Bugatti Veyron or a Private Jet?
January 21st, 2010
All car owners know that owning a car cost money. But, how expensive can it be? If you are owner of Bugatti Veyron it can actually be as much expensive as owning a Private Jet!
With a top speed of 400 km/h (253 miles an hour) and a price tag of $2.100.000 – Bugatti Veyron is one of the world´s fastest and most expensive cars. Owning this car is insanely expensive and you will have to be billionaire to afford it. Cost of owning a Veyron is close to $300,000 a year – insane right?
For instance, a routine service for Bugatti Veyron is close to $21.000!!!! (you can buy a new car for that kind of money). Buying new tires for your Bugatti will put a big whole in your wallet. A set of four tires costs close to $38.000!!
That is not all – every fourth tire change the Veyron’s rims must be stress tested for cracks, a sensible precaution in a car this fast. If they are found wanting, they will need to be replaced at a cost of $11.500 per corner.
With those prices in mind – some Bugatti owners are renting (or using their own) private jets to transport their car instead of driving it – it´s less expensive….imagine that!!!
