Default What not to do when your Veyron breaks down

This Veyron broke down when the owner took it abroad on a leisure trip. Surely it doesn't say anywhere in the manual that if your Veyron doesn't start, try jump starting it! Tragic for the owner but I find this hilarious.

Must say I have never seen a Veyron with its front open.

The Car is originally from Ajman however this happened in Lebanon.

(Mods please move thread to another place if appropriate)

What is the source of the picture? Would be interesting to read / see what happened - when I read the thread's title, I was expecting something to have blown up or damaged badly.

wow thats some nice mechanics it got in the front, I thought it was a luggage compartment. Jump starting the big bug to life should be quite a task

Guys the source is an email recieved from one of my friends. Not sure where it originated from though. The car and the picture are genuine as I have seen this car in London as well (though without someone trying to jump start it! ). Belongs to the Oman based RRR group.

A Battery is placed in front of the car.
The battery has Jump start cables connected to it.
The cables are going no where.

So (when) did the jump-start attempt happen ?

Jump start, or tow me away

Seeing this beast in this state out in the open, sparked off something cheeky in my head

Cheers
