Bugatti Veyron – Click above for a high-res image gallery from our first drive

Not all of us have over a million to spend on a new car, otherwise we'd all be driving Bugatti Veyrons, right? Or at least most of us would. So how about $25,000 – that's a bit closer, right? Well now you can get your hands on a Veyron for just that amount. Unfortunately the twenty-five grand will only get you one day behind the wheel of the super-fast, super-expensive supercar.

Holders Vehicle Contracts, an exotic rental company in England, has got a Veyron on its hands that it's willing to rent out to anyone who can shell out the £16,000 (about $25k). Oh, and did we mention would-be renters will need to put down a $160,000 deposit? That's a little bit steeper than the typical contract down at the your local Hertz, but then that Chevrolet Impala or Ford Mustang convertible isn't going to get you up to 250 miles per hour, now is it?

      so it's only gonna cost me $185K to completely destroy a $1 million car? not a bad deal.. if I can't get it moving to 250 at least I can get it to do some summersaults on a track or hell a nice country road.. at not even half price!

      $25k to rent a McClaren F1, perhaps, a Veyron, no.

      To the people mentioning "If you had $25,000 to blow on a day then you could just buy one..."
      No, you are wrong! $25K is 52 times less then $1.3 million, that's like saying if you can afford to rent a Lambo at $2500 a day, you must have enough to just buy one. Not to mention, like mentioned earlier by BH, you can't just go down to your local Bugatti dealer and pick one up.

      Whew. If this was a permanent sale, I thought there would be a catch as big as the original price tag.
      One of my friends saw a 2007 Infiniti G sedan for sale on eBay sold for about $10000. As it turns out, the rear, sides, interior, and performance were completely fine, but the front was totally wrecked. That's the scenario I pictured when I read the headline.

      This must be the most unsafe offer I have ever heard! Enzochi makes the point, if you smash it up it costs you so much less... Go for the world's safest car instead!

      For 1500 pounds, I'll gladly take a Ferrari 599 GTB for the day. That is worth it.

      This Bug won't be able to take you to 250 unless they give you the "high speed key" with your rental....... like that's gonna happen.
      • 5 Years Ago
      How many do they have? I don't expect them to last any more than a month before they're all totaled.

      I can only begin to imagine what the rental agreement would look like.

      "Thank you for renting our prized Bugatti Veyron, you have made a great choice. Now, there are a few legal matters we must discuss. Let's call them the, 1001 things you cannot do with this Veyron:
      1. Go Fast
      .
      .
      .
      1001. For your safety and legal matters, we will not provide you with the special high speed key.

      Enjoy sucker.

      Ahh... but now they can use this in all the rap video's...
        • 5 Years Ago
        True on that note.

        BTW Leafs suck, that's five years in a row that they haven't made the playoffs!
        • 5 Years Ago
        I KNOW!!! believe me... you're not insulting me with the Leafs jokes.... We're so used to failure that it doesn't even phase us anymore....
        But good one though! +1 to LEAFS SUCK!

      Not worth it.. there's an exotic car rental service here in Florida that's much more "affordable". For $50k/yr you can pick from several cars (I could've sworn they had a bugatti.. maybe not) but they limit you to only a few hundred miles a month. Another company locally here is called Gotham Dream Cars, which have a Saleen S7, Murcielago (including an LP640), plenty of F430s and 360, 911 Turbos and Aston Martin...

      The S7 is just under $3k. Price-for-price MSRP it would be a mere $9-12k/day for a Veyron. *shrugs*

      Only car I would consider paying that much for a ride in would be a Porsche 917/30. I have owned motorcycles that beat the Bug handily to 180mph.
