Bugatti's Passeport Tranquillite program has been expanded to North America.
Maintaining a high-performance hypercar like a Bugatti Chiron or Veyron is not cheap. Need to change the oil in your Veyron? That will cost you $21,000, which is around the same price as a new Honda Civic. A new set of Bugatti Veyron tires will also set you back $42,000.
Bugatti's complex 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 also needs to be properly maintained to prevent power losses. Fortunately, Bugatti offers extended maintenance plans to give Chiron and Veyron owners peace of mind after the standard warranty period ends. Bugatti launched its 'Passeport Tranquillite' program in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia earlier this year, and now the service is being expanded to North America.
Signing up to the program includes one service per year with an official Bugatti service partner. As part of the service, a trained Bugatti technician regularly monitors and maintains the hypercar to optimize the performance. Owners who join the service program will also receive a Bugatti-branded car care kit that includes cleaning and detailing products.
Bugatti offers two- or four-year plans for the Passeport Tranquillite service. Both options include one service per year. The first service takes around 14 hours, followed by a 32-hour service every other year. Veyron owners can also choose between Collector and Active plans depending on how many miles are covered every year.
As the name implies, the Collector plan is designed for owners who keep their Veyron on display as a showpiece and don't drive it more than 125 miles per year, while the Active plan is designed for owners who regularly drive their Veyron.
Since it requires specific service intervals, the Passport Tranquillite program is only available as a four-year plan for Chiron owners. This plan includes a service each year, including an annual 'Low' 14-hour service and a 72-hour 'Major' service performed every four years. Because Passeport Tranquillite is assigned to the car and not the owner, the service program gets transferred to a new owner if the car is sold.
