We don’t often hear about Bugatti Veyron accidents. Perhaps it is the four wheel drive and extreme value which makes owners drive more cautiously. This Bugatti Veyron accident happened in Austria last night at around 10 pm.
The car was travelling along the A2 between Seebenstein and Grimmenstein in the direction of Graz. It appears as though the driver lost control of the car in wet conditions, crashing through a guard rail and falling about 40 meters down an embankment.
It must have been a terrifying experience for the driver, the car fortunately did not flip upside-down. The driver walked away from the accident without any injuries and was even able to provide accurate GPS coordinates to the police and salvage crews!
We are told it took around 1.5 hours to recover the car using cranes and two fire department vehicles. For the rescue crew, this was probably the job of a life time!
As to the damage sustained by the Bugatti Veyron, it looks as though remarkably few of the panels were damaged. The damage looks most severe at the front of the car, particularly the gouged wing. The rear wheels look to have sustained some damage and there is no telling what hides under the bodywork. Still, the owner will likely be glad that he walked away from the accident without any injuries.
