Most Expensive Car Wrecks

9. Bugatti EB110 ... $500,000

This 1992 Bugatti EB110 was being driven by a mechanic as part of its annual checkup. He claims there was an oil slick on the road which caused him to lose control and crash into a pole. The owner of the Bugatti is a famous "feel good" guru named Emile Ratelband. Not sure how good he was feeling after this wreck.




8. Pagani Zonda C12 S - $650,000

Only 15 Zonda C12 S were ever built but that didn't stop this owner from driving it like a bat out of hell. He crashed this beauty in the wee morning hours while driving in Hong Kong.



7. Mercedes Benz SL 300 - $750, 000


The SL 300 "Gullwing" represents the very finest of Mercedes. It is THE classic car. Unfortunately, there's been more than one crash involving this masterpiece. You're looking at a car that was once worth nearly a million dollars. The owner thought it would be a good idea to race it on the streets of Mexico. No, not a street race, but the annual "La Carrera Panamericana" race which is limited to classic cars produced before 1965.



6. Jaguar XJ220 - $1,000,000

Here we have our first million dollar crash (and we're only #7 on the list). The XJ220 once held the record for highest top speed for a production car (217 mph). Along with this speed came a couple of crashes. This first one shows the classic pose of the owner next to the car, dumbfounded by what he just did. This guy is void of all emotion, staring blankly into space, thinking of how he's gonna explain this to the wife.



Here's another crash, this time with more damage. Not only with the car, but the owner's pride. He crashed it in front of all his friends at the golf course. We hope he was able to yell "Fore!" before plowing into the ditch.



#5. Ferrari Enzo - 1.3 million

The Ferrari Enzo sure seems to attract a lot of crashes. This is surprising considering the price tag. You would think the owners would be more careful, but we've documented at least 14 crashes involving the Enzo. That's nearly $20 million worth of crashes! The most famous was the Malibu crash of 2005, when the driver, "Fat Steven" Eriksson crashed the car at 196 mph. Below is the result.



Most of the crashes occurred in California and Dubai (as seen below)



#4. Bugatti Veyron - 1.6 million

The Bugatti Veyron is the most expensive production car in history. And unbelievably, it didn't even make the top three on this list. Only 300 are expected to be produced and already two have crashed. Below is the first one. The driver thought it was okay to speed at 100 mph in the rain. He only had the car for one week.



#3. 1959 Ferrari 250 GT TDF - 1.65 million

Now we start getting into the extremely rare classic cars. The owners who are willing to take these machines on the road are just plain crazy. The ones that take them on the track are even crazier. This 1959 Ferrari 250 GT "Tour de France" crashed into a wall at the Shell Ferrari-Maserati Historic Challenge back in 2003.



#2. Ferrari 250 GT Spyder - 10 million

Just when you thought it couldn't get much more expensive, the damage has been multiplied. The record price for a 1961 250 GT California Spyder at auction was set on May 18, 2008 when a black one was sold for $10,894,900. So what is one doing buried in the sand? The unlucky owner had it stored near the beach when a Hurricane hit.



#1. Ferrari 250 GTO - 28.5 million


We now present you with the most expensive car crash ever. Touted as the Ferrari that most successfully embodies the traits of the marque, the 1962-64 Ferrari 250 GTO became the most valuable car in the world. In 2008 an anonymous English buyer bought a 250 GTO at auction for a record $28,500,000. The crash below represents a car worth more than the combined value of all 14 Enzos involved in accidents. It is simply unbelievable that an owner would even dare take this car on the road. After a track event involving historic cars, the owner of this rare beast rammed into the back of another car after traffic slowed down.




After being presented with this much carnage, we realize you may be going through a lot of emotions. It's okay to break down and cry. We understand LOL

I felt a sense of calm when I saw the Enzo. But when I saw the Veyron it turned into depression towards the misuse of perfection and beauty.

But I do feel better lol
