The Bugatti. Don’t we all wish we had such a car? Unfortunately, the average Joe can’t afford this gem because there aren’t many cars with the price tag like that of the Bugatti. The company’s Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse for example, is the fastest convertible in the world. It’s capable of going 254 mph and comes with a staggering price tag of $2.35 million.
Despite its incredibly expensive price tag, the Bugatti is a popular choice among celebrities and other extremely wealthy people. Bugattis are owned by actors, athletes, musicians, real estate moguls and whoever else can afford one. Celebrities also drop extra cash to have their Bugatti customized with whatever they can think of that nobody else likely has. Here is a look at 13 of the most expensive Bugattis ever sold:
10. Simon Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron – $1.7 Million:
Simon Cowell, the ex judge of American Idol, paid $1.7 million for his Bugatti Veyron. Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron can reach speeds of 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds. Once up to 60 mph, the car can be revved up to a frightening 267 mph. Cowell would often cop an attitude on American Idol, but when he was behind the wheel of his Bugatti Veyron, Cowell was all smiles.
In early 2014, Cowell sold his Bugatti using the car auction specialist Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. He took a loss on the car, but we don’t think it hurt him too much, because he also owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Ferrari.
9. The Game’s Bugatti Veyron 16.4 – $1.7 Million:
Rapper and reality star The Game pampered himself with a really expensive 33rd birthday present. He spent $1.7 million on a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 sports car. He also put down another $2.4 million for special features. The car can reach speeds of 267 miles per hour.
The Game purchased a yellow and black version of the expensive sports car. Of course when you buy one of these beauties, the whole world has to know. After sharing a picture of his Bugatti on Twitter, he said “#BugattiBdayBoy“ pull up to the scene & my ceiling……. Aint missing ! Ha ha ha”
