Here we have it, the first Lexus LFA to be involved in a car crash. The members of ClubLexus brought this to our attention, where the accident occured in Orlando on October 8th last year. Looks like a common traffic accident to us, since both the front and rear bumper were severely damaged. After the crash, the Lexus LFA was put up for sale at Expo Motor Cars in Houston, Texas. It finally sold this month on January 3rd with only 635 miles on the odometer.
A costly car crash occurred this past weekend in Japan where 14 sports cars piled up. Estimates put this multi-million dollar crash at one of the most expensive highway crashes of all time. They say over $4 million in damages took the toll of 8 Ferraris, 3 Mercedes, a Lamborghini, and 2 Toyotas. Luckily, no one was seriously hurt, only minor cuts and bruises were found after some of the cars were going 150 km/h or 90+ mph on their way to a car show. Drive safe now people!
Check out this car crash video after the jump of a Nissan GTR flying through the streets of Moscow and smashing several parked cars on its way. This occurred on July 6, and was caught by a couple security cameras that have now flooded Youtube. It appears the Nissan GT-R driver was trying to pass another car when it lost a wheel and was sent into a path of destruction for the innocent cars parked on the side of the road. The largest SUV of them all was thrown into the air as the solid construction of the GTR held it together to keep sliding down the road. See the video and more aftermath pictures of the car crash after the jump.
Check out this video from a car crash of a Ford F150 parked on the hood of a 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia. It’s never good to see an exotic like this Ferrari car wrecked from the inexperience of other drivers or the owner himself. It is unknown what exactly happened, but the Ferrari driver said the Ford F-150 jetted out right in front of him. Who knows if the Ferrari 458 was speeding or not, but the accident happened on South Parsons Ave in Brandon, Florida. What’s even worse is the Ferrari was a brand new 2011 model with less than 500 miles on the clock! Hope they have good car insurance, hit the jump to watch the video.
Hopefully this will not be a new trend on the dyno block, but now we have a video of a Mitsubishi EVO falling off the dyno because the guys didn’t strap up the front. Two straps at the front is all that would have been needed to keep this from happening, and there seemed to be at least 10 people watching who were clueless. C’mon man! This better not be a customers car or else the company could go out of business for mistakes like this. Last week we had a video of some tuning company blowing the engine on a tuned Ford Mustang. Fortunately, no one was hurt in either of these accidents, but now its the cars that have to suffer from these idiots mishaps. Now, let’s just hope these guys have some good insurance for crashing the cars.
