Video shows eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and two Mercedes totalled in Japanese crash

Sports car enthusiasts in Japan suffered an embarrassing and costly accident this week, with eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and two Mercedes totalled in a pile-up. Video of the incident’s aftermath, shown on NTV, clearly shows a number of vehicles that look like they’ll be write-offs. The total cost of the destroyed cars is likely to be well over the $1m mark.

No-one was seriously injured in the incident, although ten people were treated for bruises. It’s believed that one of the Ferraris clipped a barrier as it tried to change lanes, triggering the pile-up as the rest of the luxury fleet took avoiding action. It’s believed that all the cars are beyond repair, although a final determination is yet to be made.

The accident happened in Yamaguchi prefecture as the sports car enthusiasts were on their way to Hiroshima. Sports cars are a booming business in Japan, with businessmen willing to pay top dollar for even the most common models.
