I once saw a Triumph Spitfire done up like that. I was traumatized.
Many moons ago, I was a car salesman. I would bring a customer trade-in to the appraisal manager, and if it was a bit rough he’d say something like, “we’ll have to take that down to the scrapyard, and weigh it to see what it’s worth.”
You and I know it, but the people who pay $70k for a Chevy SUV with extra gizmos and a bigger badge don't.
This may have been mentioned already, if you do manage to take it up to top speed, you will have to replace the tyres, as the centrigugal force at these speeds is more than the tyres can take for more than about 10 mins. And the tyres are about 10k a set..
Edit, I missed the previous linking of the purposeful Veryon crash into lagoon. Never mind.
But if you've already done all those things, and still have plenty of funds, then would the Bugatti seem more reasonable?
Nah, I'll keep my Tacoma, thanks.
So!...you want a Bugatti Veyron/Chiron, do ya?
No : I want a Bugatti. Not a petro-dollar toy.
My preferred one is the little cute - nevertheless formidable - Type 13 "Brescia" :
But it's me, OK ?
I believe that if you have the tires shaved, that bumps the speed rating up a notch. Of course at $38,000 a set, that might make it worthwhile keeping the speeds down to 185mph.
A new set of tires on a Veyron will run you $40,000.
Well I'll be dipped in s**t...
We all will be - eventually.
Hopefully later than sooner
Can we combine this with the daily driver thead?
I've got a friend that dabbled in exotic cars in his youth, and out of boredom (like me) peruses ebay/CL and similar markets just to keep an eye on the market and he told me that if you watch/read the ads, most folks selling second hand Ferrari/Porsche/whatever exotics virtually all mention that the car has been 'recently serviced', which he says translates to "I just found out how much it costs to maintain this car, holy $#!t!!!" and that's why they're on the market.
I worked with an old Air force guy that did maintenance and he used to say if you opened up a panel and there wasn't some hydro fluid seeping out there was a problem and you had to find the leak.
Years ago my brother new a guy that had a MIG 15, I talked to him one day and he told me it burned about 400 gallons an hour. Once you add in the maintenance it became very expensive to fly.
They don't make them with a stick shift, that's the reason I'm not interested in owning one
I wondering what sort of wording I would need for a GoFundMe page?
Oh, c'mon! Just pick up the Chilton's manual, and do the maintenance yourself! Once you're saving yourself $50k/year, you'll be wondering what to do with all that extra money you have laying around now.
