Bugatti Veyron impounded for going 170MPH during the Gumball 3000

May 8th, 2009

A 1.5 million dollar Bugatti Veyron was impounded and the driver was arrested for going 170MPH during the Gumball 3000 this week. The Gumball 3000 Rally is a 3000 mile route, incorporating stops in Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Santa Fe, Dallas, and New Orleans showcasing 120 of the most fantastic cars ever built, including vintage, customised and luxury Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, Aston Martins and Bugattis alongside America’s finest muscle cars and today’s ‘greenest’ hybrid and electric vehicles of the future. While the Gumball 300 isn’t officially a race, we imagine there is plenty of high speed drag racing on the highways during their cross country routes.
