You drive a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. You're the cream of the crop, the richest of the rich. And with a 254 mph top speed, you're the fastest of the fast.
But that doesn't mean you're necessarily the best of the best when it comes to driving.
Take this Veyron, for instance. It was doing a high speed run, topping out around 208. That's quick! And at that speed, your perception can be warped. When slowing down, 50 mph could feel like 5, particularly if you're somewhere that doesn't have many reference points.
Like a runway.
This Veyron slows after hitting 208, and starts heading towards the barriers, presumably to make a gradual turn and head back to the paddock. That's when the inexplicable happens.
As the driver gets closer, it's clear he's a) not slowing down enough and b) heading damn near straight towards the barriers.
That raises a number of questions, like why didn't he go through the center where there are no barriers? How didn't he notice that he was still hurtling straight at a wall? Did he not look at his speedometer?
Not that it mattered. The Veyron plows right into the temporary barriers, sending water and plastic everywhere. It's one of the weirder crashes we've ever seen, but thankfully the driver and passenger were all right. The Veyron also seems to escape fairly unscathed thanks to robust carbon fiber construction.
