Diecast Spotlight: 2010 Hot Auction Bugatti Veyron 2

As I was updating prices on the 2010 Hot Wheels Series, I came across an anomaly.  The Hot Auction Bugatti Veyron has been consistently selling for Super Treasure Hunt-like prices.  It has been found in two variations, a satin blue which has been selling for an average of $12.00 and the Wal-Mart exclusive satin red which has been going for an average of $20.00.

I haven’t seen a real good explanation yet for why this car is selling for so much but you can join the discussion here on our forum.

Maybe these were a short run, although some members of our forum report finding a few of them.  It could be a really popular casting or there could be a lot of speculation about the future value of this model.  Only time will tell if it can hold it’s value or possibly increase as some speculators are betting on.  One thing is sure, it’s been on the market for a few months and held it’s value well past the initial week or two of high demand that many new releases seem to go through.
