What $2.1 million will buy these days

Reliapundit alerts us to a photo essay in the wrinkled gray lady ("Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport").

In the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, a handful of buyers will get a rocket that gleams across the planet's surface faster than any true production automobile [in history].

...Particulars include 1,001 horsepower, 16 cylinders, 8 liters of engine displacement, 4 turbochargers, all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The removable-roof version of the Veyron coupe costs 1.4 million Euros, or roughly $2.1 million.

...when a car makes a Lamborghini seem tastefully understated, there's a problem.

Editor's note: this appears to be the first time ever that the words 'understated' and 'Lamborghini' have appeared together in a sentence.
