Ferrari Crashes In $31-Million "Most Expensive Accident"

July 11, 2012


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.

    The story failed to include that he had 5 others in the garage at home, and one more parked in his mega yacht cruising off of the coast. Chump change, my friends.

    31 million dollars car, but the look on his face ..priceless.. well, for someone spending that money on a car..he deserved.. not that he cares so much, I doubt is a matter of life or dead..

    He didn't spend it on the car, he kept and took care of the car and it was estimated at 31 million by the insurance. Big difference, to me it's a priceless classic car we just lost forever!

    Oh, while i believe he didn't pay 31 million, I am pretty sure he spent some millions when he bought the car back in 2005. So , " well, for someone spending that money on a car..he deserved" totally fits ...

  • Deserves it for having it painted like that.

    It looks like it was painted for a PBS kids show. XD
