A video has popped up of the incident. There was no bird. He just, as someone put it, calmly merged into the lake.

The guy's profession? Restoring wrecked exotic cars and reselling them. He owns Eddie Griffin's wrecked Enzo.

Ell oh ell.

Veyron racing a jet on Top Gear (BBCA), right now, 5 PM EST. Also, MSN article listing top ten all-time expensive cars has it listed as #2, to a Swedish car also shown on Top Gear.

Well, despite your profiling (i on the end must mean Italian or something like that), according to their website, their address is:

Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
1, Château Saint Jean
Dorlisheim
67120 Molsheim
France

http://www.bugatti.com/en/home/contact.html

(Maybe we should edit the "Go ahead ask PC anything" threat to make it "Go ahead and ask PC anything... except about cars")

It's both.

Primary interest in the company is French... you imbecile.

The Veyron is made by Messier - Bugatti.

And now, it's actually Volkswagen. Yep, the Veyron is made by VW. Bugatti is just a name now.

Bugatti's just been a name for a long-ol' time. 80s or so, at least. The EB110 was a Bugatti-in-name-only, too.

Bugatti in its original incarnation didn't hold a lot of steam after Ettore died.
