Sounds like it would spend so much time in the shop, you should buy two.
Have you shopped at August Luxury Motorcars?
I'd just park it in my yard and pretend .
My brother drove his friend's Type 35 on the original Watkins Glen road course at a vintage event.
You can get a Ford GT for less than $2m
and still do 300mph on straight away.
Such a deal.
I looked, and couldn't find any evidence of a retail workshop manual for the Veyron, but I did find this:
The Type 35 is the race car that has reputedly won the greatest number of races of all race cars all around the world : more than 2000 victories, from 1924 to 1931, a performance still unrivalled today.
And yes, they were French-made... How things have changed since !
Yay, Dan German!!!
With the demise of Saab Cars, I am often reminded of how much "slop" there is in the costs to manufacture and distribute replacement bits. With a fleet of these sedans (and a wagon) I order large caches of stuff and have to work to keep the shipping in sensible proportion to the ridiculously low per piece costs or these parts. Buy ten magnetic drain plugs, buy 40 spark plugs, buy 4 alternator shields; buy 8 cabin air filters - or the shipping cost may exceed the parts cost.
I recently ordered, paid for and received enough Bosch premium rear brake pad sets for four of these Saab 9-5s, and I installed 3 of those 4 sets, one to the '01 Aero, one to the '04 Arc, and one to the '06 wagon (all done the same day). My cost, for all four sets of pads? Forty eight dollars. ($ 48)
I remember what I used to pay, when only the dealer had stuff, and I was shocked, yeah. Now, I'm shocked that the cost per could be so tiny.
I think I’ll hold out for a Royale
Well, I'm sure all the same principles apply, lol!
I remember a Car & Driver article from the 80s on the Lamborghini Countach that described the rear spoiler as a $4000 option. The writer added that you could save $10 by putting a Fiat on the back! (The Fiat in question was also written about in the same issue, making it relevant and funny...)
I think there are some custom color options for the Porsche 911 that cost as much as a Chevy Spark.
I was ready to pull the trigger on one but, I found a fixer-upper '72 Pinto that caught my eye.
But, I was this close!
Reminds me of the Volvo ad from back in the day:
