Finding Bugatti Veyron Parts Isn’t Just Expensive, It’s Also Complicated

The last time we covered Crosta’s rebuild of the Veyron, we touched upon just how expensive some of the parts can be. For example, Bugatti wanted $16,000 for a Ricardo-built gearbox ECU. His solution? Leave a broken unit with a local computer repair shop and hope for the best.

That’s just touching the surface. In his latest video, Crosta not only talks about the cost of some of the parts but also just how tricky they are to find.

In the case of the exhaust manifold gaskets, Bugatti said they were unable to supply Crosta with them, and an attempt to go to the supplier directly bore no fruit. Fortunately for the rebuild, Bugatti relented and was able to supply them with the new turbos.

Granted, it adds to a pretty hefty parts bill. Crosta doesn’t state the exact cost but says his order was “the largest order a Bugatti dealer has ever seen” and stresses he’s keen to avoid adding to it as it “almost becomes not feasible” to rebuild the Veyron.

Not content with just fixing the car, though, a purple respray is underway, and he’s hinted at commissioning new bodywork to “modernize” the Veyron. We’ll be keen to see just how exactly that turns out.

It was reported House could serve up to 20 years in prison for the stunt, although he ended up only serving just nine months.

For the Veyron, though, it’s been a much longer sentence in purgatory. A dealer had originally taken advantage of the car’s clean title, secured a $1,000,000 loan and bought it – however, he went bankrupt with the Veyron then repossessed by the bank.

It emerged again in 2019, listed for $300,000 in a disassembled state, eventually winding up in the hands of Crosta. The plan from the start was to rebuild the car, but it’s taken a long time for any progress to emerge. At least now, things look to be ticking along nicely.
