The Bugatti Chiron, the current fastest road-going production car in the world with a top speed limited to 261km/h debuted earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show with a price tag of €2.4 million (Rs 17.82 crore).
However, it would seem that the frightening acceleration levels (0 - 100km/h in under 2.5 seconds), the crazy top speed and the big price tag aren't reasons enough to ensure that those driving one treat it with respect.
In the case of the Chiron seen above, that's exactly what happened. The car was being tested at Volkswagen's (yes, they own Bugatti as well) facility in Wolfsburg, Germany and ended up nose down in a ditch.
To make matter worse, the car was pulled out with the help of a vehicle usually seen at a construction site.
The reason for the crash - an inattentive test driver. In an official statement to Bild, Bugatti Confirmed the news stating, "The driver was unfortunately a little inattentive, which is why the car landed in the road ditch. Fortunately nobody was hurt. "
Thankfully, the crashed Bugatti wasn't one of the 500 customer cars, so we can relax and let out the deep breath we were holding fearing that there would be one less Chiron for us to spot in a millionaire's garage somewhere.
