In a luxury filled 14 car pile up in Japan 8 Ferraris, 1 Lamborghini, 3 Mercedes and 2 Toyotas were involved in one of the worlds most expensive car crashes in history. These weren’t just dings, bumps or bruises on these cars, some of the luxury vehicles were totaled from front to back. The drivers of the expensive Lamborghini, Ferarris and Mercedes all had different stories from one losing control to wet conditions being the cause.
Interviews from by standers tells a bit of a different story in one of the world’s most expensive car wrecks. One person interviewed by Japanese television said the drivers were driving at up to 100mph (160kph) down the Chugoku Expressway. The roads were still wet from heavy rain that had fallen all day and the mix of supercars, speed and rain pushed one car off into the median.
After the Ferrari veered off into the median it spun to the side causing all the other cars to start to collide with their speed and expensive muscle into a mangled mess of Ferrari, Lamborghini Diablo, Mercedes Benze and a Toyota Prius in complete and outright total destruction. The wreck is estimated to have caused anywhere from $1 million to $4 million in damage. The different types of Ferrari’s were vast with Ferrari F355, Ferrari 360 Modena, Ferarri 355, a Ferarri F512, a Ferarri Testarossa and a Ferrari F430 Scuderia all involved in the wreck.
The drivers didn’t escape unharmed although there were no causalties at the scene. While there weren’t deaths there were bruises, cuts, scraped and 10 people were taken to the hospital by first responders of the Ferarri crash spectacular. The wreck happened at about 10:15am on Sunday morning in Southern Japan.
