Eight Ferraris and a Lamborghini were part of a 14-car crash in Japan yesterday that wrecked more than $1 million of vehicles.
The accident occurred when the driver of a red Ferrari was switching from the right lane to the left and skidded, said Mitsuyoshi Isejima, executive officer for Yamaguchi Prefecture Expressway Traffic Police unit. "It was a gathering of narcissists." The drivers were aged between 37 and 60 years old, he said.
Edit to fix punctuation translations.
Reports have the total damage closer to US$4MM.
Also in the accident were 3 Mercedes, a Skyline GT-R, and a Prius.
That's even more awesome. I need a better news service.
They wrecked a Prius!?!?!??!
Oh the humanity a Prius. I didn't read the article don't need to as I would be saddened by the destruction of such beautiful vehicles but I bet the Prius was the accident cause
GMA reported 8 Ferraris, a lambo, 3 benzDamage $4 million us dollars
Would be hilarious if they all had the same insurance.
They just might actually. I don't know about Japan but not everyone insures those types of cars.
I see groups like that fairly often (they always seem to drive in packs on the weekends for some reason) but they are never driving fast enough to wreck. On the one hand it's kinda cool actually seeing these things driven but on the other hand they couldn't have been going that fast. At least not fast enough to crash. Around here most guys who drive sports cars (and bikes for that matter) don't have much in the way of driving talent. Go figure.
From the article I read yesterday, it was one of the ferrari owners who lost control.
Let's see... Ferraris, a Lamborghini, and it occurred in Japan?
Wow, bad drivers in Asia. I am so shocked!
That's what you get when you don't study enough math
Video Update, the aftermath:
You should post these in the Aw Shoot thread.
How has there not been a single asian drivers joke?!
Wouldnt be japan without someone driving a Skyline.
