I was lucky enough to be standing in front of that Bugatti at the time. As Blake has said, the sound on the video is NOTHING like how it sounded. It was awesome.

Roots blown 1.9 litre straight 8.

Good luck with the upgrade Ryan. You're not allowed to "hot rod" websites over here. The cops are right onto it.

Ah, so that's why we were H.A.M.B.less today. Great work Ryan! it is super smooth and quick now!

Anybody had any problems with the new H.A.M.B.? My search function doesn't work and my uploaded albums are empty...
