Asking price of Transformers-themed Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse drops to $1.89 million

Around a year and a half ago, a certain Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse (2014 model year) wrapped in a Transformers-themed finish was flagged for sale in California. Back then, the asking price for this one-off Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was $2.1 million. Now, the same Autobot-marked Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is being sold by iLusson, a dealership that sells hypercars in Orange County, California.

While this is the very same Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse that was offered for sale in February 2016, it wasn’t clear whether it changed hands by then. It might have been or might have not been sold at the time, when this Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse still had 352 miles (568 km) on its odometer. What is clear is that since that time, this Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was only driven for just a further 113 miles (180 km), as its odometer indicates it has already reached 465 miles (748 km). This added distance, however, is negligible, and that means this Transformers-themed Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse remains fairly new.

Its new asking price has dropped by around $200,000, as this one-off Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse – with Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of VF9SV25265M795079 -- is being sold by iLusso at just $1,899,000. That is still a lot of money to shed to purchase this Bugatti creation, but for a super-rich kid who is also a big fan of the Transformer’s Autobots, this example of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse could be a great buy.
