Clarkson Drives 250 mph car

This is an entertaining read. Well known environmentalist and humanitarian Jeremy Clarkson writes of his experience driving the Bugatti Veyron in the Times Online:
You learn to raise an eyebrow at what’s only a foible, and then, as the road straightens out, steady yourself for Prince Albert’s boiler to gird its loins and play havoc with the space-time continuum. No, really, you come round a bend, see what appears to be miles and miles of dead straight road, bury your foot in the carpet and with a big asthmatic wheeze, bang, you’re instantly at the next bend, with your eyebrow raised again.

From behind the wheel of a Veyron, France is the size of a small coconut. I cannot tell you how fast I crossed it the other day. Because you simply wouldn’t believe me.

It's basically my car: a VW Passat estate, with a fancy bodykit and smaller wing mirrors.*

  • Joke?

    I actually believed you until you said that.

  • Your Passat is actually closer to a Skoda Octavia. Sorry.

    Clarkson is one of the best writers around in my opinion. I was going to write humble, but it's not.
