Jenson Button’s 250mph Bugatti Veyron up for sale – a snip at ??899,995

The Bugatti Veyron Jenson Button is selling for almost ??900,000

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 ??900,000 ($1.48m / ??1.04m).

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)
Power: 1,001bhp
Torque: 922lb/ft
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.

    I’ve always wondered what the appeal is of this glorified Italian Audi Supercar is. I mean we had the Dodge a few years ago which was pretty, I mean very ugly but this thing takes the cake IMHO. On the other hand the latest list of the Top Ten Supercars has some genuine stunners and also dethrones the Butt-ugly, I mean Bugatti, as the fastest, at around a third of the price.

    Here’s the link:

    For what it’s worth. I would rather a SSC Ultimate Aero and Koenigsegg CCX and a SLK 55 AMG (to go shopping in etc) for the price of one Bugatti, and still have change for a 4WD and a boat!!
