MSRP is 3.2 million dollars so in California or Illinois, it will cost you another $320,000 to buy and register the car.
The whole set of tires is $32,000 – no wheels. If you want to replace the tires more than three tires – as Bugatti recommends – you need to replace the wheels which costs $120,000. Why do you need to replace the wheels? The tires are glued to the wheels.

$30,000 a year for service as it’s recommended by Bugatti. The oil change costs $20,000. The automaker offers a maintenance program – no tires replacement – at 50,000 Euros and Bugatti will cover the service for three years.
When you look at these things, owning a BMW doesn’t sound so bad afterall.
