Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron Pur Sang

For the money I'd take this over the Lamborghini Reventon in a heartbeat. Pur Sang means 'thoroughbred', and this very special edition of just 5 cars for the entire world comes completely stripped of paint leaving the spectacular aluminum and carbon fiber body structure of the Veyron exposed. Those unique alloys are absolutely drop dead. If this car were a woman it would be naked Monica Bellucci holding a cheese steak and a Guinness. Aside from looking like it's MSRP, it's actually lighter than a standard Veyron; paint weighs much more than you'd expect. I'll try to see if i can detect the weight loss when I personally roadtest a Pur Sang against a standard Veyron next week not.

Pur Sang Pour Moi! Sorry, couldn't resist. I love this thing - very elemental, raw, angry. However, isn't it almost paradoxical? Stripped on the outside, luscious on the inside, ridiculously advanced in the engine compartment? Actually, that sounds like the perfect sports car....
