The $1.7 million dollar driving mistake


So your brother borrowed your Civic and brought it home with a crease in the bumper? You should feel fortunate, compared to wealthy Brit Kumar Soni. According to the Carscape blog, it appears Kumar's younger brother took Kumar's brand-new $1.68 million dollar Bugatti Veyron out for a spin near his $6 million Surrey, England estate.

You can guess what happened next. Although the car's 1000-hp engine is capable of pushing the car up to 253 miles per hour, the driver barely reached triple digits on a 40 mph stretch of road in a heavy rainstorm before he spun out. The Veyron smashed into another car before ending up in a hedgerow, the front end destroyed, the car totaled. Fortunately, no-one was seriously injured.

Bystanders reported witnessing Kumar and his brother Ajay in a bitter argument shortly thereafter. Wouldn't you love to have eavesdropped on that discussion?
