Unhappy Veyron 18 months behind schedule...

VW president Bernd Pischetsrieder has demanded changes be made to the car to make it... softer according to Autocar magazine. Not sure exactly what they mean by softer but it doesn't sound good at all. Apparently Pischetsrieder feels the car is too much like a racing car The delays are also due to engine cooling problems and reliability issues with the 7 speed gearbox.

Well, the Veyron is supposed to be the ultimate car. The perfect blend of luxury, performance, and class. It is not a stripped-down racecar like the F40 or Enzo.

However, I've yet to see any car become better by being made "softer." "Softer" seems to mean "pussy-fied."
