Crashed Bugatti Chiron via GTBoardEnlarge Photo
Like everything, it was only a matter of time before the new Bugatti Chiron hypercar was crashed, and now it's happened.
While it might feel like the Chiron has been around a while--that's what happened when we have concept car versions of production cars--it's actually still rather new. Customers just started taking delivery of their new toy a few months ago.
Bild reached out to Bugatti for comment and spokeswoman Manuela Hohne said, “The driver was unfortunately a little inattentive, which is why the car landed in the road ditch. Fortunately nobody was hurt.”
Why is a forklift dragging this Chiron? Your guess is as good as ours, but it hurts our heart to even look at this photo.
All-wheel drive will help keep you on the road, sure, but 1,480 horsepower from a quad-turbocharged W-16 engine is clearly a lot to handle. Not only that, but you'll reach a good clip in the blink of an eye with 0-60 mph happening in just 2.5 seconds.
Here's hoping most of these hypercars stay shiny side up going forward.
