Can't Afford A Veyron? This Desk Is The Next Best Thing

May 20, 2011

There’s more to owning a Bugatti Veyron than the multi-million dollar price of purchase. Autoblog once reported that the tires, which cost $30,000 for a set of four, need to be replaced every 2,500 miles. An annual major service will cost about $20,000, and the Veyron isn’t known for being fuel-efficient, either.  If you have a passion for the historic French brand, but can’t afford to put a Veyron in your garage, may we recommend a computer desk inspired by Bugatti and crafted by the furniture artisans at Luzzo?

At a price of $240,000, the desk isn’t inexpensive, but annual upkeep should be affordable even for those of us light of wallet. The desk pays homage to classic Bugatti racers, and the blue color scheme is a tribute to the Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix car, perhaps the most successful competition car ever built by Bugatti. As you’d expect from Luzzo, the frame is polished aluminum and the drawers are self-closing. Included in the purchase price is a retractable display, which is really an Apple iMac computer.

Only ten examples will be built, which makes the desk even more exclusive than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Each copy gets a numbered serial plate and a build history, signed by each member of the build team. Unlike an actual Bugatti Type 35, the desk probably won’t appreciate in value over the years, and you can’t use it for vintage racing competition. On the plus side, however, it will be far less expensive to insure.
