Video: Bugatti lagoon crash

Yes, the clip of the Veyron plunging into a Texan lagoon has hit in the internet. Watch and wince…

Last week, we showed you a tragic video of a Bugatti Veyron drowning slowly in a Texan lagoon. This video made us sad.

Now, improbably, footage has surfaced of the million-quid hypercar actually plunging into the water. (Thanks to all those who tipped us off, by the way.)

We can't decide whether it's hugely coincidental that some good ol' boys just so happened to be filming the Bug moments before it crashed into the lake... or completely understandable. It's a super-rare exotic supercar, right? You'd have done the same, wouldn't you?

We also can't decide whether it's hugely coincidental that the driver has been identified by local media as the owner of a company that restores wrecked supercars for resale.

Whichever way, we feel there's probably more to come from this story.

Oh, and just a quick warning before you hit play - there's some Very, Very Bad Language on this video. Turn your speakers down if you're at work.

No sign of that rumoured pelican, either...

Now share it...
