Even with a 100-liter fuel tank, the Bugatti Veyron zips through gas at an astonishing rate

The fuel tank capacity of a Bugatti Veyron is 100 liters.

However, at full speed, the coveted supercar can drain the fuel tank in just 12 minutes.

That means, despite the initial cost of $1.9 million, they’re expensive to keep on the road, too.

Particularly if you’re going at speed.

At full speed, or 402 km/h (250 mph) to be precise, a run in the Veyron would only last 12 minutes before you would need to refuel – and would cost more than $42,000.

However, covering 6.78 kilometers (4.21 miles) a minute means you could get further than you think in that short but sharp window.

You would need 81.4 kilometers (50.6 miles) of road to keep your foot buried for 12 minutes.

But it’s not only the fuel you need to worry about.

The Veyron’s tires wouldn’t last either.

They’re only good enough for running at 250 mph for about 15 minutes.

After that, Bugatti would need to swap them for a new set, setting you back a whopping $42,000.

And, even its regular wear and tear is eye-wateringly expensive.

Real estate mogul and car collector Manny Khoshbin owns three Bugattis and previously revealed what he forks out each year to keep them

First up in the video, Khoshbin said Bugatti recommended the oil and all fluids be replaced annually. 

An oil change in a Bugatti Veyron costs more than most people’s cars.

For his Veyron, Khoshbin said this alone costs him $25,000. 

Why is it so expensive?

“Because a normal car has one drainage plug, but this car comes with 16 different drainage plugs, and guess what, they’re not easily accessible,” he said.

Khoshbin explained that to replace the fluids, a Bugatti technician had to remove the rear wheels, the rear brakes, the lining on the fenders, and the underneath lining of the car in order to access the 16 drainage plugs. 

“It doesn’t stop there, now we go to the tires,” he said. 

Khoshbin said the tires for his Veyron cost $38,000 to replace “and Bugatti recommends they be replaced every few years”. 

The tires weren’t even the worst of it. 

“The rims are the painful part,” he said.

The real estate entrepreneur said Bugatti recommended replacing the rims every 10,000 miles. 

And to do that, it would set you back another $50,000. 

So, that’s $25,000 a year for the oil and fluid change, $38,000 for tires every two to three years, and $50,000 for the rims. 

If you add that up, it totals well over $100,000. 

And be careful not to lose your keys – replacing them alone will set you back $13,547.75 to be exact.
