Apparently only 300 Bugatti Veyrons were made – and one of those is going under the hammer at the forthcoming ‘Fast and Furious’ sale on June 5 at the Blackbush Auction Centre in the UK.
There are over 350 ‘Fast and Furious’ cars to be auctioned but only one Veyron, and already there is speculation as to who might bid for the world’s fastest ‘proper’ car.
In the UK, a new Veyron will set you back a staggering £1 million plus, and I would hate to think how much the lease payments might be. There’s a distinct possibility that you could buy a new Golf GTI with each and every lease payment you made.
This particular car was registered in 2006 and it’s got all of 7,400 kilometres on the clock, while its condition is described as “almost new”.
CarAdvice was lucky enough to experience life behind the wheel of a Veyron in France, and lived to tell the tale. Only those who have driven the car under maximum acceleration will know what I mean by ‘lucky to be still here’, as the sheer G-force assault on your body is beyond anything you can possibly imagine.
Sixteen-cylinders, four-turbos and 12-radiators are what this car is all about, but it also grips the tarmac like and F1 car and at 200 plus km/h, you can remove your hands from the steering wheel and hit the 407 millimetre brakes with maximum force, and the Veyron will not move a centimetre off its line – miraculous, is all I can come up with.
Other ‘Fast and Furious’ cars going under the hammer at Blackbush on June 5 include an Aston Martin DB9, Ferrari 430 F1 and Maserati 4200 Cambiocorsa Coupe.
We’ll be sure to let you if the Bugatti is sold, and for how much.
