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

Yep, you heard that right. 

Most people know the upfront cost of a Bugatti – and it’s a lot – but do you know what it costs to maintain one?

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

“Let me give you a little insight, it’s not pretty,” he said. 

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

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. 

“The sad part for me, is I’ve got more than one Bugatti,” he said.

“I’m starting to wonder, ‘wait a minute, do I really need three Bugattis?’ that’s a lot of money.” 

After less than a second of consideration, Khoshbin dismissed his concerns, saying “there’s nothing like owning a driving a Bugatti, and to be fair, all three Bugattis are completely different”.
