Supercars are magnificent in every aspect. Mind-blowing performance coupled with desirably good looks and the envy of many.

The Bugatti Veyron is one such car boasting power figures from 736 to 880kW from its quad-turbocharged engine setup.

Not easy work

According to Road and Track, mechanical parts on a Bugatti can range anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars for a small sensor to several thousands for a completely new fuel tank.

Supercars are meant to be driven fast so naturally, things like oil services and brake pads will need to be replaced more often.

It makes sense why celebrities own these cars because it could cost as much as a house just to change the brakes.
