This incident happened at Zandvoort - a beach resort in the Netherlands and home to the Circuit Park racecourse. In most cases gravel pits are designed to stop F1-style cars, but now we know the heavier Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is no match for the sinking grit as well.

There are not much details on what actually happened, but it’s a safe bet that a whoever did it will pay a lot for the mistake, literally. Considering the car retails for $1.5 million, all the little dents and dings from the pebbles will quickly add up.

Shivers-no problem if you can spend that much dough on a car! I’m sure he is more pissed than worried about repairs.

The driver must have feel some pretty deep cold chills when he lost control... it is always a little frustrating to loose 1.5 Million ! especially when no insurance will cover a track accident...

At least the fellow driver had the guts to put it to the max on the track smiley

Don’t expect your local VW dealer to fix that one!
