Thread: £38.51 per mile

    Default £38.51 per mile

    The first Service on a Bugatti Veyron costs £13,645 – and then they get more expensive.

    Bugatti says the bulk of the cost is labour £6000 which includes the checking of the many and complex systems on the car.

    Then there’s the monumental cost of replacing the Veyron’s bespoke tyres, something Bugatti insists is done every 2500 miles. They cost £6325 each and to make matters worse only Bugatti can fit them.

    Also all 4 wheels need to be replaced every third tyre change ( after 7500 miles tops ) and that will set you back £29,900.

    At least you get a 2 year warranty with a Veyron but if you want to extend it then you’ll be asked for an extra £38,000 for a year or £63,000 for 2 years.

    Just 4 years of ownership, 3000 miles and £275k of depreciation would cost £38.51 per mile

    And the 17yr old over the road reckons they're the only decent, practical car on the road, thinks as a college ;aptop trained mechanic he'll be able to have 3. Mechanic must be on damn good wages.
    Told him last time my CDTi 150 would beat the Veyron for practicality every time, he won't have it.

    BUT if you look at percentages rather than pounds, a service costing £13k is less than 1.5% of the £1m purchase price, which is about on par with a Vectra VXR. The rest of it is ****** expensive but then it is a play thing of the mega rich so they can afford it!

    I think the old saying applies:

    if you have to ask, you can't afford it.

    The sort of people who own one of these, the figures you have quoted are probably pocket change to them

    Get a r35 spend hundred grand on it, better in every way. And won't brake down like most vags do.
