Don't ask about gas mileage
What would you do with a million euros?
If your immediate answer is "Buy a car," here's the car you're going to buy: the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, which will be produced by Volkswagen (!) in a limited edition of three hundred for yes, one million euros. Plus tax.
If your response to this is "But this is insane," well, you'll get no argument from me. I mean, a million euros would buy you quite a fleet of Volkswagen's real cars.
Still, zero to 300 km/h (188 mph) in 14 seconds? Top speed of 400 km/h?
No. NO. I must look away now.

What's insane was my first thought: "Could you fit a car seat in that thing?"
You might be a father, if...
Wow..a blistering hot car...from VW to boot.
1001 horse power?
Doesn't look like you can haul heavy equipment in it. Does it come with a trailer hitch?
If I can fit in it, that meets the description of "hauling heavy equipment".
All "money is no object" questions are bullshit. Money is always an object. Sure, I'd rather have a Ferarri than a Ford, but that's an apples to oranges comparison.
Ask me to choose between the Ferarri, or the Ford with $100,000 in the glove box (to make it even), and I'll take the Ford every time.
Just as well. A hundred grand would just about cover an engine rebuild on the Enzo.
