Bugatti Fraud!

We've probably all seen the video of that Bugatti Veyron driving into the water.... Turns out, he did it on purpose!

Because, in North America, many people like to play the big roller yet have no money. He was in over his head, had a car with a bunch of money tied up in it and it seems like a good idea at the time.

Its official, they legally have announced what the rest of the world already knew Wonder what kind of punishment you get for fraud of a $1mill car......bet that one is going to hurt.

Jeez that was FIVE years ago!!!!

He had over 2 million of insurance on it, so I guess he thought he'd come out on top to buy and wreck a car.

Oh I saw the article, but until sentenced what happens to him is up on the air. If it were like up here in Canada, he would get a stern talking to and maybe a small fine......20 years would suck tho.
