Bugatti Veyron runs out of fuel in Beirut

Article by Christian A., on September 11, 2014

Although it is sold for a staggering price of over $1 million and you need to be a wealthy person to afford one, this Bugatti Veyron needs to appear on a candid camera prank. Why? Because the vehicle just stopped in traffic in Beirut, Lebanon, after it ran out of fuel. That’s right folks, the $1 million supercar had no fuel in a country where oil refining is one of the main industries.

What’s even funnier is that the driver had to ask for help from the other drivers found in traffic. The good news is that the driver was helped by others and managed to get the hell out of there. We suspect that he pushed the pedal to the metal in order to disappear and hoped that nobody photographed this situations.

Unfortunately he wasn’t lucky as somebody snapped the supercar while being refueled by some people.

For those folks who don’t know, the Bugatti 16.4 Veyron is powered by a 8.0-liter W16 quad-supercharged petrol engine that delivers 1,001 hp and is capable to a accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, to 100 mph in 5.5 seconds and to 150 mph in 9.8 seconds. The vehicle also needs 18.3 seconds to reach 200 mph and 42.3 seconds to accelerate to 250 mph.
