When you’re as rich as Simon Cowell, you can essentially afford any car on the planet 10 times over. Despite this, Cowell was recently spotted in a cheap Caterham sports car which took us all by surprise. Now however, the pride of Cowell’s exotic stable, his black Bugatti Veyron, is hitting the auction block in Scottsdale.
Cowell purchased his black Veyron new from Bugatti Beverly Hills in 2008 and in that time it has covered just 1,300 miles. The full black exterior and black interior also make this one of only a handful of black on black Veyrons in the United States and the entire world.
Additionally, when it hits the auction block, Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron will come with a full one-year, extended factory warranty as well as four brand new tyres!
It is currently unclear just how much the pristine Veyron will sell for, but it does have a reserve price.
As for the powerplant, it is the same as all ‘regular’ 16.4 Veyrons. That means it is an 8-liter W16 engine combining four turbochargers. This powertrain can crank out an incredible 987 hp which in the Super Sport and Vitesse models, is increased to 1200 hp. The engine is then mated to one of the world’s best 7-speed automated dual-clutch transmissions driving all four wheels and helping to rocket the car to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 253 mph!
