A question I propose: Is it worth manufacturers producing fantastic small-segment luxury cars?
An example in case is Proteus who are about to release the Bugatti Veyron. The Volkswagen owned, Bugatti has developed the Veyron powered by a formidable 16 cylinder, 1000 hp quatro-turbo engine. This car is bred from a prestigious line and includes some brilliant engineering. You can bet though that they won't be selling this down at you local VW dealer.
This is a stunning car, but it is so exclusive and won't make it onto the race track, so do you think that it will have much success as a slotcar? With what competition would you run it with on your slot-track?
I think that it is very cool and will probably get one for my collection.
