The high price is enough to purchase two of the real cars, which are owned by celebrities including Simon Cowell. The very limited edition models - only three will be made - are the creation of the Liverpool-based designer Stuart Hughes and the Swiss luxury model car maker Robert Gulpen. It comes with working doors, bonnet and, reportedly, steering.
Under the bonnet will be a tiny version of the 16-cylinder 'W' engine, which drives the real car to almost 254mph. The model is called the Bugatti Veyron Diamond Ltd Edition. The full-size version is named after Pierre Veyron, the French Le Mans winner, who drove for Bugatti.
