There are cars in the world that most people can’t own and it’s not about just the price tag. If it’s only the base price, some could actually start saving up and buy it when they turn sixty or so.
But, the real problem in owning one of world’s most luxury cars lies in something else – its maintenance costs. Premium cars are fun to ride and more importantly amazing to show off to your friends. Bugatti Veyron is one such car in the world which costs millions to own, but no one ever thought of the costs it may entail, if one uses it on a regular basis.
It’s not easy to find an owner of the Veyron who is ready to share his views about the car and explain its maintenance costs to the ordinary crowd. A YouTube video has finally brought the best of luxury cars together and has the actual person behind it explain the costs. If you are a budget person, it’s best to stay away from what they have to say, because every aspect of the car is so expensive that you could actually, buy a new car for each service visit.
Taxes are an important aspect which you can never skip. In order to own a Bugatti Veyron, it is mandatory to pay $320,000 in pure taxes in the state of California. The sum may rise or go down a bit based on the location. The car costs $3.2 million and after you own it, the long journey of maintaining it at its best performance begins.
In order to change the tires, that is when you change all four of them excluding the wheels; it will set you back by a decent $32,000. In terms of Veyron, this is not an exorbitant price, even though in real world terms, you can buy another car for this price tag. When the time comes to actually replace the wheel, it’s going to set you back by another $120, 000. Changing the oil for the Bugatti Veyron is another feat as it costs $20,000 and a yearly service with the official partners is quoted at $30,000.
With all these said, it’s more about being able to own the car and maintain it than simply purchasing it as soon as you manage to earn three million dollars. That’s a lot of money to spend yearly on this car. It’s a luxury symbol, the best of automobile technology and purely premium.
