Bugatti is in the VAG group. Jaguar is Tata's. As for Koenigsegg: http://www.nytimes.com/1997/01/26/we...pagewanted=all
I wouldn't put any American brands up there although on occasion some jewels have been produced by American brands, such as the Ford GT. Just like Renault and Peugeot have produced some nice cars but suck in general.
Just an observation/curiosity, definitely not a rule.

I don't see Renault and Peugeot making Vipers, ZR1's and GT350R's, aside from the Ford GT. There are millionaires here in Dubai that swear by cars like the Viper despite being able to afford a hundred F12's. Not everybody buys for the badge, also an observation.

Oh and McLaren isn't owned by any foreign company and this is going to ruffle a few feathers but I'd much rather get a 675LT or 570S over their respective competitors from Italy or Germany.

Never said that no nice cars are made by non German/Italian/Japanese brands. Anyway, enough is enough.

The market for V8s is very small in Europe, and Dubai and UAE had some real nice straight roads, ideal for big power, big cylinder cars
