2010 Top Gear Awards: May’s Car of the Year
James examines the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, minus bodywork…

At any rational level, the best Bug is pretty pointless, isn't it? It's too big to feel like a sports car, and too heavy as well. It's too wide for the sort of road where it might be interesting, and the price of a service is terrifying. The tyres cost as much as a decent roadster, and you could wear them out very quickly.
Two hundred and sixty miles per hour? Even if you were the last person alive on Earth and had the whole of the planet's road network to yourself, there would be few opportunities to use it. This car is so far ahead of the roads it runs on that the infrastructure will probably never catch up.
