Simon Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron went across the auction block last night at Barrett-Jackson fetching a $1.25 million not including the buyers fee which rounded the price up to $1.375 million. No word as to who the buyer is.
Video after the jump!
Barrett-Jackson will be kicking off it’s 2014 event starting today in Scottsdale Arizona. While we can expect the normal line-up of original high-dollar Mopars and muscle cars, Craig Jackson and the team at Barrett-Jackson have lined up quite the celebrity set of vehicles.
Lets start with Simon Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron. We’ve seen him a number of times in this vehicle and frankly speaking, I think he should be keeping this one. Unless he has a special variation Veyron on the way, I would hold on to this one. Perhaps we’ll see him bidding on his own car.
In keeping up with the all black motif, I’m very excited to see the Gas Monkey Ferrari F40 go across the block. Dennis Collins is no stranger to putting cars up for auction but based on the TV publicity from the TV show Fast N Loud, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see this thing take off!
Stay tuned for more celebrity car news from Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale!
How often do you see a 17 year old driving a Bugatti? Not that often. How often do you see a 17 year old driving a new Bugatti Veyron Vitesse? This is probably a first.
Kendall Jenner went to the the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo races with her dad, Bruce Jenner and somehow, someone thought it’d be a good idea to let her drive the Vitesse. Not that Kendall is a bad driver (she can’t be any worse than her sister Kylie who already crashed her G-Wagon) but still, a teenager driving this Bugatti is pretty crazy.
Check out the video below. It starts with a couple stills but then has video of Kendall driving the car.

Shout out to Awais for the tip!
If you recall back a couple of years ago, there was a story of a super loaded dude in Africa that had his little car collection seized. Well it turns out his cars were recently auctioned off and someone scooped up an Enzo, a Maserati MC12, a Ferrari 599 GTo, more than 1 Bugatti Veyron and a few other cars for a cool $4.4 million (USD). I’d like to say it sucks to be him but instead I will say that it sounds like he got what he deserved and I think he had a pretty nice life up to this time.
Last time it was Bijan’s Veyron, any guesses as to who owns this one?
