Just found this story here:
I'd love to hear the phone call to the insurance company
I laughed and cried at the same time. Not the prettiest car but still...
That is one powerful car...and expensive too!
Wonder how he will explain his mistake as I doubt he was going the speed limit.
He needs to be forced to drive a 15 year old Yugo
That might be considered cruel and unusual punishment!
That is so sad!!! How could you do that to such a beautiful car?!? Oh the humanity!
sadly i really am hurt that he did that though, 'tis a shame
Bound to happen at some stage I guess.
Such a shame to what happened to the car. I do agree, the driver needs to be punished. Yugo is harsh, but I like it. What about a Pinto?
A sickening sight to be sure...absolute power corrupts absolutely, even when that power comes with all-wheel drive.
He should be SPADED!
At least we all know WITHOUT A DOUBT how effective the quality of craftmanship this car is built with. the C pillar hasn't been affective.
But its a rightoff!
I've had the opportunity to sit in one as I knew one of the showgirls at the LA Auto Show. Man, is that thing low. I had some trouble getting in and out of it.
Ouch... Just, ouch! Well, im sure VW will repair it for him anyway.
Just goes to prove, you cannot buy brains.
If you can't drive the flipping thing well enough to keep it under control when aqua planeing you shouldnt be allowed it. On another note if the bloke can afford it in the first place i think he'll have enough to get it repaired somehow. I doubt it would be a write off aswel. The value of the car will be alot more than the price of the repairs. The guy will have an awful premium now though!
I doubt it will be a right off either, just a very expensive rebuild. But as you correctly say as well, if he (or she!) can afford it in the first place, he/she can likely afford to have it repaired - or even buy another one. You're stupid to buy one if you can't afford what might happen to it and you need to be worth tens of millions to truly be able to afford a car like that.
I read a report he was renting it for £20k per day. He aquaplaned at 100mph (in a 40mph zone) so it doesnt matter how good you are at driving you are going to be climbing a tree soon after.
Technically it should be an instant right off because each car costs (according to TopGear) £5m to make. So to fix it would cost a hell of a lot and could easily eclipse the £800,000 price tag.
If he was driving at 100mph in a 40mph zone then he deserves what he gets. First of all it should be an instant ban.
Too much money & zero skill
Unless it was on a corner he should've been able to handle it...and the puddle was huge! I've aquaplaned at 80 on motorways and keep my car undercontrol... If he had proper control of the vehicle he should of have the nonce to not crash!
Still im sure they'll repair it. They are in extremely limited supply as it is!
I doubt the car will be written-off, even if it is not economical to repair (they aren't economical to buy in the first place).
Gotta watch the 'ol right foot when you've got 1000bhp!
Doesn't look beyond economical repair does it. Especially when you're potentially writing off the best part of a million quid.
I didn't know they'd built 300 of them. Thats £1.5Billion (Almost, anyway). Thats a lot. I also didn't know there was as many as 16 in the UK.
Go to the bugatti website. You can spec one out. Ive 'saved' an order.
Just incase. Hehe
Ooops, Broken Veyron!
