An example of the biblically powerful and epically fast Bugatti Veyron is up for grabs on eBay Motors, selling out of Frankfurt, Germany. With bidding starting at $1,675,000 and a Buy-It-Now price at $1,680,000 – a hefty markup over MSRP – it should come as no surprise that the supercar has yet to find a buyer.

This particular Veyron is listed as Silver in color, presumably the dark and light silver two-tone popular on the car, though oddly no pictures on the listing show the exterior of the car, aside from two shots of the unmistakable Veyron shape under a blue car cover.

The car is registered and offered in Germany, but Porsche specialist Gemballa will take care of the importation to North America should an American buyer manage to cough up the astronomical asking price.

Props on the tip, Sasha!

      I'll be hearing different from you if ever Mercedes, Ferrari, or Lamborghini decides to make one, I bet money on it.

      Fanboys... so predictable. :)

      Even under cover, it's a hideous car.

      What's so great about this bloated pig of a car anyway? If you look at Gordon Murray's take on it in a recent Motor Trend, he basically calls it a lard bucket.

      I will be following this auction to see what happens, but almost certainly even if it is sold it will be off of eBay. Can you imaging the commission eBay will get for the sale.

      I'll be expecting this under my tree. Thanks.

      #9 As a rough rule of thumb, with a petrol engine you need about the same amount of cooling power as the engine puts out as usable power (about 30% efficiency, the rest is heat - you get rid of half of that heat through the exhaust leaving the remainder to the cooling system). Nothing extraordinary at all about the Veyron in this respect, just at a larger scale.

      I've had the luck to see it twice on the road yet. Pictures don't even begin to do it justice, it's got an unbelievable presence. If this thing can't impress you I don't know which car will (and this is from a diehard McLaren F1 fan).

      Like anyone in their right mind would bid on a car cover that looks like something. Right!

      Nick R- You're kidding me right? Read a real review:

      and then watch the episode (there's 4 parts on youtube):

      Can anyone say RIP-OFF?

      #15, I didn't mean to imply it's not a fantastic dream car, it is. It's also a fantastic feat of engineering. It's just pushed too far though. So much power in a car just can't work reliably. What was it Clarkson said? 16 radiators? If I was driving from Turin to London I'd love to drive that thing, but only if I had 5 cars as backup crew (and no doubt an engineer from Bugatti there too). Gimme Ferraris and Lambos and BMW M cars anyday for the real world though.
