It’s a good thing you guys are on MBWorld and not one of those shady enthusiast sites, because this is what can happen when you run with the wrong internet crowd. Automotive enthusiasts in southwest Japan, who met up via a forum, found their precious supercars turned into twisted sheet metal when the leader of the pack (not a Mercedes driver, obviously) turned out to be a really bad leader. Skip past the jump to see footage of the aftermath from one of the most expensive car crashes ever!
Witnesses say the supercars were traveling around 90mph when the lead
driver tried to make a pass and spun himself right into the guardrail.
Since the road was a tight two lane highway with no shoulder, and since
the cars were supposedly traveling in couples, there wasn’t time or
space to avoid the sights you see below, even for the trusty Prius, who
was probably not going to the same auto show as everyone else involved.
There’s no report yet on what kind of Benzes were involved. Fortunately,
while a few drivers were hospitalized for cuts and bruises, no one was
seriously hurt. But it sure hurts to look at.
What do you think? Should we feel bad for these guys? Shout off in the forums!
