The Bugatti Veyron: is it good value for money?
The Bugatti Veyron is an example of the super car gone overboard. It is both the most expensive and the fastest car that you can buy. In reality the level of performance is outrageous; nobody needs a car that goes four hundred kilometres per hour. That being said there are plenty of people who are willing to pay the money to buy one. While value is largely in the eye of the buyer it does have to be asked if the Bugatti Veyron is good value for the money?
It is hard to argue that the Bugatti Veyron is good value for the money. It is after all the most expensive car currently available with a price tag approaching two million dollars. While there is no doubting that it is a very good car it would be nearly impossible for a vehicle that expensive to a good value. It is a luxury item and whether or not it is worth the price is going to depend on the opinion of the buyer. If you have the money to buy one you probably aren’t too concerned about price anyway.
Besides being the most expensive car that you can buy the other claim to fame of the Bugatti Veyron is that it is also the world’s fastest production car. This obviously appeals to a lot of people. Although why you would need a car capable of more than four hundred kilometers per hour is another question altogether. The main reason that the car is so fast, and so expensive for that matter is the engine. It comes with an eight liter W16 engine, that is four blocks of four cylinders. It is capable of more than a thousand horse power. Hardly the car you would use to drive the kids to soccer practice.
Of course one of the reasons that you would want to have a car like the Bugatti Veyron is the exclusivity factor. You can be pretty sure that none of the neighbors will have one. Since the car went into production fewer than five hundred have been produced. This rarity is a big part of what gives the car its value. In this sense it might be worth the money. Given the small production numbers there is a possibility that your car will actually increase in value over time.
The decision as to whether or not the Bugatti Veyron is a good value for the money is going to be a personal one. After all for some people being seen a car like that is worth the two million dollar price tag. Everybody has a different opinion of value. If you can afford one it is entirely up to you if it is worth the price. Clearly you are paying for the rarity of the car because while the performance is great it far exceeds what anybody could possibly need…
