Wow, when it comes to look this is what Veyron needed for years in my opinion.
Price, classic example of we will charge 2.4 million because we can and there are people which will buy it not because they love the brand or this model but because newspapers will start each story with ''....driving a 2.4million car''
And this people love to hear about their ''status'' and wealth.

€2.4 million and it has a ... key !?!? That's all a bit "last century"...

Nice lines though. Looks good in black. The front view reminds me a bit of the old Alfa CZ with the 3 square lights either side.

Nice car and nice photography. I especially like the architectural metalwork in the first set of photos. And I have to agree on that key, it's a bit naff. At least develop a 'smart key' similar to BMW. Smart key video below. Overall, I can't afford it.

Love the "limited to 261mph." Wondering who'll be the first to take it past 300 (developers aside)

Better looking than the original. Nice building and location too . I'm not clear how you'd open the doors tho' - it looks like the frame curves over below the upper edge of the door glass

That's such a confused gimmick - it looks like they couldn't decide whether to make it an App (controlling and viewing the vehicle's settings) or a proper remote key (allowing access to various parts of the the car). So it doesn't do either properly or elegantly, in my view.
