McLaren Chairman calls Bugatti Veyron “a complete piece of junk”

The Chairman of McLaren Automotive, Ron Dennis, recently said that the Bugatti Veyron is “a complete piece of junk.”

“The Bugatti Veyron is a complete piece of junk. I think it is. I believe I can look at a range of women and I can see beauty in most of them, but I can look at a Bugatti and I think it is pig ugly,” Dennis said. “The Veyron doesn”t do anything for me. I”ve been looking at it for years, and I don”t see one single thing that makes me feel good.”

Dennis also criticized BBC’s Top Gear and their recent road race organized in Abu Dhabi between a Bugatti Veyron and the McLaren F1. He said that the race had to be rigged to make the Veyron look quicker than it was.

“I know that they have to cut the car open to take the engine out. To make an engine in that configuration, you know, it doesn”t go around corners. When we did the race in Abu Dhabi, we beat it off the line so many times that the film crew was getting frustrated because the outcome was supposed to be for the Bugatti to win. So we had to do that whole thing about ten times before it managed to get off the line cleanly and catch us up. Because every time they dropped the clutch it bogged down and we were gone.”

Ouch – we are awaiting Bugatti’s and Jeremy Clarkson’s reply.

    Idiot. That's like having “Coca-Cola” Chairman saying that “Pepsi-Cola” sucks.

    Umm….The F1 lost fair and square! This is an impressive car, but still not quite Bugatti. Bugatti is way above either car. Compare this to a 911, GT-R, or something other than a Veyron.
    It looks like someone is a little jelous….

    this man is a complete moron and fraud of automotive history. words coming out from his mouth is totally worthless. We don't need someone who was kicked out of F1 business to tell us what street supercar is better. Go back to your HOLE dennis!

    This guy just made himself look like a complete jackass. Of course the Veyron isn't a looker, but that's not a requirement to be the world's fastest car. Plus it's more than speed and looks. The car is also great to drive. So your car is faster off the line… So is a Hayabusa, but a Hayabusa can't go 240+MPH… Neither can your stupid car. Plus once both cars are rolling, there's no contest. Go back to school you terd!
