私人飞机和豪华跑车谁更烧钱?

Which would you rather own for a year: a private jet or a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport?

如果都可以开一年,你愿意开私人飞机,还是布加迪威龙的“Grand Sport”跑车?

Most might say the jet, since it is much more expensive than Bugatti, a car that retails for a mere $2,128,230. After all, despite its top speed of 253 miles an hour, the Veyron won't get you to Paris.

多数人可能会选择私人飞机,因为它比零售价2,128,230美元的布加迪威龙跑车贵多了。而且,虽然这款跑车最高时速达253英里,但你无法把它开到巴黎去。

Now one reviewer says the cost of owning a Veyron may approach $300,000 a year-a sum one blogger said may be akin to running a private jet.

一位测评人士说,一辆威龙跑车一年的保有费用可能接近30万美元。一位博客写手说,这可能跟开私人飞机差不多。

The costs include:

各种成本包括:

• $10,000 tires, which the manufacturer recommends changing every 2,500 miles

─ 1万美元的轮胎,生产商建议每开2,500英里就要换一次。

• $60,000 for changing the wheels with every three tire changes.

─ 每换三次轮胎就要换一次车轮,花费6万美元。

• Scheduled maintenance, insurance for a 40-year-old male with a clean driving record, fuel (around 8 MPG in the city, 14 MPG on the highway).

─ 定期保养费用,没有不良驾驶记录的40岁男性车主的保险,燃料(市区8英里/加仑,高速公路14英里/加仑)。

Add in other assorted costs and the total approaches $300,000.

加上其他杂七杂八的费用,总数接近30万美元。

Running the car is so expensive that, according to a blogger on Autocar, one Veyronite loads his car on a trailer for long trips and follows behind on a private jet. The arrangement "works out to be cheaper than driving the Bugatti several hundred miles to reach the dream Tarmac."

Autocar网站上的一位博主介绍说,由于开跑车太贵,一位威龙车主在远程旅行时会让人用拖车把跑车运到目的地,然后自己坐着私人飞机过去。这一安排“证明要比开着跑车奔驰数百英里过去更省”。

A midsize private jet, meantime, can cost $2,200 to $2,700 an hour--including catering, fuel, pilots and maintenance. Some jet-management companies put the expense of all the operations at $200,000 a year or less. (Of course, those per-hour trip costs don't include the purchase price nor depreciation.)

与此同时,一架中型私人飞机的每小时成本在2200到2700美元,包括餐饮、燃料、驾驶员和保养。如果委托一些飞机管理公司,所有这些运营费用一年只有20万美元或更少。(当年,这里说的每小时旅行成本并不包括购机价,也不包括折旧费。)

Perhaps on a per-mile basis, the jet is more efficient. But what about annually? Do you think a jet is cheaper than a Veyron to run?

如果按单位旅程计算,飞机是要更划算一些。但如果看年度费用呢?你觉得开飞机是不是比开威龙跑车更便宜?
