• Weirdest trade ever: Bugatti Veyron for a Corvette ZR1

Imagine you’re an auto dealer, bored like hell in a day with no customers. And suddenly there’s this guy entering your dealership and telling you this: "I will give you my Bugatti Veyron if you give me in exchange a Corvette ZR1!" What will you do?

And this is no fairy tail, it happened for real to All American Chevrolet of Midland, Texas. They gave a $107,000 ZR1 for a 2008 Bugatti Veyron with just 20,307 miles. You have to known that a used Veyron can go from $1.4 to $3.6 million depending on condition.

There are no details on this trade, but we are very curious about what really happened in there. So, if you have details on this let us know!

Why is it that a lot of people are getting rid of the Bugatti Veyron? I have seen a lot of it being sold by owners for almost 1/3 of the price slashed and now this trade? Are there any problems or issues with the car that we don’t know of?

I wouldn’t be surprised if there is something wrong with the car. The Veyron’s motor is two of VW’s 4.0 liter V8s joined together at the center, and the VW 4.0 V8 isn’t exactly the most reliable engine around. Same goes for the ZR1’s, though, so if that’s why he got rid of it he’s an idiot. Maybe he heard that the ZR1 had a faster Nurburgring time and got upset that a car 1/20th of his Veyron’s $2.1 million sticker could beat it. News flash for this guy: the ZR1 did not lap the Nurburgring as fast as GM said; they didn’t start the timer until 18 seconds into the run. Or maybe he just did it so it would make news on sites like this.

OBVS its gonna be more practical... thats besides the point. So you gonna sell me the veyron for the price of the Zr1?? I dont know many people in texas that are gonna shell out 1Mil. for that.. Maybe 110. to be generous?

i consider myself the number 1 corvette fan on this planet but even i wouldn’t do it .
The only explanation is that there is something wrong with the car it could even be the FAMOUS lake crashed veyron.

I think I know why this guy would do such a crazy thing. The bugatti is a practical car to drive on the streets. Especially in texas, I know cuz I was stationed there. You can’t use the bugatti to it’s fullest there. But with a ZR1, you can. You will actually have people that would want to race instead of stand down and you never be able to race anyone cuz every one knows that they would not win agianst a bugatti. But in the ZR1 it is more practical to drive on the streets there.

yup that was weird, swapping a whopping $1.3 Bugatti to a $17 is really unfair.. but i guess the bugatti’s owner does craving for a Zr1.
