Tracy Morgan got into an accident in a $2 million Bugatti he just bought

Do you guys have a dream car? That’s the car you imagine you’ll buy when you hit it big. For me it’s a Tesla. If I’m going to spend that much on a car I want it to be able to drive itself. Plus I don’t care how much money I will potentially have, it feels gross to spend more than five figures on a car. What about seven figures though? Tracy Morgan bought a car worth more than my dream home, a $2 million Bugatti, in New York City yesterday. It wasn’t even new! It’s a 2012 Veyron. That’s insane, but he has that amount of cash to spend and it’s his money. Within an hour of driving it off the lot he got sideswiped by an SUV. Page Six has the details. (TMZ also has some photos and news. They claim he’d only had it for 15 minutes before he was hit.)

Just an hour after comedian Tracy Morgan bought a new, $2 million Bugatti in Manhattan Tuesday, a New Jersey driver in a cheap Honda smacked into his luxury ride.

He was driving the ritzy new ride at 42nd Street and 10th Avenue around 1:37 p.m. when a woman in a late-model Honda CRV tried to make a right turn from the left lane and smacked into the “30 Rock” luminary’s fresh-off-the-lot ride, police and witnesses said.

“He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it,” witness Chris Ricciardelli, 31, told The Post. “He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up. It still had a dealer tag.”

Morgan had just bought the pre-owned 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport a few blocks away at Manhattan Motorcars 30 minutes to an hour before the crash, workers there said.

Photos show the Bugatti’s front, driver’s-side wheel well scratched and dented where the cheaper car crashed into it.

Several witnesses blamed the other driver, who had New Jersey plates, but the woman was not charged, according to police.

“She ran into him. She was on her phone,” said a 23-year-old witness who gave the name Antoinette.

Tracy is ok, he complained of hip pain according to a witness who spoke to Page Six, but his rep said that he’s doing fine and is in no pain and he tweeted something similar. He was treated in an ambulance was not transported to hospital. Photos and video back up Page Six’s account that the Honda was in the left lane cutting Tracy’s car off, but Page Six spoke to the other driver and she blamed Tracy, saying he hit her! If she was taking a right turn from the left lane she was in the wrong. Page Six also has video of Tracy going off on the other driver right after the accident, which is totally understandable.

Can you imagine how much it will cost to replace a panel on a freaking $2 million car? Maybe they can buff it out. Just the parts for the Veyron are crazy expensive of course, not to mention the highly specialized labor. It costs $20k for an OIL CHANGE! TMZ reports that there were not visible dents in the car, just scratches. I’ve driven in NYC and question why anyone would want to own an expensive car there. Maybe Tracy wanted an incredible car that was also very safe though. He survived that terrible accident in 2014 where his friend was killed. I’m glad he’s ok.

    How is he so extraordinarily wealthy? That is a huge sum of money to spend on a car

    • runcmc says:

      I just googled his net worth and saw it’s $12 million!?!?! So this car was probably a HUGE splurge for him. He must be absolutely devastated.

    • Mumbles says:

      I think he got a *very* large settlement from Walmart as a result of his injuries resulting from the car crash a few years ago.

      $2 million car. I can’t even fathom how good a car must be to be worth that. (Didn’t Kylie Jenner have one of those for a while?)

  2. runcmc says:

    This is totally more low-cost, but we just bought a Subaru less than a week ago and someone hit it overnight and didn’t leave a note for us. It’s “only” a 27k vehicle (it’s a 2018 used SUV) and we are CRUSHED about it. Like…we didn’t even get to enjoy it for a week before there’s already visible damage, and we’ll have to pay for the repairs unless our neighbor’s camera caught the culprit (doubtful)

    So…I really feel for Tracy. 2 mill for him is probably the equivalent of 27k for us, and we are pretty devastated. That sucks.

    • tealily says:

      I’m so sorry that happened to you. I’ve been a hit and run victim before (just my car, not me in it thankfully), and it’s so infuriating. I hope the damage is just cosmetic!

    • Veronica S. says:

      I was rear-ended by a POLICE OFFICER less than a year after I signed for my first new car, not just a used one for which I paid outright. I was furious at how much it dropped the resale value of my car after we assessed all of the damage.

    • Angry Bird says:

      Can you file a police report? hit and run?

  3. Veronica S. says:

    Mindblowing that the other driver is blaming him. It’s obvious just from the position of the cars that she was the one in the wrong – nobody crosses lanes like that with a right of way unless the other driver is allowing it.

