This Bugatti Chiron Fender Bender Won't Be A Cheap Fix

Crash / Comments

The insurance company can't have been too happy.

Chances are most drivers will be involved in at least a fender bender at some point in their driving lives. It's really bad when the crash is in something rare, and it's even worse when it involves a supercar or three, but it's downright depressing if it happens in something like a Bugatti Chiron, a car that costs a little under $3 million before any options. Sadly for one Jaguar driver, that's exactly what happened, with the silver sedan in the video below rear-ending a black Chiron. Talk about world's colliding.

The circumstances surrounding the accident are unclear, but it appears that the Chiron is owned by Aleem Iqbal, who runs a luxury car rental business called Platinum Executive Travel in the UK. According to reports, the Chiron was available for rental from the company at a rate of around $41,500 per day, and it seems that Iqbal was not the driver at the time. The drivers of either car haven't been identified, but we're pretty sure their respective insurance providers weren't happy to get the calls explaining what happened. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, so it it seems unlikely that the drivers were going especially fast.

As for damage, it appears that the hood and front bumper of the Jaguar will need replacing, but with such a poor-quality video, it's difficult to be sure. As for the Bugatti, that spectacular full-width taillight bar has been extensively damaged, and both the structural surround thereof (which is one massive panel leading to the A-pillar and down to the rocker panel) and the massive carbon fiber diffuser are quite badly damaged too. The Chiron's exhaust may also have been affected in the incident, as may the deployable rear wing. Ouch.

If you see a supercar on a back country road, maybe it's best to keep your distance.
