The Bugatti Veyron thrown into a lake in 2009 will be restored!

The Bugatti Veyron which had been thrown into a lake by its former owner who wanted to scam the insurance will finally be saved!

Do you remember this video? These completely absurd images posted online at a time when YouTube was still in its infancy, a little over ten years ago. We then saw a Bugatti Veyron, an even rarer model at the time, finishing its race in a lake. Well, this video is up to date again. Indeed, the Bugatti Veyron that ended up in the lake will finally be restored!

An insurance scam gone wrong

The model will be restored for resale

Recently, a dealership tracked down poor Bugatti sleeping in a garage in America since her inglorious swim in the lake. The latter decided to buy the model for 400 000 dollars.

According to the new owner, the total cost of this Veyron when renovated should be negotiated at more than 800 000 dollars. An interesting rate for the dealer who always remains if the latter manages to resell it for an amount approaching a million dollars. But nothing is less certain…
