Title: luxury crashes
Post by: IORIâ„¢ on August 05, 2013, 06:07:36 AM
Over the times, we only talked about the power, style and stunning beauty of the expensive and limited edition luxury sports cars manufactured by some of the noted automakers, but this time, we will talk about the on-road crashes of these ultra-expensive beauties, and its aftermaths. Last year, an outing of luxury sports car enthusiasts ended in one of the most expensive high-speed freeway pileup in Japan; smashing a convoy of 11 luxury cars including eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and two Mercedes. And, it seems like the year 2012 is also turning out to be car crash-friendly. Here, are some of the few picks of the very latest and most expensive supercar crashes involving million dollar cars.

The ultra-rare and most sought-after supercar, Aston martin One-77, standing on top on our list of the world’s most expensive cars, is now even rarer as one of just 77 units ever produced is already dead following reports of a tragic high-speed crash that occurred last week in Hong Kong, China. Considerably new, the car involved in this tragic accident was reported to be one of the last units to be produced. Considering the carbon-fiber construction of this $1.7 million car, its repair is expected to cost pretty high and is expected to be shipped back to the Britain for further damage assessment.

Sherry Jackson, the star who played Andrea in the original ‘Star Trek’ series back in the 1960s rear-ended a 2011 Mustang while she was driving her sleek white 2006 Porsche Cayman in Norwalk, California. However, the reports about the amount of damage and if Sherry Jackson got injured are still unclear

In the Russian city of Saint Petersberg, a tuned Lamborghini Murcielago got involved in an accident and damaged five other cars sharing the road. Reportedly, this 641hp supercar accelerated heavily and driver lost control which resulted the crash into three parked cars, along with the hitting of Lexus with a BMW. However, after looking at the cars condition, it doesn’t look like if anybody got hurt.

Thor Batista, the son of business tycoon Brazil’s richest man, Eike Batista ran over a cyclist in his Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren over Washington Luiz highway outside Rio de Janerio in March this year. While driving, 20 years old billionaire heir hit a 30-year old Wanderson Pereira, which led to his immediate death. However, Thor survived the tragic rash with some minor cuts in the arm and chest but is summoned to testify as part of the investigation. Also, the Thor family has announced that will bear the costs of the victim’s funeral.

Rowan Atkinson’s insurance company have had to shell out as much as $1.4 million to repair his ultra-expensive McLaren F1, making it the biggest car insurance bill ever recorded in Britain. The ‘Mr. Bean’ star obtained a shoulder injury when he crashed his car into a tree. Notably, Atkinson’s machine that drives at 240 mph spent almost a year in the hands of McLaren’s expert technicians. And, the result was a $1.4 million bill for a supercar which cost him around $1 million back in 1997, which is 3-times as much as the previous most expensive repair claim. Now almost 16 months after the accident, the driving enthusiast is back in the driving seat.
