Only filthy rich idiots would buy this car, and even more filthy rich idiots would go bang the car somewhere. And here is another stupid idiot who came very close to banging the Veyron on a Media track event. It would've been the first Veyron crash...

I'm suprised more shouldnt have happened already - 1000 horses are way beyond the capabilities a 100 IQ person at the wheel.

The way the incident was described looks like it could have happened to anyone, veyron got into puddle of water, this happened to my Zen too, and bcos of the piddly engine tho i was at 100 Plus the car did not lose control completely.

Moral of the story: Dont get your veyron out for a spin when it rains

Talking

Why does all the cars which are expensive and great turn out to be IDIOT and stupid to some??

I would be happy to hear what speed it was doing when crashed. Because it looks very safe in the driver's compartment.
The repair cost is going to be sky high. Or these guys will send it to the VW museum as an exhibit!!!
