Remember the Bugatti Veyron that took an unplanned dip in Texas salt water?

Gazzer has the video.

  1. The original story says the owner was distracted by a pelican and dropped his cell phone. Does anyone see a pelican in that video?

  2. I do not see a pelican, but I also don’t see any reason why this driver would veer off the road. It’s a very lame accident, except for the exceptional waste of an awesome car.

    Even our lame accidents are bigger in Texas!

  3. I really don’t like people who talk on their cellphones when they drive, especially when they’re driving absurdly over-powered European sports cars. I really like salt water swamps, though.

  4. I’m thinking that the owner realized that he paid $2 million for some French-built piece of crap with a life expectancy of 37,000 miles and is now looking to recoup from his insurance.

  5. No way that driver was distracted by external circumstances. He was just $2 million worth of stupid.

  6. I was also a little suspicious at how the two guys in the truck just happened along with a camera. A bit like when actor Eddie Griffin suspiciously crashed an Enzo whilst doing publicity for his upcoming film. Time will tell.

  7. $2 million does not buy you an exemption from the laws of physics.

  8. Check the financial status of the owner. I smell insurance fraud, like Gazzer
