The Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest street-legal cars in the world, powered by an 8-liter W16 quad turbocharged engine that is capable of putting out more then 1000-hp. All this power makes the Veyron capable of going 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of more than 250 mph. On top of this, the Veyron is also one of the most expensive vehicles in the world with a price tag of more than 1.7-million dollars.
Currently, only around 200 Veyrons exist worldwide with 15 of them located in the United States.
In Texas a Bugatti owner was reaching down to get his cell phone and then was distracted by a pelican on the road. He swerved to miss the Pelican and drove his 1.7 million dollar vehicle into a lagoon. The crazy part of all this story is there is video evidence of the wreck. I am sure there will be some investigating on insurance fraud.
1.7 million dollars for a car. I am still just shocked that someone would spend that much on a car. If I had that much I would just buy a nice sedan and just hire a personal driver. Plus I would have money left over. Check out the pictures and the video of the crash.
