Bugatti Veyron Owned By Simon Cowell: Is It Worth $1.65 Million?

Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is unquestionably one of the most stunning and expensive cars in the world. Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions™, announced that they will be selling none other that Simon Cowell’s 2008 Bugatti.

Cowell’s car is one of 1400 vehicles due to be sold at the 43rd Annual Scottsdale Auction. But there is no doubt his Bugatti is one of the most exclusive cars to be sold there.

The black Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is in immaculate condition, and is the first certified, pre-owned car in the new program that Bugatti are offering.

The car itself has a full one-year factory warranty, four new tires, a full service and, perhaps most importantly, only 1300 real miles on the clock. The fact that all of those miles were personally driven by Simon Cowell himself will no doubt just add to the charm of the car.

The car was custom made for Cowell and has black paint as well as a black interior, making it almost unique in America.

Boasting a massive 1000 horsepower and 6000 RPM, the all wheel drive model also has a 7-speed automated dual clutch transmission.

All of this power under the hood made this Bugatti Veyron the fastest legal street car in the states with a stomach-dropping top speed of just over 235 mph.

The chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson who is handling the auction said:

This is an impressive vehicle, the first certified, pre-owned Bugatti Veyron. We appreciate Mr. Cowell’s late entry and are excited to see the strong interest there will be in the chance to bid on such an exceptional vehicle. Celebrities have trusted Barrett-Jackson to handle the sales of their cars for decades and Mr. Cowell has followed suit.

It is thought that the car will fetch something in the region of $1.65 million at auction, a price considered to be fair for such a unique and special car. Do you think it’s worth the money? Share your thoughts in the comments feed below.

    Just because he owned it does not make it worth more, Its to much car for him!

    The car may be the fastest in the world but it looks like a pregnant guppy with the gulping nose it has. It would seem designers could do much better!

    waste of money

    another waste is buying a car, never driving it, then selling it. It's not like a classic that was bought dirt cheap then sold 20x it's price.

    Maybe that is one of the reasons you DON'T have 1.65 million..

    Some people are just too rich to care. Regardless of him driving twice of 4 years… #TooRichToCare

    It's not an automatic, it's an automated manual. With a 0-60 of 2.4 seconds, no human can shift fast enough. The reality is that a modern automated transmission can shift in a fraction of the time even the fastest humans can.

    Barrett Jackson sold a Veyron a few years back for around $650,000. I see disappointment for Simon.

    Charm is added because Simon Cowell owns the car? To whom would this add charm? Too crazy!

    There isn't any car in the world that's "worth" this much. If I was driving my 2012 Honda Accord and Simon Cowell was driving his Bugatti Veyron and we were both driving from one side of my tow to the other and drove the legally posted speed limits, we'd both arrive within minutes of each other!

    When I eventually found testimonies about this spell caster Dr. Book, how he helped people to get their lover back, i contacted him through his email address testimonytemple@gmail.com because I was absolutely desperate to get my husband back. Life without my husband was a real mess for me and my children. I wanted a dramatic change and I thought magic could be the solution. After discussing the resolution with Dr. Book, he gave me hope that he will restore my marriage. I felt confident that he will actually make my husband to return home and he did! It’s fantastic what Dr. Book have done for me. His help is priceless! I don't know what I would have done without Dr. Book, Dr. Book does his job so well he is organized and highly functional, i believe he is the best spell caster i can count on when it comes to love spell, I was floored that his spells worked Thanks!……Cindy
