PostSubject: Bugatti Veyron Crashes Into Texas Lake   November 12th 2009, 10:07 am

UPDATE: From the Galveston Daily News:

The two-seater, with 16 cylinders and four turbo chargers, can reach speeds of more than 250 mph. New models sell for about $2 million.

The man, who refused to give his name, was looking at real estate in Galveston.

About 3 p.m. a low-flying pelican distracted him as he traveled north on Interstate 45 just south of the hurricane levee near Omega Bay.

The man jerked the wheel, dropped his cell phone, and the car's front tire left the frontage road and entered a muddy patch, which foiled his attempt to maneuver away from the lagoon.

The Veyron's powerful engine gurgled like an outboard motor for about 15 minutes before it died.




Not sure whats worse the fact that he let the car idle or the money of a two truck operator who came to pick it up. I guess he didn't know that those wheels cost about 25K each!

At least the tow truck operator washed his hands off in the muddy water before grabbing the steering wheel.

What Happened to the Video? Was it taken down out of embarrassment? Or Bugatti Flex it off.

Did you Guys know if you run a Veyron @ top speed on a full tank, by the time you run out (which is fast) you will also need new tires all around! I forgot why they said it was set up that way.