    I admit I do love Tesla cars, too. With my income, I could probably afford the payments on one of the mid-end models because I don’t have a mortgage, but what’s stopping us is the power outlet issue. My house is on a very large hill positioned in a way where it would be impossible to run electric cables out to a car, and our backyard has the same setup. We’d have to do several thousand dollars of alterations to the house and yard, which makes any savings of buying electric pointless.

    • thea says:

      do you have an outlet in your garage? you can plug it into any regular old outlet, it just takes a lot longer than using a supercharger.

      • Veronica S. says:

        The garage isn’t close to the house (it’s at least 200-300 feet up the hill of the back yard), and it’s very small – even a mid-size car would have trouble getting into it, much less backing out safely. The house is OLD, and the electricity has already had to be redone back when it was purchased. It’s just not feasible.

        On the bright side, it isn’t my house, so when I finish grad school and move out, I can always move into a place with electric car access and get a Tesla then lol. Until that day comes, I’m happy with my Honda Civic.

    • lucy2 says:

      There are a lot more options available, but if you can’t park close to a power supply, that would be tricky.

  4. Anna says:

    Did y’all hear about Mena (Main actor from Aladdin) wanting to sue Tesla because he had an accident and claims it’s their fault?

  5. Jb says:

    Of course the other driver in the wrong blames him! I hate irresponsible drivers because besides endangering other ppl they never take responsibility because they’d have to admit to themselves they’re aholes

  6. thaisajs says:

    Look, just because you’re driving a $2 million car, that doesn’t mean you don’t face the same issues as all the rest of us, who spent a hell of a lot less on our rides. I had my new Toyota for a month when some guy rear-ended me while I was at a traffic light. It happens. I certainly didn’t get out of my car, start screaming and banging on the other car’s window. That is not okay. I would have been terrified if someone did that to me.

    Also, I’m not trying to say the other driver was blameless. Looks like she was totally in the wrong and is a crap driver. My point is that he over-reacted and if he’s going to get this wound up, consider not driving a $2M car in NYC.

    • Veronica S. says:

      I can understand why he was angry because her positioning suggests she was absolutely in the wrong, but…yeah, if a man got out of his car screaming “bitch, get out of the car!” and gesturing angrily, I’d likely stay my ass in there with the doors locked until the police arrived. I had the same situation – was rear ended a few months after getting a new, shiny Honda – but like…anger wasn’t going to fix the situation in rush hour traffic. A lot of men just give no thought to how their anger looks to women.

    • eto says:

      He was also in a huge car crash a few years ago where several of his close friends died and he himself almost died so it might be that someone driving recklessly (I think it was an overworked Walmart semi driver that caused the last crash) might have been a trigger for him.

  7. Jaded says:

    I’m glad he is okay but good Lord that is a stupid amount of money to spend on a car. Also I wonder if he is still homophobic??

  8. Lucy2 says:

    I know he got a huge settlement from that terrible accident, but imo that’s the worst way to spend it.
    Glad everyone is ok.

  9. Down and Out says:

    I test drove a Tesla Model 3 (~$35k) a week ago. It is exciting to drive but there’s definitely a learning curve! The regenerative breaking is definitely something you have to get used to or turn off. Overall I found it too much to deal with learning right now so I went with an Outlander PHEV instead. Even with that, I’m having to learn the dimensions for things like parallel parking. You have to handle new cars very, very carefully at first as there’s always something new to learn and/or adjust to.

    • thea says:

      yeah, there is a bit of a learning curve. you can turn on creep or training wheel mode and it’ll drive like a regular car.

  10. Agnes says:

    Oh well, that’s why insurance exists.

    Also, there are 2 million dollar cars out there to buy? Good god. I thought that our 30k Subaru was a splurge. Lol

  11. Mgsota says:

    2 million dollar car is stupid af…driving said 2 million dollar car in Manhattan is insane.

    My hubby just got his first ever brand new car (he’s 48) a 2019 Acura MDX in February. It’s already got some minor scratches…which sucks…but that’s just reality. Which is why I would NEVER spend major dough on a car.

    I also got my first ever brand new car a couple years ago and my hubby ran off the road dodging a deer. Caused $16,000 worth of damage. I had the car less than a year. It was heartbreaking.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Driving in Manhattan in general is insane. A pharmacist I used to work with moved to Manhattan for a position she couldn’t pass up some years back. One of the ways she offset the $3K/mo rent for her apartment was by offloading her vehicle. With the subway system and living right in the middle of Manhattan, for what purposes did she need a car, yeah?

