So you win the lottery, pay the taxes and you want to buy a Veyron, and the nagging question in the back of  your mind is ‘ How much does it cost to own a Bugatti Veyron?’ Well in a word expensive. You might want to re think it and buy a Ferrari 488 instead.

If you have too much money for your own good, then here is a breakdown:

First you have to buy the car. That’s going to cost you around 2,500,000 (MSRP for a Veyron). Then the bils reall start to rack. This is not a car to drive down to your local Midas with a $29.95 oil change coupon in your hand. Some have seen yearly running costs at around $300,000 a year!

  • Bugatti ask for a down payment of $350,000 just to order it. You could buy a house for that instead.
  • If you decide to lease one then the monthly lease payments are $24,000. That’s like buying a Ford fiesta ST every month! There are a few rules that you will have to be aware of however, for instance you can only drive 2500 miles a year which is 6.8 miles a day and the lease is a max of 5 years.
  • Now the car is built in Molsheim, France, so if you live in the US they will need $40,000 to deliver it to your door.
  • Now you will need insurance and a little shopping around might pay dividends however, expect a monthly premium of $2,500 to $3,800 which is over $30,000 a year.
  • Gas prices have fallen and the average price is but $2.26 per gallon. The Veyron drinks gas at a massive volume especially if you use all of that 1,200 hp. City gas mileage is 8 and highway hovers around 13. The tank holds 26.4 gallons so each fill up will cost $60. If you lease then your gas will cost you $706.25 for 2,500 miles. Perfect if you only need to drive to the grocery store 3.4 miles away.
  • After the car is delivered you are contracted to take care of certain maintenance items including routine annual maintenance costing $20,000, detailing services around $10,000, a wheel and tire replacement every 10,000 miles that comes with a price tag of $50,000.
