Video of the week: USA

The Bugatti Veyron was the fastest car in the world for a brief period. It is said that the car can burn through an entire tank of fuel in 12 minutes at top speed. So it is probably a good idea to keep track of your fuel gauge if you plan on driving this thing around.

Sales of the overtly retro Ford Mustang is down 19% this year in the United States. The car is becoming boring as everyone seems to have one. To beef up interest, Ford is offering a US$ 1,995 (Dhs 7,300) glass roof option for the 2008 model.
