Regular maintenance on a million dollar supercar can be quite expensive. If it’s a Bugatti, that’s a whole different ball game. Oil change on a Veyron costs as much as a base Ford Focus. Secondly, a Bugatti has to be shipped to the Atelier in Molsheim, France for service. To avoid the bills and the hassle, one brave Bugatti owner decided to do it himself.
Houston Crosta owns a Bugatti Veyron Mansory Vivere. Apparently, the car had sprung few leaks and since he was anyways taking it apart, the owner decided to do an oil change as well. The first challenge is to get the Veyron up on the lift. Then comes the difficult task of pulling off all the carbon fiber panels in order to access the engine bay. That’s because a Veyron doesn’t have a conventional engine cover. What’s the scary though is that these guys are doing it by trial and error, possibly without even a service manual.
Servicing a Bugatti in your own garage would most certainly affect its value. So, if you’re planning to make some cash the next time you sell it, this DIY job is not for you.
I just hope this Veyron isn’t missing any screws.
