It’s hard to believe you can now buy a Bugatti Veyron that is over 10 years old, but here we are, drooling over this stunning red-and-black example built way back in 2007. I am sure we all remember when the Veyron burst on the scene 13 years ago, shattering our expectations of what a car can do. Never before had we envisioned going just so fast, having so much power, or so much technology in a road vehicle. The Veyron instantly became a household name thanks to all of its superlatives.
Not a track car, per se, the Veyron was more of a GT car, capable of covering vast distances briskly and comfortably. Helping with the brisk part of the equation is an 8.0-litre W16 with 4 turbochargers. This is the car that famously set the world record for the fastest production car at a blazing 253 miles per hour in 2005. Of course, the even more powerful Super Sport version of the Veyron would take the crown a few years later with a 258 mph run. This is truly a remarkable vehicle that will be remembered for a long time to come.
This particular vehicle is currently for sale at Kaaimans International in Nottinghamshire. Here is what they say about it:
This incredible car was originally delivered to the UK 2007 and registered in April. The car had 3 owners and has only covered 8,000 km (Approx 5,000 miles) from new and comes complete with service history/books, MOT, handbooks, charger, PDA and speed key. The car has been known to H.R. Owen Bugatti all its life and the services have been stamped in the book. Much like the great Bugattis of the past, the Veyron is a masterpiece of engineering and design. There is so much that can be said of this car.
Indeed, but I will try to keep this short so you can get back to drooling over these pictures. As you would guess, even 10-year old Veyrons don’t come cheaply. Make sure you leave a good amount in your account after the £1,250,000 asking price, too, as the cost of maintenance for the Veyron is notoriously steep: plan on spending around £70,000 for its service, which can only be performed in France, but includes a set of £25,000 tyres. A new transmission will run you £120,000. So, just keeping it in working order will cost as much as buying some very nice cars. Worth it if you can afford it, if you ask me.
The car is available at Kaaimans. Be Quick!
