Online auction platform in that decade bring a trailer Having been around, it has transformed the entire car sales industry and has become a frequent conversation (and argument) for enthusiasts around the world. This week the site listed its milestone 50,000th auction, which just so happens to be its most expensive sale ever: a 2008 Bugatti Veyron.
This is the 16.4 coupe model before the Veyron facelift which is done in Beluga Black with black leather and Alcantara interior. It is chassis number 89 out of 252 “normal” Veyron coupes, and it is the 29th out of 76 that came to the United States. While Black on Black isn’t usually my favorite spec for a Veyron, it just looks super classy, especially with all the original chrome trim and those incredible wheels still intact. The odometer shows just over 8,000 miles, which in the grand scheme of things is pretty high for a Veyron.
The car has been completely unmodified apart from a custom stainless-steel exhaust system that was installed by Sire Custom Performance in 2018. The listing includes a video of the car, and it looks significantly more huggable than the stock Veyron, which was Target; A BAT commenter called the shop to inquire about the exhaust, and the horsepower gains and weight savings are apparently negligible. The car also includes a stock muffler.
This listing gives an amazing insight into how expensive it is to own a Veyron, even if it’s barely run. (It then required a super-priced repair.) The Veyron uses special Michelin Pilot Sport Pax tires that were not used by any other car, and at the end of 2011 with 5,988 miles, all four were priced at $41,714.70. cost was replaced. (Yes, really.) Another was in 2017 at $47,738.20, which included an annual service, a slew of minor improvements, and a complete air-conditioning replacement that came in on its own at about $25K. Seriously, check out BAT’s full gallery and read through the service records – it’ll make you feel better about how much your oil is going to cost. Bugatti has also been launched recently For Veyron and Chiron owners that should make future stomach repairs easier.
When the Veyron was new it started at about $1.7 million, although they were available for the high six digits at the start of the last decade due to depreciation. Then in 2016, the Chiron debuted with a $3 million price tag, and second-hand Veyron prices started rising again. BaT has previously only listed one genuine Bugatti, the 1927 Type 38A, and it is one of the only modern hypercars to make it on the Veyron site – both a Porsche 918 And a LaFerrari Listed for auction and received super-high bids, but not sold. With 9 days left on sale, this Veyron is currently sitting at $1,001,000, so it could become BaT’s most expensive sale ever, beating the current record-holding Mercedes 300SL that sold for over $1.2 million in 2019 .
