Let's add another color to this new K-01 a little bit of brown. I like the color scheme and looks of that car. But no to carbon emission for me. I'd paint my bike with that color scheme.

The K-01 comes not only with a kit lens, but also with a matching kit car. :-)

Why yes, a Bugatti Veyron or two would make nice companions for the K-01...

"Real" drivers only drive black cars. With four doors. That pretty much look alike, no matter who made them.

This appears to have just been posted on Pentax.JP


There is NO information on the English version of the Pentax.JP site about this camera, it only appears on the Japanese language version of the site.

Bugatti should be designing new cars instead of painting their current line-up to look like toys! If they spend all their time just thinking about new color schemes, then they are doomed! A car is an engineered tool that is meant to take you from point A to point B in the most efficient manner possible. Who could possibly care to have such a colored car? The people at work would laugh at me if I showed up in the parking lot with something so outlandish! Bugatti, please make new cars with new features, especially full size ones with very large sensors, ah, I mean engines! (Hum, yeah, that was sarcastic... )

Well, Bugatti does make the 645D look dirt cheap......

The Veyron has an 8.0 liter, 16-cylinder ~1,000 hp sensor, engine, but because there are only two doors and two seats, it's "cropped" and you can't take advantage of its capabilities. You really need a car with four doors and a back seat to carry the maximum amount of groceries, especially if shopping for megapickles.

Oh, come off it now, two seats is fine, you can easily fit two people on each seat, so the Veyron 2-seater is easily competitive to a car with a back seat.

Those clamoring for cars with back seat are really just off the rocker (pun intended).

Especially down in Mt. Olive, NC at the intersection of Cucumber and Vine.

You have to have a back seat to achieve shallow leg-room and proper subject isolation!


I'll admit that if you can get past the funny looks and inherent limitations (and high price tag), the Veyron does what it was designed to do quite well. It's just not for everyone. Still, even with special editions, Bugatti has sold less than 400 units in nine years - what a disaster! They need to mark it down to $299 and forget it ever happened.

Personally I think the K-01 colour scheme is awesome. Fresh, bright, catchy, innovative.

I actually like the Newsom design a lot. I don't think Pentax engineering mapped out the complete package for the K-01 in the market.
