If I was the tow driver, I wouldn't want to touch it.

Incredible. But, that's what million dollar insurance is for, right?

......ugh......

Who is it? How could they not release the name? He should be cited with some sort of traffic ticket and that should be public records.

Wow...must have been one pretty bird. DUMB A$$!

Who here thinks that MAYBE he was having some financial difficulty and decided it was time to 'sell' the Bugatti to his insurance agent?

I live in the Houston area and they ran a story about this on the morning Channel 2 news. Even my kids yelled out "Dumb Ass" ()....and I couldn't even yell at them about their potty mouth since I agreed!!!

When you can afford a 1.6 million dollar car. You can afford to pay the press NOT to release your name.

TOO FUNNY!

I was driving a handful of exotic cars for fun last week and one of the requirements we were told was "NO CELL PHONE USE IN THE CARS". A good rule to have when you are driving someone elses six figure (or seven figure) automobile at a high rate of speed.

-Mark.

You should have to pass an stupid test before being allowed to buy such a piece of machinery. He's lucky he didn't slam on the accelerator by accident. Instant-150mph....

Wait a minute..

*dashes off to look something up*
- X

P.S. - As I thought. His spoiler is in the extended position. The Veyron's hydraulic spoiler does not extend until 140 mph.

Something is fishy about this story. I think he's not being completely truthful about what happened (going fast, had to brake quickly, lost control, and went off the road - no injuries because he had already slowed down quite considerably and because water absorbs a lot of impact).

Oh I think I can explain that... On the underside of the spoiler there is a warning label that states "In the event of a water landing, this spoiler can be used as a flotation device"



ok just kidding.

Its a marvel of engineering. A shame you don't need to be a marvel yourself to own one. I agree with the CCX. Even the Gumpert Apollo was faster than it was if I recall, as per the Top Gear test track. Its just a bit too heavy around corners, I think. I thought you could set the spoiler to come up at all speeds in one setting. Still, driving while on his cell phone-him plus hundreds of others I see deserve a similar fate just to stir them up.

I wonder if his insurance will renew his policy when the time comes...

What I want to know is who the **** drives a Bugatti Veyron while talking on a cell phone? Do that shit in a daily driver, but not a multi-million dollar supercar.
