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

Its owner indeed tried to recover much more than the residual value of the car, which was insured even more expensive.

As a reminder, the Bugatti Veyron is a exceptional supercar released in 2005. This is a model that was only produced 450 copies until 2015 with a price well over one million euros! It therefore seems unthinkable to damage a model as rare as this one.

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.

When we know that the model is still valid today more than a million euros on the second-hand market, we imagine that the operation can be profitable. Even more if the owner makes the necessary efforts for a proper refurbishment.

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…
