Bugatti has launched an official used car scheme, Bugatti Certified. The new initiative trades the firm’s “young classics” previously been owned by “exceptional personalities and car aficionados”.
The new initiative guarantees full vehicle check-ups, preparation using Bugatti OE parts and, if the car has a complete service history (which Bugattis don’t?), either a one-year or a two-year warranty.
The new Bugatti Certified scheme brings official factory approval to the retail of the Veyron pool of around 300 cars. It’s still an expensive car but prices are falling and, as owners of the first cars decide to sell on their vehicles, Bugatti has moved to bring some factory-approved control to the marketplace.
Currently stock levels show the firm is offering four Grand Sport and three Vitesse for sale: there are, however, no standard Veyron or Veyron Super Sport for sale.
One of the cars has done a surprisingly high mileage of around 44,000 (think of the fuel bill). But then, it was the firm’s ex-demo car –indeed, it’s quite open about this fact on the site. It’s less open about vehicle age, oddly.
All prices are, perhaps unsurprisingly, POA: Pick up the phone (or, rather, get your man to pick up the phone) and find out more… the cheapest, we hear, is a snip at just over £800,000.
Interestingly, Bugatti can also upgrade older approved used Veyrons to more modern guise: an engineering facility “will be able to install technical improvements on the vehicles, such as performance enhancements and aerodynamic packages”.
We like the thought of buying a used Veyron and immediately thinking it not fast enough…
