Not Benz but $1M OOPS

If you can't drive a Bugatti, don't drive a Bugatti. Money doesn't buy brains.

I saw a Bugatti on Top Gear. It has about 1000HP, and a horse power gauge in the dash...ridiculous!

I've gone 125+ mph in my Boxster at Sebring in a Florida downpour. It's not as bad as you think.

Take good care of your car and it will take good care of you.
