How much for a Bugatti Veyron warranty? A mere £10,000

Specialist cover for the W16 hypercar rolls into five figures

If value is a relative concept, then few things can be considered quite as good value as a £10,000 warranty on a £2million Bugatti Veyron.

At half a per cent of the car’s value, it’d also be small change for the eventual owner – if that owner was even paying at all, since Tom Hartley will offer the car with the Platinum Plus warranty included.

That is, until the Bugatti Chiron arrives. It’ll be some time before those fall out of official coverage, but when it does – being even more advanced than the Veyron it replaces – it’s sure to get aftermarket warranty firms hot under the collar…
