Home / Auto News / News article: Bugatti Veyron Available In "Rape Yellow" - AutoGuide.com News

The Bugatti Veyron may not be the best car of 2010, but it certainly wins inaugural award for “most unfortunate color descriptor” with the available “Rape Yellow” paint scheme.

Before angry feminist groups start marching on Molsheim, it should be known that “rape” in this context refers to the flower from which canola oil is made, often known as “rapeseed”. Despite this, it’s still a poor exercise in judgement for Bugatti, as someone had to know that this translates poorly into English. Or they’re simply rich enough not to care. Perhaps it comes in a contrasting interior color called “Consent Black”?

    “constent black” Did you mean Consent? I like this site but it is very DIFFICULT to read. PROOF-READ YOUR COLUMNS and/or find contributors whose primary language is English and have taken a Freshman College composition course.

    Hey asshole, this guy graduated from Ryerson University’s Journalism School. How many times have you accidentally hit the wrong key when you’ve been cybering with your “girlfriend” that you met on reddit.com’s jailbait section and had her throw a hissy fit on you?
