This car is an exercise in excess... in other words, it's wicked cool!

 

Pay close attention to the specs!

The point is for rich people to have an excuse to spend mega bucks on an exotic machine that few other people in the world would have.  In the world of cool toys, "just because" is all the reason it needs for existence.  It exists because guys are fascinated by ultra performance, whether it be cars or optics.  More horsepower and faster is better, regardless of whether or not you'd ever actually be able to use it.  It provides a topic of discussion among supercar enthusiasts and appeals to the Tim Taylor inside many of us.  It appeals to anybody who still hasn't outgrown the teenage desire to go fast.  Just listing the specs -- 1001 hp, 4 superchargers, 10 radiators, 253mph top speed, etc -- it's fascinating from a purely engineering standpoint.  It is excessive and unnecessary, yes...which is precisely the point.

O.K., I guess I can buy that.

 

   (Well, not literally of course.)
