      This top down view is the best angle of the car. Too bad no one will ever see it.

      I guess it depends; I saw one video where the Pagani guy sounded more like he was pronouncing it with 3 syllables. "Why ruh" is 2; the way I was hearing it was more like Wire-uh, or WHY-er-uh. Of course, with a name like "why, er, uh" it makes it sound like the ultimate name of confusion. Hmm....

      After researching the "WHY RUH" more, it really is a sweet car.

      I have to say, though (and this really goes to show how far car engineering has advanced), the performance specs seem a bit underwhelming in its price category.

      The thing apparently goes 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, with an ~11.2 quarter mile. These are great numbers, but not anymore, and not for a $1m+ car.

      I realize there is far more to this car than accelaration numbers. However, there are a number of sub-$500,000 cars out htere that accelarate significantly faster, not to mention then upcoming hybrid Enzo and hybrid Porsche.

      I will withhold judgment until I see a full magazine review. But perhaps a lightly modified AMG mercedes engine doesn't quite hack it in a $1.0m+ supercar?

      Either way, I love this thing!!!
