The Bugatti Veyron can now be bought through an official 'used approved' scheme
Looking to buy a used Veyron? Bugatti now offers an approved used car scheme.
Bugatti is testing and certifying cars for sale in a new ‘approved used car’ programme. Obviously rather different to the sort of arrangement offered by your local car showroom, Bugatti Certified is available for the marque’s historic cars as tested by Bugatti, or for the 2005-on Veyron series.
Certification is granted only by Bugatti Automobiles SAS, to guarantee any spare parts used are genuine Bugatti ones, so a warranty can then be issued. A personalisation programme is offered too.
For anyone ever looking to use the full 200mph performance of the Veyron, a car with Bugatti’s stamp of approval should help to put your mind at ease with regards to safety. The Veyron is notoriously expensive to maintain, so skimping on servicing and proper maintenance could be a concern when buying a second hand example.
Tyres, for example, need replacement regularly at a cost exceeding £30,000 a set. Even regular servicing costs upwards of £15,000 a time. The Veyron was after all the most advanced and technically impressive car when it was launched.
‘The Veyron is the most undervalued hypercar available today,’ said market expert Simon Kidston at the programme’s launch. ‘Any Veyron will have its place in the auction catalogues of the future. It’s a car for people who live with style.’
