An attempt to fraud insurance with a Bugatti Veyron in a lake might bring 20 years of prison

Andy House is a guy who loves exotic cars and back in 2009 he bought a Bugatti Veyron for $1 million and had it insured for a staggering $2.2 million. However, on November 11 of that year, he decided that he wants the money from the insurance company and decided to drive the Veyron into Gulf Bay. You can also see the videos to better understand the case.

The story was simple as he just needed to leave the motor running when the vehicle was in the water, which resulted into a total loss of the hypercar.

Regarding the insurance company, Andy House wanted to tell them that some pelicans were the cause of the accident but unfortunately, someone filmed the scene and the video was uploaded on the Internet.

Now, the story goes like this: the insurance company, Philadelphia Insurance, sued Andy House for insurance fraud but the trial was postponed in October 2012 for unknown reasons. Philadelphia Insurance also claims that their client attempted rob rive someone in order to steal the car and set it on fire.

Today, Andy House pleads guilty, but he is facing 20 years of prison. No words about the poor pelican though, I guess the United States Federal Witness Protection Program is taking good care of him!

If you still don’t know, we will remind you folks that the Bugatti Veyron carries a 8.0-liter W16 engine that generates 1,001 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.45 seconds, while top speed is 408.47 km/h or 253.8 mph.
