Man Trades In Bugatti Veyron For Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Follow Viknesh

You’d never expect to see a Bugatti Veyron sitting in the used car lot of a Chevrolet dealership but that’s exactly what happened at All American Chevrolet in Midland, Texas. The circumstances surrounding the bizarre occurrence are not exactly clear but allegedly a man by the name of Carlton Beal Jr. traded in his Veyron, estimated to be worth around $1.6 million, for a brand new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, which costs a little over $100 grand.

The Veyron was a 2008 model finished in a two-tone black and red color scheme similar to the one pictured and only had 2,307 miles on the odometer. It was traded in for a black Corvette ZR1 that was sitting in inventory.

Beal runs a privately held petroleum and natural gas company, also in Midland, and has previously owned a Lamborghini Diablo and McLaren F1 so it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about supercar ownership.

Perhaps it was an investment gone bad or an extreme act of patriotism but whatever it was Beal must have had a good reason for the trade. No details surrounding the deal have been revealed.

Incidentally, the Corvette ZR1 runs a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 205 mph. The Bugatti Veyron packs a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine and takes just 2.4 seconds to reach 60 mph from rest and maxes out at 253 mph.
