Look through the listings of NHTSA and IIHS crash tested vehicles and it’s rare that you’ll ever see low volume, hyper-expensive supercars listed.

That doesn’t mean such cars aren’t safe, however, as they’re often put through their paces by the manufacturers themselves to ensure they offer at least some degree of crash safety.

Pictured above is a Bugatti Veyron, costing around $1.5 million, being crash tested by engineers in Germany during its development phase back in the earlier part of the last decade. In fact, between 2002 and 2005 Bugatti performed a number of crash tests using mega-dollar Veyron prototypes, almost always with their engines and luxury amenities in tow.

Bugatti has never officially revealed any images of the Veyron being crashed tested but this set of the supercar completing a frontal impact crash test recently surfaced online.

Follow the jump below to see more of the gruesome images.

  1. Hey Vic,
    A quick lesson in adjectives; grue·some/ˈgro͞osəm/
    Adjective: Causing repulsion or horror; grisly.
    I see none of this in the photos. Looks like a 20 MPH crash since there isn't very much damage. I expected to see the front axle where the passengers sit. But I guess ya gotta make stuff up to get clicks to your page.

  2. And you don't recoil in horror at the thought of a 1.5MILLION dollar car being damaged in any way shape or form?

    Must be the 1%.

  4. I have to agree with Tim. Even though the car costs more than I will make in my lifetime, it is still only a car.

    Gruesome is the front end sitting where the seats used to be, or the car split in half. Of course, if either of those events had happened, the video would never have been allowed to surface.

  5. Gruesome does not apply at all. no matter what the price tag is, it's just a car. Gruesome would have been body parts hanging out of the wreckage.
