Luxury cars are what we all aspire to. Most of us would die to be able to ride once in a luxury car like a Ferrari. However, most of us will probably never be able to afford such luxurious cars. It’s important to keep in mind that even though these cars are the toys of the rich and famous, they are also pretty dangerous to drive in because of the high speeds they can achieve. So maybe it’s better that you don’t even aim to afford one of these bad boys! You might be a whole lot safer if you never rode in one.
Below, we’re going to go through seven of the most expensive accidents that have happened involving luxury cars like the Ferrari. Keep reading to learn more about caused these accidents.
- Ferrari 1962-64 250 GTO
First up, we’re going to talk about an accident that involved the amazing Ferrari 1962-64 250 GTO. This car was being driven by a British driver in a car race when he crashed into the back of another car. This was in slow traffic. Amazingly, the car was bought for an astounding $28.5 million. This is absolutely incredible and sad that this expensive car was ruined thanks to such a crash.
- Ferrari 250 GT Spyder
Next, we’re going to mention a crash involving the Ferrari 250 GT Spyder, an amazing Ferrari. It’s a little less expensive than the one mentioned in the first point (valued at $10 million when bought). This car was stored near a beach in California, but was destroyed during a strong hurricane. Imagine how disastrous this would be for you to learn about if you were this owner!
- 1959 Ferrari 250 GT TDF
This crash happened in Connecticut at the Lime Rock race track with this $1.65 million model of the 1959 Ferrari. The driver crashed the car into a wall while racing through this historic and infamous track. If you were ever in this kind of crash, you would easily find yourself in the need of a Corpus Christi car accident lawyer.
- Ferrari Enzo
This next accident happened in 2006 at the hands of Bo Stefan Eriksson, a businessman from Sweden. He was driving at an astounding 196 miles per hour on a highway in Malibu when he crashed this amazing car into a pole. There were only about 400 models made of this car, so it was definitely a sad day to see this crash happen.
- Jaguar XJ220
This next crash happened at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which has been named the largest motorsport event in the whole world. The entire front of this over $1 million car was destroyed in this crash. A sad day, indeed.
- Bugatti Veyron
This crash happened in Surrey when Away Soni was driving this car that belonged to his brother. He was going around 100 mph during a rainstorm. This unfortunate crash involved another driver who was seven-months pregnant at the time and just on the way back from the hospital.
- Pagani Zonda
This car crash happened in Hong Kong during December of 2010. A truck was out of control on the road with him and forced him off of the road and into a line of parked cars. The driver was actually just coming back from a racing event, where no such crash happened, so this one is a bit unfortunate. What makes this accident even more sad is the fact that only 100 of these models were ever made.
And there you have it! These are the most infamous car crashes that involved luxury cars. As you can see, these cars are super risky to drive in and can easily crash when you are driving at high speeds. Be careful if you are ever driving in these types of cars!
