Besides the paint job being... insulting, How did the guy get in it to drive it out? There was hardly any room on that side to open the door. Do they ship it with the chauffeur inside with a pee bottle and a clif bar?

You better work, biatch.

We can hope it's Beiber's. Something that fast could make a SPECTACULAR fireball.

I just want to drive it.  I want to see if my neck muscles can handle the acceleration of 1,200 HP.
 
2014-08-30 08:05:58 PM
That is the lamest of things ever.
 
2014-08-30 08:06:21 PM
Why are they driving it about with the cover on?  Personally I would like to see where I am driving, but that is just me.

It's sad to see a car of that caliber painted up like someone's old Honda Civic.

I hate browsing at work sometimes. Sure, ads get blocked but there was only one picture that I could see in that article.

It's either the L'or Blanc, which is a porcelain-body special edition, or one of the three known copies of that edition.  Symbolic says it's a copy.  Interesting story in that second link about how and why it's painted the way it is.

I like the "want it in presentable condition" remark. NO, how about factory NEW condition! "hey man, sorry about the cheetos dust on the steering wheel. I"ll get one the guys to clean that up for ya"

I especially like how a car dealer that sells $3,000,000 cars can't afford a place for the farking car haulers to pull in and unload. the center turn lane in the middle of the street is good enough. farking twats. They'd lose their farking minds if there was an accident too I'll bet.
 
2014-08-30 08:16:17 PM
Any guesses on how long before the owner or one of the dealership employees taking it on a "test drive" splits it in half with a phone pole?

"Questionable" paint job?

I guess the question is, "Is this paint job terrible or bad?"

Yeah, and what kind of jackass covers their shipping trailer in nothing but mirror finish panels?  Can you imagine trying to follow that on a sunny afternoon?  Are there no regulations about that?

Most dealers I know do that. BTW...whats shipping insurance is for? Oh yea!

NOTHING about Bieber is "cool" in any way, shape, or muther-farkin' form!

Got that, Subbo?

TFA points out that the front window has a clear covering on it, specifically so the driver can see. The pictures in TFA even show this.

Seems like you might have issues with your eyesight either way, so I don't know if you should drive any cars.

That's a lost cause my friend. Just like all these clowns with their 86000000000k HID super-badass-blind-the-ever-loving-shiat-out-of-you-brighter-than-the-l ights-on-the-motherfarking-space-station headlights. Apparently there are no longer laws about that. And they cannot be installed unless at least one headlight is angled directly at my farking sideview mirror.

Veyrons are fugly no matter how they're painted. I mean that grille looks like it came off an Edsel.
 
2014-08-30 08:29:27 PM
Better than the gorillas that trucked my muscle car cross-country. They put it on the truck last, so they loaded and unloaded it a dozen times, stood on the cowl panel and dented the shiat out of it, and charged me extra because it wouldn't start- which it wouldn't by the time they dumped it off.

Yeah, that Bugger looks like somebody's nightmare.
 
2014-08-30 08:29:54 PM
My company used to be located right across the street from these guys. They were always loading or unloading something interesting. One time it was 1963 vintage Indy cars. I often found some excuse to amble over to see what was coming off or going on to the trailer.

I don't think it's that horrible. I find myself agreeing with the author. At least it's unique.

Hell, you can even buy a monochromatic Yugo. Why would you want to do the same with a cat like this?

Not only that, I've seen far worse, I like the red and black combo, as well as the lines of that paint job. Like I said, if I wanted a single color, I could save about $3 mil.
 
2014-08-30 08:34:23 PM
Of COURSE I am a very big deal!  Just LOOK at the expensive things I can afford to piss away money on!
 
2014-08-30 08:35:02 PM
Such an ugly car,  and I'm not just talking about the paint job on it,  the car looks like it was inspired by a blowup dolls face.

His is all chrome. Shiny, shiny so as to reflect that bright California sun into everyone else's eyes. Because that's how he rolls.

From the passenger side.

I assume it's a specialized cover for transport. I've shipped an exotic car before, and they specifically tell you not to put on the car cover because it acts like sandpaper on the surface with all the movement of the cover against the car, like when it's on a ship crossing the ocean. That was the usual cover you'd use for covering the car when parked though.

Don't forget it comes in 4 door charger form now too...

It's a 3 million dollar car with a custom paint job. The dealer isn't going to be the one to put the first chip in the paint. They probably keep that cover on until the customer shows up to get it.

One of the guys at work wants to ship an old bike from Colorado to Jacksonville.  So, he said FedEx or some other Freight.  And he wants to build a crate for it.  I think something like specified motorcycle carriers is better (jcmotors.com?).  What do?

/he'd probably be better off selling the bike and buying another when he got to Florida
 
2014-08-30 09:08:12 PM
Probably not Justin Beiber. I bet the car has a "gold grille".
