Warrantywise has come up with a warranty for the Bugatti Veyron that will expectedly leave a number of people surprised. Tom Hartley, one of the top high-end car dealers in the U.K., will be offering a 12-month coverage that is expected to cost £10,000, which is around $12,300.
The Bugatti Veyron is considered as one of the most expensive there is with Warrantywise pegging its value in the vicinity of £2 million, about $2.47 million using prevailing exchange rates. What Warrantywise will be offering is a £10k Platinum Plus warranty, part of which contains unlimited claims going as high as the actual value of the car. This is excellent news for owners as this means they can avail of repairs amounting to £2 million. By repairs, this means, among others, wear and tear, car hire, and roadside assistance.
That’s not all as the warranty being offered also covers both electrical and mechanical parts. These include the radiators, wiring looms, gaskets, air-conditioning, drive belts, labor rates, and oil seals, to name a few. To put into perspective just how excellent this offer is, consider the fact that the Bugatti Veyron has an 8.0-liter W16 engine with 4 turbochargers and 10 radiators.
Warrantywise CEO Lawrence Whittaker shared that the costs of repair and servicing are generally high and likely will reach tens of thousands. With this warranty, he added, the company hopes to offer not only Tom Hartley, but also owners of the Veyron, with the best possible coverage there is to ensure that no unexpected bills come their way. The company has a long experience when it comes to offering coverage for many vehicles from the Ford and all the way to the Ferrari, he continued. This warranty for the Bugatti Veyron is its best yet, Whittaker concluded.
Though designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group, the Veyron is manufactured by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S at its facility located in Molsheim, France. The actual design was headed by Hartmut Warkuss though the exterior was the work of Jozef Kabaň. Engineering work was performed under the watchful eyes of engineering chief Wolfgang Schreiber.
The first version of the Veyron clocked in a maximum speed of 253 mph (407 km/h) with the Super Sport variant displaying a top speed of 267 mph (430 km/h). Meanwhile the Grand Sport Vitesse could reach speeds of 254 mph (408 km/h). Top Gear had named the Bugatti Veyron as “Car of the Decade” from 2000-2009. The standard version was even named by the same as the 2005 Best Car Driven All Year. While a new version was expected to be released in 2016, it was projected to have performance similar to the Super Sport but not better. However when the Gran Turismo 6 showed a powerful in-game version of the Super Sport known as the Bugatti Vision, the brand made sure to come up with a concept and sure enough this was unveiled during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
