Brawn GP driver puts his Bugatti Veyron up for sale again after clinching title
22 October 2009

Formula One world championship leader Jenson Button has put his Bugatti Veyron up for sale again. The asking price is £899,995.

The all-black 2008 Veyron has just 1500 miles on the odometer and its 253mph top speed is 33mph faster than Button’s Brawn GP F1 car.

It was put up for sale earlier this year but there were no buyers. Now, following his world title success, Button has put the car up for sale again.

In the past, the Briton has owned cars including a Ferrari F430 Spider, Ferrari 360, Ferrari 550 Maranello, Ford GT and a Porsche Carrera GT.

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

Well, that's monster isn't a proper 'high-performance car'.

I suppose Jenson has to make up for the voluntary pay cut he took, racing for Brawn.

But would STILL be beaten on British B roads by a lime green RS Focus.

yep

just shows power isnt everything :)

I bet it would be beaten on a B road by any sales rep in any Ford Focus!

Trouble is with these lovely cars, you can't easily use their performance on the road.

When was the last time you saw a supercar "going for it"?

They become expensive toys.

What kind of dealer sells classic Minis and Bugatti Veyron's??

14 August 2009

He is selling because;

a) It is rubbish,

or

b) because he spilt a pint of milk in it and it gets a bit whiffy in the warm...but no-one will tell you that.

and they in turn would be "smoked" by any white fiat doblo or citroen berlingo van.
