Watch This!

I heard this story before, the guy was in Malaysia and was caught speeding so the police destroyed his car. What model is it ? looks alright.

but it did'nt make me cry.

THIS VIDEO HOWEVER DID MAKE ME CRY

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=jk1t6S737Cs

Watching the car reach upto 400+ km/h was so emotional. I felt like buying one right now and going right to the top speed. knowing a street legal car can reach speeds of 407 km/h made me have tears in my eyes.

(if your not a real car enthusiast you would'nt understand!)

I've seen this video before. I am not much of a fan of the Veyron, but that is truly an amazing feat.

If im not mistaking, this is a repost but here is what really happened.

Thailand Government Crushes Ferrari's and other exotic cars……

Here’s why…these cars are hot commodities within the auto theft industry in Thailand. But the thieves are smart, they steal the cars, strip the most valuable parts; engine, gearbox, wiring harness, differentials and electronics, and dump the car somewhere to be found by the authorities. The cars are declared a total loss by insurance companies because it would cost almost double the price of the car to order new parts and install them than the car is worth. Then these cars go to the dealer auctions, the thieves bid on the car at a ridiculous low price, because nobody wants to spend that much to rebuild them. Then own the car legally, reinstall the parts and sell it at a very good price in another country without any history of it ever being stolen and all the VIN #’s match. The car is now legally laundered. So the Thailand government caught on to this scheme and is no longer selling them at auctions. Instead, they crush them leaving the thieves with no car, just parts.

One a side note, a car that is made of only aluminum, this is how strong they are built and engineered
