Bugatti Veyron - crashed!

By Gary R, in , posted: 7-Mar-2007 11:41

There is a report on the Beeb about a punter who crashed their 800,000 quid car. Nasty!

For those of you who do not know what a Veyron is there are lots of references on Google. This is one hell of a car:

- 1001 horse power
- Top speed 253Mph
- 0-60Mph in 2.5 seconds
- 8 litre, 4 turbo, 16 cylinder engine

The car is made by VW who are only producing 300 units. The Veyron sells for USD1.2M and is rumored to cost VW between USD5-6M to build each car. Not very profitable!

I would hate to think how much one these puppies would cost to insure.

I'd say it would be in the regions of 4 or 5 thousand pounds a year.
