Yesterday insurance assessors began working out whether the hand-built French motor was repairable — or the most exclusive write-off on the planet.

A police source said it was thought the Veyron — capable of 253mph — was doing around 100mph when it slewed out of control.

It spun three times, hitting a Vauxhall Astra with a seven-months pregnant woman inside, before smashing into trees up a 3ft bank.

The woman was taken to hospital for a check-up but was alright.

Lmao!! Wot a bummer! grin

An update:

Originally Posted By: Autotrader
Police are investigating the Bugatti Veyron smash which left one of the world’s fastest cars seriously damaged.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said: “We are investigating a collision which took place on Sunday involving a Bugatti Veyron and Vauxhall Astra estate.

“The driver of the Bugatti Veyron has been reported by police on suspicion of driving without due care and attention.

“We now have six months to collate evidence to decide whether or not to press charges.”

The front end of the 253mph red and black Veyron was seriously damaged after Sunday’s collision.

It is understood the Veyron’s owner – who IS NOT believed to have been the driver at the time - had been on the waiting list for the supercar for over a year.

He had owned the motor for just one week before Sunday’s crash in Shepperton, Surrey.

Insurers were last night assessing whether to repair the car or make the £830,000 supercar Britain’s most expensive right-off.

Only 300 Veyrons have been made, with just 12 sold in the UK.

The owner must be propper gutted. As must the insurance company. Lol, I don't rekon he will be letting the wife near any of his cars in the future...
