Jenson Button’s taste in road cars reveals an appetite for machnes almost as quick as his Brawn BGP001: this is his 250mph Bugatti Veyron, up for sale on Auto Trader.
It has just 1,500 miles on the clock – and if you want to sample nought to 62mph in 2.5 seconds you’ll have to part with the best part of ?é?ú900,000 ($1.48m / ?óÔÇÜ?¼1.04m).
Petrolheads are well-acquainted with the Veyron’s vitals, but here they are again for the record:
Engine: 8-litre W16 (not W12 as listed on the advert)
Transmission: 7-speed DSG
0-62mph: 2.5 seconds
0-99mph: 5.5 seconds
Top speed: 253mph (408kph)
The Veyron’s top speed exceeds the maximum hit by an F1 car – 246mph (397kph) achieved by Honda at Bonneville in 2006.
Button’s is one of just 200 Veyrons that were built by Bugatti owners Volkswagen AG.
His garage is the stuff of dreams – he also owns a Mercedes C63 AMG, Mercedes CLK DTM AMG, Ferrari Enzo, Audi RS6 Avant and BMW M5.
He has previously owned a Ferrari F430 Spider, Ferrari 360, Ferrari 550 Maranello, Ford GT and Porsche Carrera GT.
Another F1 driver to sell a car on Auto Trader is Nelson Piquet Jnr, who sold his BMW X5 in June.
