Dubbed by The Guinness Book of World Records the fastest production car in the world, the Bugatti Veyron costs a whopping one million US dollars. Powered by a monstrous 8-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produces a staggering 1000 hp this Beast from the East (of France) is among the most desirable cars in the world.

If the latest reports are to be believed, this (particular) example of automotive excellence can be yours for a (somewhat) reasonable $250,000. According to Yahoo Autos, this very Veyron pictured above was involved in an accident where the driver lost control of the supercar during a downpour. Though the driver wasn’t injured, the car did end up taking a hell of a beating…

After smashing through a guard rail, the car rolled into a ditch before coming to a complete stop. It is reported that it took nearly two hours to ‘rescue’ her. The front end, suspension and doors sustained the heaviest damage. Since replacement parts for the Veyron are ludicrously expensive, experts believe repairing this one will match the cost of a brand new Bugatti Veyron.

So, why not just buy a new one you must be thinking? Well as it turns out, you can’t! Supercars it would appear are super difficult to come by… They are produced in limited quantities and for those who can afford them, they mostly end up parked in a garage for “safekeeping” until the owner either decides to auction it, or take it out in a torrential downpour and crash it!

With an acceleration time of 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds flat and with only 32,000 km on-the-clock, at a quarter of a million dollars this Bugatti Veyron is a steal.
