That does not mean I am right.

Are you a Koenigsegg fan? Every time I park in a parking garage I think about the "Koenigsegg doors" and how useful they could be. There are other cool things about the cars too.
I'm an engineering fan, any idiot can drive, the vast majority of people who do drive are in fact idiots. It's an overrated skill.

I don't think you made up what you said, you simply misunderstood the explanation, Mr. K speaks good English but it isn't his first language.

Most people behind the wheel cannot drive, and are idiots distracted with 100 things that have nothing to do with paying attention to the task at hand.

And some idiots car drive the wheels off a car, there are several in NASCAR.

Real driving talent is a skill that can be learned by most but is innate to some. But talent alone is never enough, you have to have the cahones to go with it.

The first 28 minutes is shop talk in Jay Leno's Garage, the rest is shop talk in the Regera. I wonder how many Koenigsegg's have made it to the U.S.? Compared to the Middle East and probably China?

Car News...

If there is a better looking Ferrari, I have not seen it. Oddly enough, the link below is pretty much all Ferrari has to say about it.

There is also the McLaren Speedtail:

That case can be had for around $30. It won’t say Bugatti on it, but that is the only difference. Cool video by the way!

The Geneva Motor Show is going on right now. I felt these were worth sharing:
