With only 15 examples in the country, and 300 being produced in total, it’s safe to say the Bugatti Veyron is one of the rarest cars on the planet. So it pains us to see this video of one example that ended up in a saltwater lake in Texas.

What makes it worse is that the driver of the vehicle left the engine running and the door wide open after exiting the vehicle. The engine reportedly ran for 15 minutes in its submerged state before finally drowning.

Apparently the driver of the $1 million supercar was distracted by a low-flying pelican before hitting a patch of mud and crashing into the lake.

You can still see the previous video of the car being extracted from the muddy water by clicking here.
