    It's a rudder now


    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    I had heard that in the upcoming 007 movie they were going to use a Veyron as a submarine. Remember Roger Moore with the Lotus?

    Complete write-off for sure since it was submerged. I wonder what will become of it?

    Don't worry, it will turn up as a Katrina car again.

    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

     I heard the driver said a pelican got in the way, and then he dropped his cell phone. ...You'd think -for a million plus bucks -that the car would come with bluetooth??

    It might come with bluetooth, but then, noone can see your Vertu

    Anyway - sad to see, but sh*t happens! Good that nothing happend to the driver, this is at the end always the most important thing!

    I heard on CNBC that the driver claimed to have been distracted by a pelican, but what's that about dropping his cell phone?? Smiley

    So he was using his cell phone when driving his Veyron, but blames a pelican for distracting him and making him drop his cell phone and subsequently to crash his car? Smiley

    If that is supposedly the story, then I would not be too surprised  - or critical of the insurance company  -  if, in this instance, it refused to pay up. Smiley

    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    It could be this scenario: He was cruising fast (it's a Veyron) talking to his GF on the cell, when all of a sudden he sees this pelican by the side of the road with this enormous fish in his beak. Being a passionate sports fisherman he is so awestruck and jealous that he dropped his platinum Vertu from his hand. Going: Oh shit please don't let me chip of the diamond from it, he reached for the Phone and  turned "unconsciously" towards the pelican, causing the poor creature to loose his lunch but get away with its life in the nick of time!

    I'm sure insurance will believe it...

      I think this video will help his insurance company

      


    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    Far and wide no sign of a low flying pelican.  Smiley

     Yes, and he wasn't very fast either, so how the heck did he manage to end up in the water? 


    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    can't believe that was caught on video! looks like he feel a sleep or was not looking to the road doing something else, he doesn't even look like he tries to avoid the water once he is out of the road and into the dirt

    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    It does seem a remarkable coincidence that there was a video camera filming just as a Veyron drives into a lake...

    ...could it be the result of a sudden steering failure brought on by a catastrophic drop in residual values?

    ...or maybe it's Jeremy Clarkson demonstrating his driving talents for the new series of Top Gear?

    hahaha "That will be mine one day"

    Better start refreshing that www.salvagedirect.com/ page if you want it, dude!

    I can't believe it was filmed. Priceless!!!

    Re: Ever wondered if a Veyron was waterproof ?

    Word on the street is:

    Owner first remained anonymous and claimed a low flying pelican obstructed his view which caused the accident. He has now been identified as Andy House, the owner of Performance Auto Sales in Lufkin. His company restores wrecked exotics which makes you wonder if this was all just a publicity stunt. Unfortunately for him someone caught the accident on camera which doesn't show any pelican flying by... someones got some explaining to do.

    To me the reaction of the “filming crew “it’s way to fast it is almost as they were expecting it.There is no delay to what is happening .

     If I was in that situation and the engine couldn't be fixed at all i'd take it out and put it in my living room as decor. how many people can say they have a Veyrons engine in display at home.

     "dodgy" is very polite, the claim would probably not have worked even if he was not filmed driving it into the lake Smiley

    As I said: The insurance WILL love it! hahaha

    Insurance already LOVES the internet! hahaha
