A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO with a value estimated at around $31-million was wrecked over the weekend while touring in France on the way to Le Mans. It's being hailed as the most expensive car accident to date even though one time I hit three of my neighbors' cars in the parking garage and told them my cat did it while high on catnip and doesn't have insurance.
U.S. businessman Christopher Cox was driving his Ferrari 250 GTO through France, en route to Le Mans. He was traveling with a convoy of Ferrari fans, including Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and JCB boss Sir Anthony Bamford.
The car, pictured above, is was worth an estimated $31 million. But when Cox collided with another vehicle in front of him, its value plummeted somewhat; reportedly, the vehicle is a write-off.
I dunno, if I had a $31-million car I'd have a hard time driving it. Not because I don't trust myself, but because you can't trust other drivers. I'd probably just put the thing on display in the living room for all my rich friends to come over and pop boners about while we smoke cigars and see who can fit the biggest wad of $100's in their keister. *rereads* Yep, that's what we'd do alright. No word if dude is kicking himself for not switching to Geico.
Thanks to nikki and Evil Ares, who have Ferraris worth over $100-million but don't like to brag about it because they're afraid somebody will call them out on their lies.
