It seems that some hypercar owners need to practice parking and unparking their rides. A month after a Bugatti Divo backed up into a Mercedes-Benz CLS, a Veyron came in close contact with a Lamborghini Aventador while unparking.
The incident was caught on camera and @heinrichs_carlife posted the video on Instagram. The driver of the blue Bugatti Veyron is definitely the one at fault here since they can be seen reversing the car in a tight parking spot. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of a bystander who is asking the driver to stop the car, they back right into a parked Aventador – and, more specifically, its rear right alloy wheel.
As you can see, the rear bumper of the Veyron scratched the black-painted wheel of the Aventador. Both hypercars will need to be repaired and even though the damage is not substantial, it definitely won’t come cheap.
Thankfully, there weren’t any scratches on the angular bodywork of the Lamborghini whose owner will just need to have that wheel fixed. However, the Veyron will probably require a skilled technician to fix the scratch on the bumper that has to be repainted. Guess those Bugattis don’t offer much rear visibility and/or their drivers need to be more aware of their hypercar’s size when maneuvering.
