Nobody likes having to pay for the maintenance on their car. Paying $30 for that oil change feels like you just spent a fortune — but if you think that $30 for an oil change was pretty steep, imagine having to spend $20,000! And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Bugatti Super Sport’s routine services.
Some of you might be thinking: “If they can afford a Bugatti in the first place, they shouldn’t be worried about money.” Yes, the owners are very well off when it comes to money, seeing as the Super Sport costs over $3 million. No matter how much money you have though, spending a luxury car price’s worth on maintenance costs is beyond crazy. Bugatti recommends that service be done about four times per year, that’s $80,000 a year out the door to keep your car in shape.
The Super Sport is considered one of the fastest cars on the market — but that speed comes with tire wear, and with that yet another cringeworthy price tag. After all that high-speed driving, tire wear is drastically higher than an average car — and because of this, you can’t just throw any old tires on this bad boy. The Super Sport requires a special rubber compound tire that runs for $30,000 a set. And just how often do you need to replace these tires? Bugatti recommends you replace them after only 2,500 miles!
After it’s all said and done, you could easily spend $100,000+ per year on maintenance alone. If you are the type of driver who wants to get the most out of the supercar, you could be looking at a yearly cost of $300,000. So, the next time you take your car in to Pep Boys, be glad you only have to spend the little amount that you do. It could be a lot worse!
