Most valuable car collection ever auctioned

2012 Bugatti Veyron

2012 bugatti veyron
  • Estimated value: $2.5 million to $3 million

This 1,200 horsepower car, powered by a 16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers, is number 300 of the 300 Veyron coupes built. (The first built, a 2006 Veyron, is also for sale as part of this collection.) It has a top speed of 285 miles per hour. At that speed, this car would drain its gas tank dry in 10 minutes. It's just as well, though, since the tires, which ordinarily can be expected to go 10,000 miles, could be expected to last only 15 minutes at top speed. This car comes with a two-year warranty and, for the winning bidder, Bugatti will provide a new set of tires free of charge when needed. That's no small thing, either. A full tire change on the Bugatti Veyron costs over $100,000.
