The cheapest Bugatti Chiron had a starting price of up to $2.6 million when it first launched. In the used car market today, an unmodified Bugatti Chiron is worth around USD 4 million. If you buy a new or limited edition, the price can go up to USD 6-7 million.
But this is only the initial amount to spend.
One area that should be carefully considered is the cost of maintenance. The new Bugatti Chiron comes with a 4-year warranty with unlimited kilometres. After the expiration date, the car owner will decide whether to buy an extension or pay for each maintenance.
If you buy the 4-year Passport Tranquilité package, it will cost you USD 204,000. This amount is enough to buy a high-end Porsche 911, Mercedes-Maybach S or Aston Martin DBX707 (at US market price). And if you pay for each maintenance individually, the numbers are huge.
Routine Maintenance of Bugatti Chiron
A one year routine inspection of Bugatti Chiron costs USD 11,500. If road conditions permit, a skilled mechanic will check any potentially faulty parts while driving the vehicle at speeds above 402 km/h.
Bugatti recommends changing the oil on the 16-cylinder, twin-turbo, 8.0L engine block every 14 months or 16,000 km. Each change, including oil drain, coolant, filter and the recommended Castrol Edge 10W-60 oil, costs $22,000, which is enough to buy a Toyota Corolla or a Kia Seltos in the US.
Replacing any part of the Bugatti Chiron is also very expensive. For example, the cost of LED tail light is up to 10,000 USD, the cost of remote key is 13,500 USD
Tyres, Wheels & Brakes Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron has a top speed of over 400 km/h, weighs almost as much as a mid-size SUV. That’s why the tire should also be of a special type. Compared to the Veyron, the Chiron’s cake has more options and the price has also become much “softer”. The “soft” here is around 7,200 USD. That’s the price of a standard run-flat Michelin Pilot Sport PAX (multi-season) or Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 XL (summer tire). The special edition with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R TR costs US$38,000
Bugatti recommends that car owners should change the wheels every 16,000 km. The cost for the most “standard” variant is 45,000 USD.
Replacing new brakes costs a lot: front wheel carbon ceramic rotor $45,000, front wheel 3D printed titanium brake pads $8,100 (rear wheel could be a bit cheaper), brake fluid, cleaning and other parts replacement cost an additional $54,000
Other long term maintenance and repair
Like the Veyron, the Bugatti Chiron has 10 radiators to cool the 8.0L 16-cylinder “monster”. This cooler needs to be replaced after 3-4 years of use, it costs around $19,800
The engine turbocharger costs $23,400. Engine tuning cost $26,000. The most expensive is the gearbox, which costs $185,000 to replace. The all-new, 8.0-liter, twin-turbo W16 engine cost $856,000 in total, about a third of the price of the new standard Chiron.
Some other parts also have a notable cost. Windshield 54,000 USD. Viper $3,400
The cheapest new paint is $49,000. With such brilliant paint, Bugatti recommends not washing cars automatically
In short, to enjoy a car like the Bugatti Chiron, which is both a monster of speed and a luxurious interior paradise like a miniature penthouse, the owner will have to spend a proportionate amount. It’s understandable, but good things are rarely cheap. If you want to be “cheap”, there’s a $204,000 service package for the 4-year warranty, although that’s still the price of a new super luxury car.
