Regular Bugatti Veyron Maintenance Work Is Insanely Complex


And you thought Veyron ownership costs ended when you bought the car.

Chances are you’ve never owned a Bugatti Veyron. If you have and/or still do, first off, congratulations. Second, you’ll totally understand and relate to the ownership complexities specifically involving maintenance. In short, life with a Veyron is very expensive and that doesn’t include regular fill-ups. A regular oil and fluid change will cost around $20,000. That’s not a typo. Of course Bugatti really wants owners to have their Veyrons (and Chirons) maintained at Bugatti dealerships where their highly trained technicians will ensure everything is in order.

But here’s the thing: the Bugatti dealer will slap owners with that hefty bill upon competition of work. If owners don’t go to a certified technician for work, there’s a chance the warranty and other perks will be invalidated. It’s sort of a catch-22. However, as you'll see in the following video, there are Bugatti owners out there with the tools and knowledge required to handle things on their own.

Las Vegas-based exotic car rental firm Royalty Exotics boasts a 37-car fleet of exotics that includes a Mansory-tuned Veyron. Company owner Houston Crosta fortunately has the resources and technical talent in-house to maintain all of his cars, thus allowing money to be saved by avoiding the dealership. The video shows just how complex and potentially time consuming it is just to change a Veyron’s oil and change its fluids. For example, a total of 16 drain plugs need to be removed to change the oil. The work originally started because of a hydraulic leak coming from the rear. The engine cover had to be removed to find the leak. Still want to own a Bugatti?
