    Rare Bugatti crashes into trees

    A car worth more than £800,000 was involved in a collision with a van before crashing into trees.

    The accident occurred in heavy rain on a 40mph section of Renfree Way, Shepperton, Surrey, on Sunday.

    The rare Bugatti Veyron collided with a Vauxhall Astra van carrying a pregnant woman, who was taken to hospital as a precaution but later went home.

    No one else was hurt but police have reported the Bugatti driver for driving without due care and attention.

    Surrey Police said the luxury car was driven by a man who had a male passenger with him.

    A man and a woman were travelling in the Astra.

    The accident occurred at 1440 GMT and the road was closed until 1630 GMT.

    The eight-litre, hand-crafted Veyron has a top speed in excess of 250mph.

    The 1,000 horsepower Bugatti can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 2.5 seconds.
  2. I also heard on the radio, the Veyron was only about a month old, and the guy who owned had rented it to a friend for about AUD20,000 / day, and they think the car is a right off!
  3. This angers me, its a sunny day car. FOOOL He could have given it to me dammit
  4. LOL :LOL: I Must Say It Bloody Was! :p
  5. Lol, its not about the crash, it's just an add to boost sales for Bugatti :p
  6. They don't make the Veyron anymore - not according to the top Top gear episode where Jeremy drove it from Italy to London.

    Top gear said it's the best car ever made... big statement! They cost $5m to make, but were sold for $2.5m. That's right, sold at a loss. Made by VW for Bugatti, it's the "Concorde" of the motorvehicle world.

    ...this is a truly hornbag car...

    Hope all involved survived.
  7. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    And he hit an Astra!!!

    Damn shame, what a waste of a car.
  8. also to quote Jeremy:
    "Its not really a throttle under your right foot, its more like a hyperspace button!!!"
    As a comparison the the Maclaren F1, you can let the F1 reach 150mph before the Veyron sets off from zero, and the Veyron will bet it to 200mph!
    I'd almost go without sex for the rest of my life to own that car!... Almost!
  9. thats a fine heap of metal!
  10. No, they're still making, they're planning for a full run of 300, I think they've shifted about 70 or 80 now
