First World Problems: Bugatti Wants to Take Care of your Veyron For as Long as 15 Years
This is a God-send for Bugatti ownersby Kirby Garlitos, on
The price of buying a Bugatti Veyron will set you back at least $1.5 million, but the costs attached to owning one can run high too. An oil change, for example, will set you back $20,000. A new set of tires will hit you like a brick in the head at close to $50,000 per set. Add up the years you plan to own a Veyron, and you’re looking at maintenance costs that could reach around $400,000 to $500,000. Be thankful, then, that Bugatti is introducing a Loyalty Maintenance Program for the Veyron that will help reduce operating costs while maintaining the condition of your million-dollar supercar.
You can get that seal after your beloved supercar goes through a thorough inspection that includes testing and replacing parts
If you’re an owner of a Bugatti Veyron, this new program is a God-send for you. Not only does it help you maintain the condition of your supercar, it has the potential to help soften the blow of the operating costs attached to the Veyron. We know that these costs could get completely out of hand, so the measure of protection Bugatti is offering through its Loyalty Maintenance Program is a big deal.
Before you start jumping for joy, your Veyrons need to earn a Bugatti Certified seal. You can get that seal after your beloved supercar goes through a thorough inspection that includes testing and replacing parts, ranging from small mechanical bits like spark plugs to full-blown body panels. Updates are also included in the service. In the end, the Veyron receives a Bugatti Certified seal, and its warranty is extended.
In a statement, Franco Utzeri, head of Bugatti Certified and Financial Services, said that the new program is a major step for Bugatti and owners of the Veyron. “Our quality program has been significantly enhanced by the Loyalty Maintenance Program,” he said. “This means that our customer support has reached the high level of individualization that customers already learned to know and appreciate when they purchased their Bugatti. No other brand is as near to the customer as Bugatti – and that applies to the duration of ownership.“
Bugatti is offering several different maintenance packages so you can get the package that best suits your use of the supercar
Speaking of the duration, Bugatti is offering several different maintenance packages so you can get the package that best suits your use of the supercar. This includes an Extended Warranty Plus program that runs up to 15 years, something that no other automaker in the world offers. “Our customers use their Bugattis in very individual ways,” Chris Kelly, head of Bugatti Customer Service, said. “Many owners enjoy driving their car every day while others see it as an automotive work of art in their private collection. This means that individual customers have very different expectations of service. We can now meet these expectations much more effectively, in line with our customers’ wishes.”
Make no mistake, Bugatti’s new Loyalty Maintenance Program is as important to the automaker as it is to Veyron owners, especially when you consider how rare and valuable Veyrons are becoming. It’s important for the company to maintain premium physical, mechanical, and technical quality of its models. This is a natural step in accomplishing that goal.
