Here's How To Perform A $21,000 Oil Change On A Bugatti Veyron

Oil changes on most modern engines are a piece of cake, but since Bugatti in the US charges $21,000 for the privilege, this guy and his mechanic did it themselves... with no special training

What do you do when your Veyron needs an oil change but your (ahem) local Bugatti dealer wants to lighten your wallet of $21,000 for the privilege? You do it yourself, of course.

No, wait, we don’t mean that. Attempting to change the oil on a Veyron’s quad-turbocharged W16 is surely asking for trouble. But the guys at Royalty Exotic Cars have just done exactly that with company owner Houston Crosta’s own Mansory Veyron.

The car looks suspiciously similar to the one that burned through its tyres in a Daily Driven Exotics video from three months ago… a car that Bugatti’s Los Angeles dealer reportedly refused to work on.

This pretty slow-moving video follows the whole process from lifting the car to draining the 15.6 litres (16.5 US quarts) of oil, including swapping out a few tired or damaged parts along the way. The hardest part was getting the bodywork off to complete work around the back and side of the engine, but the rest… well, it doesn’t seem to be that hard at all.

So there you go, all you budget-conscious or spanner-handy Veyron owners in the CT community. Save yourself some cash next time your service is due and whip the 16(!) drain plugs out yourself. Also, send us footage.

Buy Veyron that needs oil change. Change oil. Sell for $25,000 more than you bought it for.

I paid more for my Mtn bike than I did for my car. I also paid more for my bike rack than I did for my car. 😁

Don’t forget to the finger gun point, that’s the important $10,000 bit that makes it all work.

Thing is the service of the oil change isn’t just for oil, it’s to check the integrity of all parts too. And they probably put standard oil in it, which is dumb af. This car is made for ultra high speed and probably doesn’t use the same oil as a normal car. I’m sure they change differential oil and such too. Freaking yanks just f*cked this car

Oil is oil. There are natural and synthetic oils, but as long as it’s the right oil (i.e. 10w30) then it’s fine. And yes, the $21,000 is just an oil change. It’s ridiculous but they can get away with it because people don’t want to mess with the cars.
