See :

We’ve seen plenty of smashed Ferrari Enzos but this is the first time we’ve across images of a wrecked Bugatti Veyron. Information is sketchy, but it’s thought that a pool of water on the road caused the AWD supercar to lose traction and then spin out of control, sending it head first into a ditch. Most of the cabin section and engine compartment look relatively undamaged, however, it’s hard to determine what internal damage to the drivetrain there is if any. Hopefully the driver got out unscathed.
According to the source, this is the first time a private customer has actually crashed a Veyron. Engineers reportedly destroyed two prototype examples during testing, which was part of the reason for the long delays during the vehicle’s development.

Indeed, it's a first Veyron broken by a private customer… and unfortunately certainly not the last. The structure seems ok, consequently I think that the driver must be it too. :roll:

Texas newspaper


$2 million Bugatti crashes into lagoon

By Chris Paschenko
The Daily News
Published November 12, 2009

LA MARQUE — The owner of one of the world’s fastest production automobiles accidentally drove his fine-tuned, French-built car into a saltwater lagoon Wednesday.

The man, who police said was from Lufkin, was uninjured after escaping the partially submerged Bugatti Veyron as it came to rest in about 2 feet of saltwater.

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.

Police and firefighters blocked the frontage road until MCH Towing employee Gilbert Harrison carefully wenched the car away from riprap and onto the soft, muddy bank.

It’s the rarest car in the world, not something you can just replace, the man said.

An Associated Press story in October mentioned a 2006 model Veyron for sale in Jonesboro, Ark., with an asking price of $1.25 million.

One of the prospective buyers was from Texas.

That Bugatti Veyron was one of only 200 made and one of only about 15 in the United States, the AP reported.

:shock:

Funny... It's the car I posted just yesterday in the 'register' topic that was for sale at Elite Autos (http://www.eliteautosllc.com), Jonesboro, Arkansas about a month ago...

Peace!

2 links on the front page. No pelican, this guy was just plain distracted by something. Expensive mistake... A pelican... Sucker.

Nice thing about salt water is that you will not have discussions about the state of any electrical part of the car. If the engine is not flooded, it might be feasable to fix the car. (if they flush it down with fresh water really, really well as soon as possible)

Let's keep an eye on advertisements offering the car. Could be a nice Ebay subject.