  12. Nancypants says:

    $2 million dollars for a freakin’ car.
    That’s almost criminal.

    I mean, if you got it you can spend it any way you want but considering his history with accidents and people running into him…how ’bout a tank?
    I think he needs a tank.
    Those are street legal, right? ;)

    I like those giant 4×4 Dodge Ram Pick-up trucks.
    They are huge and I saw one pull a trailer with a front-end loader up a mountain once.
    A front-end loader and a trailer up a mountain!?
    Do y’all know how big and heavy those are??

    Maybe one of those for Tracy.
    I think people in NYC would make room for him and if they did hit him, he’d be okay; he probably wouldn’t even notice.

    My dream car would be restored vintage.
    I drive a newer Lincoln and love it (Lucille Lincoln) but I would like one of those big Lincoln or Cadillac convertibles from the ’50s or ’60s.
    Maybe the last one Perry Mason drove.

  13. paranormalgirl says:

    I hate how the quoted article refers to the Honda as a “cheap” car. Most people aren’t going to be able to (or want to) afford a 2 mil car. Bottom line, no matter what you pay for a car, it still has the same purpose. I mean, I love my Volvo, but owning it doesn’t make me a better person than my best friend, who drives a Kia.

    • thea says:

      right, that bugged me too. my dad always says “it’s a car, it gets you from point a to b.”

    • Veronica S. says:

      People really don’t understand how large of an issue transportation is for lower economic classes. Working class people can afford cars, but it takes a hefty chunk out of their paychecks. The poor use buses for a reason, and in areas where public transit isn’t an option, getting from point A to point B can be a serious problem. I have a mid-end model Honda Civic, but I can tell you I would never have bought it had I not moved from my previous job (working class income) to my current position (sturdy middle class) income. Every car I owned up until age 30 or so was a used model car for a reason.

      This being said, even among the upper classes, a $2 million car is outrageously expensive. Most people in the upper middle class to low-end millionaire range wouldn’t go for something that pricey. Most luxury end models are in the six digit range, not the million dollar range. That’s the wheelhouse of the ultra-wealthy.

  14. thea says:

    I have your dream car Celebitchy, but I haven’t tried the autopilot mode yet, lol.

  15. KellySunshine says:

    I feel bad for Tracy and really hope for the other driver that she has good insurance…

    On the Tesla topic: They are self driving cars, right? I’ve seen one up where I live (northern Alberta), but I imagine that they won’t become popular up here because of the issue of how in may (or may not) handle in winter… ( yes, I know that you don’t HAVE to have it in auto pilot mode, but there are some geniuses out there that would assume it was okay to use auto pilot when the roads are covered in snow. Sometimes you just follow the tracks made in the show by the cars in front of you, and not actually the lines painted on the ground… :) )

    • Nancypants says:

      One of my young workers got an assignment to Alaska.
      Now, I lived in AK for years and she said she needed a new, good car.

      The guys and I said we would go with her to find a good, slightly used car w great tires for AK and she was planning to drive the ALCAN alone no less.

      She walked in the next day and said she bought a new car; a KIA.

      One of the guys said, “Do you know what KIA stands for? Killed In Alaska.”

      The type of car does make a difference. It doesn’t have to be expensive but it needs to fit the climate.

    • Dazed and confused says:

      I can’t imagine what happens to your insurance premiums when you hit a $2 million car. Shudder!

      That said, that car is wasted in NYC. If he was just taking it home after buying it and doesn’t live in NYC, he should have had them deliver it on a flatbed truck!

  16. AnnaNotherthing says:

    I’m with ParanormalGirl being annoyed at a Page 6 for repeatedly calling the Honda cheap. I think the word they wanted was sensibly-priced.

  17. Kevin Simmons says:

    I just watched the story on Inside Edition,and from the footage her dumb behind knew better than to try to make a right turn in a left lane but to try to blame him and offer a weak apology she’s lucky he didn’t do more than just call her out of her name.Also this is the main reason why I wouldn’t even drive there are too many distracted idiots on the road not realizing that they have the power of life and death from the decisions that are made from behind the wheel.

  18. raincoaster says:

    That woman will have to sell her house to pay for the repairs, and YUUUUP, this was on her.

  19. Jag says:

    It’s his money and he can do what he wants, but when I see people spending that kind of money on something so superficial, it makes me wonder what kind of people they are.

    There are plenty of good, safe cars out there for significantly less money.

    If I were going to spend that amount, I’d be building my dream monolithic dome home with full aquaponic, off-grid setup. Not buying something that someone could crash into and ruin in just a few seconds.
