In Texas, USA, a local Chevrolet dealer didn’t know what happened to him when a customer came along with his Bugatti Veyron. That on itself doesn’t sound too spectacular, but when we tell you that the man came to the dealership to trade his Veyron for a Corvette ZR1, your thoughts might change. That is trading a $1.6 million car for a $100,000 car. The owner let the car at the dealership in exchange for the Corvette and some extra cash!
The Veyron coloured in a red-black combination only has 20,307 miles (32,490km) on the odometer. But lets compare both car’s sprint times from standstill to 62mph (100km/h), the Bugatti does the sprint in 2.4 seconds while the Corvette needs 3.3 seconds. When comparing the top speed of both cars we see that the Vette does 330km/h (205mph), which isn’t bad, but that doesn’t even come close to the Veyron’s 403km/h (253mph).
Also remarkable is that the man, who runs a petroleum company in Midland Texas, previously owned a Lamborghini Diablo and McLaren F1.
Maybe the man wanted a real American sports car?
