Seen here on ice and at a wintry fuel station is the world’s most expensive sports car, the upcoming Bugatti Veyron.

The VW Group’s 252-mph, 1001-hp W-16-engined supercar is about to be released in September 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. These pictures are showing it completely undisguised. With an estimated price tag of $1,000,000, the Veyron is definitely a car for the super-rich only.

The Veyron was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2002 and actually scheduled for release in 2003 but postponed again and again. Since then, VW has had considerable success selling the expensive Bentley Continental GT (there’s a one-year waiting list). And thus, there is new hope inside the company for the planned production of 300 Veyrons per year.

Kinda cool that they're serious about producing it once again. Looking at those pics, i wonder how it drive in the snow with 1,000 horses on tap with a blib of the throttle:D. AWD definitly helps and it is a heavy mofo i'd image and so it probably doesn't drive too bad on light snow assuming you keep your right foot in check.

I don't think they ever gave up the idea of building it but there were a lot of problems with the concept that had to be ironed out so the car was out of the media for a while.
