Proving once again that money can't buy reversing skills.

Here we have another example of one universal, inescapable truth. A person’s driving talent does not increase in relation to the size of their wallet.

In short, the fact that you can afford a Veyron does not mean you’re qualified to drive it. Even at slow speed. The owner of a Ferrari F50 proved as much in 2014 after colliding with a lamppost on the way to a track day.

One unfortunate Veyron owner found that out recently, at the expense of an innocent Lamborghini Aventador. It’s not clear where the accident took place, not that it matters. Both cars are horribly expensive, no matter where you are in the world.

Perhaps calling it an accident is a bit of a stretch. It was more of a touch than anything else, yet the bill for the repairs will run into the thousands.

The Lamborghini Aventador seems to have escaped with just a scratched rim, while the Bugatti’s rear bumper has a small scratch.

As far as rare supercar crashes go, this one is still on the cheap end of the spectrum. Rowan Atkinson totaled his McLaren F1 twice, and a Bugatti Divo recently reversed into a Mercedes CLS.

We did a quick investigation, and it seems neither the Veyron nor the Divo has park distance control. It may be something worth including in future Bugatti models.

As for the cost of the accident, it looks rather bleak, but not unaffordable to a chap who already has a Veyron. A set of alloys for the Aventador is around $7,000, but the Bugatti is more of a problem.

While it has never been confirmed, an oil change for the Veyron apparently costs around $20,000, so we can’t imagine buffing a scratch out is cheaper than that. If we had to guess, we’d say that small scratch is going to cost about as much as a BMW M5 to repair.

The most valuable player in this video is the guy who intervened at the last minute. If he hadn’t knocked on the Bugatti’s window, this minor touching incident could have escalated into a full-blown crash.
