When one is lucky enough to cross his path with such an exclusive and expensive car – close to three million euros – like the Bugatti Chiron, he probably does not wonder every how many kilometers he will have to change the oil, what its annual maintenance costs or replace a taillight. I also don’t think that’s one of the biggest concerns of a Bugatti owner. Especially if your average client, as the former President of Bugatti recounted, continues to respond to that of a driver who has 84 cars, 3 private planes and a yacht.

Keeping to this profile, and to the exclusivity of a Bugatti, the cost of the actual maintenance of a Bugatti Chiron probably does not seem so expensive to us. Although it is. Despite the fact that an annual maintenance – to replace filters and oil – costs practically what some semi-new cars and a more complete maintenance, which we will have to carry out in the fourth year, costs as much as many sports cars.

Is it as expensive to maintain a Bugatti Chiron as we imagined? Yes it is.

Especially if we take into account that the annual maintenance of a Bugatti Chiron costs 11,500 dollars (from now on we will give you figures in euros, in this case they are 10,624 euros) and the maintenance of the fourth year amounts to 31,410 euros.

Bugatti offers a four-year maintenance pack with a single payment of between 55,000 and 65,000 euros, which compensates with these prices, or a warranty extension to resolve any fault of 188,460 euros.
