A quick look at the IP address makes it all very clear

Looks like Hugh Jardon won't be back until the New Year as I've just doubled his suspension

I guessed as much.
Codders, i do hope you have just watched TopGear!

Bugatti Veryon And i believe he was driving it in auto!

W16
4 turbos
1001bhp
0-60 2.5 secs
252mph
840k

Anyone interested in cars, theres a times online Clarkson review of the Bugatti here:
Times

Even if your not interested, its worth reading from an engineering perspective, took 5 years to develop the gearbox!

Ah Hugh. He does like his bit of Cod tenderising. How will he survive? He should surely know that Cod is a protected species 'cos it can't look after itself.

Oh well, I was quite looking forward to hearing about his Osprey and Opti build.

Quite funny - Clarkson nearly swallowed his teeth describing that one, but what's the deal on it costing 5 mil to make each one, can this be true???

He was certainly raving about it, I doubt any of us will ever be lucky enough to see one in the metal. Wheres the nearest Bugatti dealership? Is there even a U.K importer? I find the 5million figure hard to swallow, having said that I have been reading about the car and the concept for years and there has been alot of speculation about whether or not it would emerge. I think its more of a technological demonstration/ experiment by the VW Audi group to show what they can do, but im sure a few footballers will buy them!

Could well be - loss leaders are nothing new - also the technology will no doubt have many spin offs.
