Used Bugatti Veyron Wheels Will Cost You More Than A Brand New Porsche 911!

In most parts of the world, including plenty of areas in the States, $100,000 would buy you a nice home. But if you’re a Bugatti Veyron owner, then that kind of money is reserved for a complete wheel and tire set – used that is.

Made by OZ and covered in factory-spec Michelin rubber, with 85 percent of tread left, this wheel set is offered for sale on eBay at an eye-watering asking price of $100,000.

The seller is based in Fort Lauderdale and says that, despite the price-tag for what is basically a second-hand set, this is actually a good deal, as buying it new from Bugatti is said to cost $50,000 more, bringing the total to 150 big ones.

For the sake of comparison, the new 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera starts at $91,000, while a new Volkswagen Passat just a little over $25,000 in the United States. In Veyron currency, that won’t even cover a replacement fuel tank, which will set owners back for about $43,000 if it’s installed by the company’s technicians. Replacing the four turbochargers, with the labor cost included, is another $35,000 or so.

As steep as they may be, these amounts pale next to the asking price of a complete Veyron interior on the used car market, which went down from $150,000 to $140,000 recently.

This goes to prove that it’s not enough to be able to afford buying a hypercar such as the Veyron, as the maintenance is definitely for 1 per-centers only as it could easily deplete a bank account with not enough zeros in it.

    Those are maintenance items on this car; the tires are supposed to be replaced every 2500 miles and the wheels every 10000…so I imagine these are “used up.” I also read a new set of tire to be ~$35K and wheel set in the $50K range, making these overpriced a tad.

    people bought this kind of cars are rich enough to buy parts brand new. why would they buy second-hand??

  • IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY THE TIRES AND RIMS ON A VEYRON WERE SUPPOSED TO BE REPLACED AFTER 30K MILES. SO THESE ARE TO BE USED AS PAPER WEIGHTS?
