McLaren Boss Ron Dennis Vents over Bugatti's Veyron, Calls it "Pig Ugly" and a "Piece of Junk"

McLaren chairman Ron Dennis does NOT like Bugatti’s Veyron. No really, he utterly hates it. For example, he recently call Bugatti’s Veyron a “piece of junk”, saying it only beat McLaren’s F1 in the famous Abu Dhabi Top Gear race after ten tries.

Dennis vented a bunch in an interview with Arabian Business, and his actual words are decidedly more entertaining than mine.

“The Bugatti Veyron is a complete piece of junk. I think it is. I believe I can look at a range of women and I can see beauty in most of them, but I can look at a Bugatti and I think it is pig ugly.”

“The Veyron doesn’t do anything for me. I’ve been looking at it for years, and I don’t see one single thing that makes me feel good.”

Obviously not, considering it stole your company’s top-speed crown…

Regarding the Top Gear drag race, he explains, “When we did the race in Abu Dhabi, we beat it off the line so many times that the film crew was getting frustrated because the outcome was supposed to be for the Bugatti to win.”

“We had to do that whole thing about 10 times before it managed to get off the line cleanly and catch us up…Every time they dropped the clutch it bogged down and we were gone.”

Hey, everyone’s entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to the competition (that’s usually the best kind of opinion). But “pig-ugly junk”? That’s a bit harsh. It’s not a Sebring.
