So sad... That'll be a tough car to replace. I don't think 650,000 lbs will buy another one of those.

Yeah, the color is definitely not for everybody.

The price of these cars is going to increase a little bit now because of the accident.

Maybe he'll get a Veyron next time around, or the new upcomming MP4 12C.

Yeah, just read that infact, hadn't heard about that before.

You're right, it happens, it's just too bad it had to be in that car...or any comparable car for that matter.

What does “There was one casualty but he was not trapped” mean? Just before the first break in the article

Seeing the f1 like that brought a tear to my eye.


But on a different note, am I the only one who thinks this article sounds like it was written by a 3rd grader?

I would actually agree with that. As much as I love the Veyron, the Mclaren is just a down right awesome piece of engineering and it's enforced by the fact that it'll still spank a lot of the world's top production cars all these years later.

Screw maintaining it... the initial cost is the big nut!

Yeah, I know you mean. I used to always dream about driving that particular car when I played it back then too. Unfortunately I never got that far in the game to unlock it.

Actually the maintenance is the real bank breaker.

An Inspection For Bugatti Veyron Costs As Much As A New VW Polo




The exclusive world of supercars has a price to match, and the Bugatti Veyron makes no exception. An usual inspection has a price of about $21,000, the amount of money that can bring you a Volkswagen Polo with an average level of equipment.
The Brits from Autocar made an analysis of maintenance costs that must the owner of a Bugatti Veyron must bear. Besides the enormous cost of acquisition and high fuel consumption of a Veyron, the owner pays each year $21,015 for a routine inspection. This amount is so big that matches price of a brand new Volkswagen Polo, with a medium level equipment, or the price of entry-level version of VW Golf VI. Unfortunately for the Veyron owners, the inspections are not the only the problem that they encounter. The very frustrating element for the owners of the Veyron is that a similar inspection for a Ferrari Enzo cost the equivalent $2,742.

The most powerful production model in the world should have thoroughly inspected wheels by Bugatti at every 4 tire changes. If a rim shows any imperfection, it will be changed. Each rim costs $11,425 and a set of four tires for the Bugatti Veyron cost $38,384. Pressing Veyron’s pedal to the metal, consumes 1 gallon at every 2.5 miles. The 26.5 gallons tank is emptied in just 12 minutes while a refill costs about $65.
Given the high maintenance costs of the Bugatti Veyron, it is not surprising that the owners of the supercar also chose their cars to be transported by truck up to the place where one wants to drive it, and then he follows it by air to the location. Thus, it can enjoy his supercar without the risk of an accident on the route of hundreds or thousands of miles that you have to go through to the destination and significantly reduce the travel costs.
