Touted as the fastest production car of 2017, Bad Bunny’s Bugatti Chiron Sport is also one of the most expensive for a simple tire change. Slide and discover how much the Puerto Rican singer pays for this service.
The Geneva Motor Show was the ideal setting for the Bugatti Chiron Sport will appear before the world. Already in 2017 this car was considered the fastest production vehicle in the world thanks to its 490 kilometers per hour peak speed. Neither short nor lazy, It didn’t take long for Bad Bunny to add one to his private collection.
The price of this jewel from the French manufacturer reaches 3.5 million dollars, which makes it a prohibitive object for much of the world. As a result of this exclusivity, the maintenance and control of this Bugatti is not cheap either; furthermore, it takes a team of experts to carry out the tasks that pertain to this 8.0-litre W16-powered machine.
And it is that Bad Bunny must walk carefully on the asphalt to avoid any ‘puncture’. One of the most expensive maintenance of the Bugatti is precisely the change of its tires. The French manufacturer itself recommends changing the tires every 4,200 km, but in this case everything goes much further than a simple replacement.
The change, assembly, inflation and balancing of the tires of this particular Bugatti are carried out in the brand’s factories located in France. The tires travel by plane and in the European country a team of top professionals awaits them to carry out a task not suitable for beginners. This whole process takes around 29 thousand dollars… for a single tire!
In case Bad Bunny wants to replace the four, he would have to pay a whopping 116 thousand dollars. However, from Bugatti they also recommend replacing the wheels for every three tire changes, something that would increase the payment by about 56 thousand dollars. As a result of these exorbitant sums, the Puerto Rican interpreter is now more careful to avoid any ‘puncture’.
