The Most Expensive Car Crash in History

The Most Expensive Car Crash in History

Sunday morning eight Ferraris, three Mercedes and a Lamborghini were caught up in a 14-car pile-up on the Chugoku Expressway in southern Honshu, western Japan.

The cars were traveling at over 90mph, when one of the drivers lost control of his vehicle while trying to change lanes on the wet, slippery road. The trailing cars couldn’t avoid the vehicle, that went spinning after hitting the barrier.

Ten people (five men and five women) were taken to hospital, but no one was seriously injured.

This is probably the most expensive car crash in history, with a combined value of over $4 million.

 

[Video] Ferrari California Crashes in Bulgaria

It amuses saddens us deeply whenever some uncautious driver crashes his Ferrari in an attempt to show off to bystanders.

And that is exactly what happened in the following video: two drivers are cruising along the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria in their Ferrari Californias, when one of the two turns into a corner with an heavier-than-necessary foot (and quite possibly the wrong manettino setting) and ends up crashing his 250k$ convertible. There is also a video of the aftermath showing the full extent of the damage.
