Veyron Crash

"An example of the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron was involved in a road accident in Surrey on Sunday afternoon, March 4.

The unnamed driver is said to have lost control of the 1000bhp, 253mph supercar when it hit a patch of standing water on the B375 near Shepperton. The four-wheel drive Veyron then aquaplaned and crashed nose first into a ditch by the side of the road. It is not known whether any other vehicles were involved although Surrey Police have no record of the accident, suggesting the driver arranged himself for the car to be recovered. Doubtless the embarrassed owner is lying low and contemplating the sort of repair bill only a wrecked £800,000 supercar can create.

The images were captured by a member of the EvoTechnik.net website."

Ouch! That's gotta hurt anyone's wallet, don't care how filthy rich you are to start with.

Is this the first recorded incident of someone binning their Veyron? Not a very nice record for that guy to have acheived if so!

I reckon that after the facelift the looks have been significantly improved...

No! I suppose it was only a matter of time, I know the debate will be sparked but I am glad that it was being driven.

Keep in mind; We don't know that he was being reckless at the time of the accident.

If a 1.8T/TFSI a 1.9TDI a 2.0TFSI AND a 2.0TDI had a race, what would be the outcome?

A tremendous amount of slow. We need to make this race faster.

if a 1.8T/TFSI, a 1.9TDI, a 2.0TFSI, a 2.0TDI, AND a LS7 had a race, what would be the outcome.
