A new set of turbochargers for a Bugatti Veyron cost $42,000

That's almost as bad as its camshaft position sensors costing $7,200 when they're just $9 each for an ordinary VW...

Owning a Bugatti Veyron is never going to be a cheap and straightforward ownership experience. Instead, it is quite the opposite and it isn't for the fainthearted or stingy.

According to an EPA document Road & Track reported on, it costs an eye-watering $42,000 to replace a Veyron's turbochargers. Admittedly, the supercar is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W-16 engine – so you're getting four but even still.

But the worst part is, that isn't even the scariest bill. Some other costs that Road & Track revealed include $42,000 for a new fuel tank, $7,800 for a new intake manifold, $22,000 per exhaust manifold, $9,000 for a transmission computer, and $15,000 for oxygen sensors.

However, what's really shocking is that to replace all four camshaft position sensors that are shared with the Mark IV Jetta and Golf, making those sensors cost around $9 each for the Volkswagens, will set a Veyron owner back around $7,200 to replace all four.

It's a ludicrous amount of money to spend on maintaining a car, but when you own a car worth millions, do you really care about a $20,000 oil change?

Were you aware of the costs to run a Veyron?
