cool down (i'm just north of boston) there? Must be a fun/tortuous commute past Miller everyday

      Is it more amazing that a company can produce a car like that for a million dollars, or that honda can build a civic si and sell it for 20k? anyone can do anything with out the constraints of a budget.

      I must disagree with two of the posters here.
      I think the more reserved color scheme is beautiful.

      I think the car as a whole is, too. It's gorgeous, maybe not your tyical sleek sexy but it screams power. As mentioned, it looks like a predator, like a great white shark perhaps, whereas similar sports cars look more like gazelles, built for speed but not for killing.
