Ron Dennis has some harsh words for the Bugatti Veyron
McLaren CEO Ron Dennis is not the type to mix up words and when talking about the rival Bugatti Veyron, he didn’t waste any time letting the whole world know exactly what he thinks of the supercar.
"It’s just pig ugly, the Veyron doesn’t do anything for me," he said in an absolute straight face. "I’ve been looking at it for years, and I don’t see one single thing that makes me feel good."
That’s some very strong words indeed, even for whatever standards Dennis sets himself in. It’s one thing to call a rival supercar ugly, which won’t surprise us the least bit considering he’s got to promote his own newly-released McLaren MP4-12C. But to call the Veyron pig ugly?
That’s some serious harsh words right there. Then again, everybody’s entitled to their own opinion so we won’t completely take it out on Ron Dennis alone. We’re just thinking that he should probably have exercised a little more caution - or at least used a better choice of words - to describe the Bugatti supercar.
But hey, in the world of supercars, harsh criticisms like this one aren’t exactly breaking news material.
