5 most expensive crashes in the world

In our line of work – we see a lot of damaged cars…. but nothing like these crashes. Wait until you see the eye watering repair bills.

crashesBugatti Veyron

This sixteen cylinder 1001hp was under the helm of a so called bird enthusiast who drove into a saltwater marsh. With an estimated repair bill of $1,600,000 – $2,200,000 USD that’s an expensive day out!

 

 

 

acrash5Ferrari 250 GTO

With the car in front of him stopping short, this Ferrari, that is worth more than most countries GDP, made a crunch heard around the world.

Now this absolute treasure will cost $30,000,000 – $35,000,000 USD to repair. And no, we didn’t mess up the commas in this one!

 

 

acrash2McLaren F1

Even though Rowan Atkinson’s McLaren F1 survived both crashes, they cost Mr Bean $1.4 million USD in repair bills. Unsurprisingly, he sold the car.

 

 

acrash3Mercedes-Benz 300SLS

It cost $7.5 million to repair the damage sustained by Jochan Mass’ Mercedes-Benz 300SLS and a Lister when they collided at the Salvadori Cup during 73rd Goodwood Member’s Meeting.

McLaren P1

Very few people get to drive a McLaren P1 at the age of 27 and even less get to crash it. The first P1 crash in America happened in Dallas, Texas in the summer of 2014. It involved a 27 year old driver who’d had the $1.1-million dollar car for less than a day.
