Bugatti vs smart Comparison (Most Powerful vs Most Noticed)

How does the smart fortwo, the most uniquely designed in the world, compare to the Bugatti Veyron, the most powerful car in the world? You might be surprised by some of the similarities:

I've been fortunate to have ridden in a friend's Veyron, and have to humbly disagree. The Bugatti drew more attention to itself driving around than my orange Elise and a hundred fortwos could have. Just opening the door, the smell of the leather will knock you over from ten feet away. The sound turns heads a block away.

Yeah, it guzzles fuel, but since it's a little hard to feel comfortable parking it anywhere it's not something that gets driven much.

1000 horsepower!
10 radiators!
Foot-to-Floor Range: 12 minutes!

The Veyron's a monster!
-I'm amazed that it still gets better mileage than your everyday Hummer!

I think 100 smarts could turn more heads than 1 Veyron.
But 50 Veyrons against 100 smarts... why would they be in the same place anyway?

One other thing, they have 3 and 16 cylinders, not valves. Each car has 4 valves per cylinder for a total of 12 and 64.

Considering I have never seen one on the road it just may make my neck snap trying to see one zipping by.
