    My word, that has to be one of the longest hoods I've seen on any car before. And that's because of how preposterously large the engine is. But anyway, Sub Zero, easily. Like every other pre-war Bugatti, it exudes beauty and opulence in a way that no car of another marque could.

    So vast and valuable that they'll never be driven. Uncool.

    It's right above the one that deploys the Plebian Vacater.

    Sub zero, just look at it
    It's 3 tons of magnificence.

    It’s cool, but can you actually see where you’re going when you drive it?

    Edit: Fun fact, the power-to-weight ratio of this beast is roughly the same as a Peugeot 106.
