http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1100696_this-is-how-expensive-it-is-to-own-a-bugatti-veyron-video  :o :o :o

DIY? (ignoring all owners signed agreement with Bugatti re factory servicing/repairs only) Thats a rip off altho 42 lits of  Mobile 1 AFE 0W-20 oil will set you back more than 500 - labour costs must be high :)

Would I have one if I had the money - probably yes.  Its some car at the end of the day - certainly faster to 60mph than Webby's 2.5  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Strikes me as being like keeping an English Electric Lightning to nip down to the shops. Impossible the get it even remotely on song on public roads, so why go the expense of owning it at all - other than as a status symbol. ::)

Yeh but what a status symbol  :D :D
Hopefully the shops ain't too far away of you might have to pop into Tesco's for a top-up of Avtur  :y :D :D
After all, I did see a jockey empty a F3 in 4 minutes once   :o

Suppose if you've the money to buy one the running costs aren't really a factor.Personally if I wanted a car along those lines I'd have an XJ220.

For billionaires $20,000 for an oil change won't even register that it's cost anything.  ::)

 We're all waiting for the proof :)

. . . Once we've got the proof of a fault we'll concentrate on beating Veyrons  ;D

Re the Veyrons themselves I don't think they're ugly at all. I think they're slightly ironic in that it's quite a chubster and yet the fastest car in the world. Each to his own I suppose
