There's no denying that the Bugatti Veyron is an awesome car. Experiencing acceleration more akin to a superbike than a 4,000 pound car is a religious experience. The price of a one is also likely to cause you to utter the name of a higher being. If you'd like to drive Bugatti's wheeled missile but can't swing the cost of ownership, and you happen to be in England, you can rent one instead. Of course, the 40 grand it costs for a single day in HVC Prestige's Veyron would also buy ypu an entire car that you won't have to park after just 50 miles (that works out to $800/mile, in case you were wondering).

That 50 miles might feel like quite a lot when you realize that during every minute you spend behind the wheel of this thing, you'll have sweaty palms, a dry mouth, and a severely elevated heart rate. HVC isn't messing around with joyriders, either. You must be 28 or older with a valid license for at least the last 5 years. There's that aforementioned mileage cap, as well as a $300,000 insurance deposit, too. If you find the terms or price for the Veyron to be a bit out of your budget, HVC Prestige has plenty of other cars you can take out as an alternative. We bet the HUMMER H2 doesn't cost $40 grand per day to wheel around in.

Thanks for the tip, Fogdoggydog!

      ROFLMAO!

      How do you know every minute will be sweaty-palmed, etc.? What if you get stuck in a traffic jam? That would suck.

      Hopefully their first customer will be THE STIG!

      Screw that! Not worth it.

      Like Strongbad said - I'd rather lease a 911 (or put a down payment on one).

      That's retarded. Exotic car rental prices are out of control. Maybe they intend it for use in movies and rap videos?

      In case you want to see Bugatti on the Autoban in the traffic... google: Porche GT vs Bugatti vs Yamaha. Its a video taken from the bike as the bugatti passes by and the chase begins - later GT joins the party. Dont forget to turn up the speakers. Recomend watching the shorter version: 2 min. Not to waste too much time.

      Well the price is aimed at people who are living in a financially different world. People who can honestly drop $40k on a 50-mile joy ride. If you can afford this, you probably already own a couple 911s.

      Still, it brings a smile to my face when I see that W16 behind the driver's seat. :)
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah but by that logic, those people can probably just buy a Veyron. Or at least an S7 :D.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Wow. Great deal.

      Not.

      $40 grand per day??? are they kidding? I'd rather just lease a Porsche 911.
