If you think thats bad have a look at what it costs to own one and i don't mean the price...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsKDGdcb6BQ

That said Veyron's have a reputation for being just the same insane servicing costs, so might just be a hypercar thing.

Are you allowed to put fuel in an F1 ? I don’t think you are allowed to do anything else.
Kindest regards
