A multi-car pile-up in Japan has resulted in what could be recognized as one of the world's most expensive car crashes ever. Yesterday morning, at 10:16am (local time) a total of 14 vehicles were involved in an exotic fleet accident on the Chugoku Expressway, which was wet from rain, in the south-west of Japan. The 14 cars involved in the accident included eight Ferraris (with the likes of a F512, F355, F430 and 360 Modena), three Mercedes, two Toyotas, a Nissan Skyline GT-R and a Lamborghini Diablo. Luckily for all involved there were no serious injuries, however, 10 individuals did sustain bruising and minor injuries.
The accident occurred when one 60-year-old Ferrari driver was switching lanes and lost control of the vehicle. The driver could face up to three months in jail or a fine as hefty as 100,000 yen ($1,300).
Many of the vehicles have already been declared as written off, leaving owners heartbroken as their pride and joys have been turned to expensive scrap metal.
