Now, all car accidents are usually tragic, with global statistics pointing out 1.3 million deaths a year, car’s kill more people then bullets. The stats don’t stop there where they name a colossal 20-50 million people get injured or disabled yearly because of accidents. With this people have gone as far as calling car’s the real weapons of mass destruction. However, most of the accidents are to be blamed on human error rather than the machines themselves
Back in December, 2011, at the country of the rising sun, there was a great crash of catastrophic proportions. All the car’s except a lonely Prias were exotic supercars. The cars involved were eight Ferraris, one Mercedes Benz and a Lamborghini. The accident happened in the Chugoku highway which is in Western Japan. The total damage was said to be in the regions of £ 2.6 million ($ 4 million).
The supercars were driving in pairs at speeds of 140-160 km/h, which isn’t that over-indulgent, but is enough for an accident. The lead car which was a red Ferrari lost control and the other pair of exotics behind it made up a total of a 14 car pileup. The cars were headed to Hiroshima for a supercar event. Maybe, the silver lining from all this is that no one lost their lives. As much as this adds weight into how exotics are always getting into accidents, the fact everyone made it unscathed is a major boost to their safety.
