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.
