A car crash on the Chugoku Expressway near Shimonoseki, Japan is being touted as the most expensive car crash ever.The wreck took the lives off 8 Ferraris – a couple of 355s, one F430, one F430 Scuderia, a couple of 360s – a Lamborghini, three Mercedes-Benzes, a Prius, an unidentified Toyota and then some other cars that were apparently not expensive enough to mention. There were no human deaths, but 10 people sustained minor injuries.
The supercars were being driven from Hiroshima to Kyushu along the China Road. The accident is understood to have happened after one of the Ferrari drivers lost control on a wet road. Witness accounts suggest the lead driver, a 60-year-old businessman in a Ferrari F430 Scuderia tried to change lanes, possibly to get around a slower car, then slid into the guardrail and spun across the highway. The other cars collided while trying to avoid hitting his car.
