Listed for sale on eBay is the complete interior from a 2008 Veyron, and it has a Buy It Now Price of $149,999. According to the seller, all of the components were removed prior to the car's owner taking delivery. That's probably a separate story on its own, but the dealer notes the owner had the cockpit...

However, there's a reason for the odd mix as you'll find out below. The car is an open-top...
