The driver, Andy Lee House of Lufkin, TX, plead guilty to intentionally drive the expensive Veyron into a lake to get an insurance payout.

House's "accident" in November 2009 was highly publicized after two teenagers caught the whole thing on their camera and posted it on YouTube. It now emerged he purchased the car for $1 million and insured it for $2.2 million. His plan was to total the Bugatti, pay back the loan and keep the rest. After crashing it, House kept the engine running and thus made sure it gulped enough salt water to damage it beyond repair.

The fraudster initially claimed he was distracted by a low flaying pelican before saying he was in fact distracted by a phone. The court didn't believe his excuses and he now faces up to 20 years in prison.
