Actually it cost £500,000 when new, and that was roughly $1M at the time. So 700% profit. As if I needed another reason to dream of being an original owner.
Brian Johnston Nov 10, 2012
So a 350% investment for the original owner.

This is well worth it I wish I could just see one
Matthew Mazzarelli Nov 10, 2012
As Matthew said, no official reports.
Matthew Mckernan Nov 10, 2012
The Bugatti sold for an un disclosed price of between $30 and $40 Million. The owner or the seller never said exactly how much it sold for. So officially, The $35 million Ferrari 250 GTO is the most expensive car ever sold.
Adithya Chandrasekhar Nov 10, 2012
I think they meant the most expensive sports/supercar. The Bugatti is a luxurious grand tourer of sorts
Thibault Leroy Nov 10, 2012
No the Bugatti 57SC Atlantic Coupe sold for 40 million $

lol a few of you are wrong. the topgear race you guys are talking about took place in Dubai, its very hot there and anyone who knows their sh*t will tell you that cars with turbos (veyron) dont perform anywhere near as well as they should, the hotter it gets. @Kevin, thats why the veyron got a poor start in that race off the line, its fact, obviously you cant argue with around 1000bhp so it beat t...
Nick Schnee Nov 11, 2012
Well, the Veyron weights like 2000kg and has AWD... Straight line performance only.

Veyron SS 0-60 is ESTIMATED at 2.2 seconds. The thing is, the F1 would crush the Veyron around a curvy track, since the F1 is so nimble and light. Even the MP4 12C went around the TG track faster than the Veyron SS, by 0:04 seconds, I do believe.
Kevin Carlin Nov 11, 2012
There's no way it could beat a veyron off the line..
Jordan Smith Nov 10, 2012
Nearly 20 years old and it still holds that record. That's awesome.
Luke Purdy Nov 10, 2012
Or 2.7 idk
Luke Purdy Nov 10, 2012
@jesse mate it does it in 2.6
Jesse Andersen Nov 10, 2012
Bugatti Super Sport- 0-60 2.2 McLaren F-1 0-60 3.2 No chance. Also I can see Mr. Bean wreckin one, haha.
Walker Carroll Nov 10, 2012
Also, it's TopGear. You can't take everything they do as fact. In a race, a Veyron will monster it. In the top gear race, the F1 beat it off the line and a little bit farther, then the Veyron overtook it
Matthew Mazzarelli Nov 10, 2012
Not sure how it almost beat the Bugatti but alright lol
Serge Pankratov Nov 10, 2012
Too many gadgets and crap and everything has to have a turbo and hybrid setup nowadays
Serge Pankratov Nov 10, 2012
Now this is a true raw machine. They dont make em like that anymore :(
Nick Schnee Nov 10, 2012
Eve heard of the P1, mate?
Kyle Kloewer Nov 10, 2012
Now who remembers when the F1 almost beat the Bugatti in Topgear? I saw that and said, why isn't mclaren remaking this!? Now they could destroy it!!
omarSV Nov 11, 2012
the rims suit the car fine... very elegant :)
supra_mkiv Nov 10, 2012
The wheels are fine they don't need to be fancy for this car
Daniel Eads Nov 10, 2012
I think people put too much emphasis on wheels.
Austin Bride Nov 10, 2012
If a rapper gets ahold of an f1 it needs to be seized by the people immediately
John M Weishahn Nov 10, 2012
It's not a rapper's car.
Justin Routh Nov 10, 2012

Jason Bartlett Nov 10, 2012

omarSV Nov 11, 2012
@chris you only open the bottom half, thereby causing the least disturbance to the airflow over the car. speed is of great importance in this beast.
Kian Francis Nov 11, 2012
They have ruined it with the spoiler
Chris McCormick Nov 10, 2012
