Default Number Two

It's official this is the second Veyron to crash in this world. Like the first one this accident took place in UK as well. What is up with the people there? This one appears to be worse than the first crash and it is still not known if the car can be repaired. Seems like the car lost control on a bend, flew off the road spinning a few times before it came to a stop. Information about what really happend or if the driver survived is not available at the moment.

From the pics it looks like the driver should have escaped unhurt.

I'm not too sure. The front windshield is bashed in. That too on the left side and all Veyrons are LHD. That intrusion combined with the force of stopping could have caused damage to the drivers head. Then again there are airbabgs and the fact that this car is 840,000 pounds means it has some of the best safety instrumentation in the world. I dunno I guess we have to wait till more details surface.

Hey guys,

look at the first pic, see the way the grass in front of the car is flattened. It therefore looks that the car went backwards into the grass after hitting something which in turn spun it. DAMN !!! It just hurts u deep inside just looking at the pics....

Bugatti Veyron Crash

I wanted to know how exactly the turbo has been installed on the Veyron, when I was searching that I read a post from vcarz.co.uk about a crash of a Bugatti Veyron. Luckily no one was injured. The accident happened when the brother of the owner crashed the car into a Vauxhall Astra.

The owner, Kumar Soni, bought the car for 830,000 and he was on the waiting list for 1 year. At the moment, there are only 12 Bugatti Veyrons in the UK. Just within 1 week after receiving the super car, his brother did the unbelievable. Even though the brother was not injured, I don’t know what happen afterward.

Think twice before you lend your car to your brother or anyone else in the future

PS: from internet search.
