#10. Bugatti EB110 – $500,000
This 1992 $500,000 super-exotic Bugatti EB110 was being driven by a mechanic as part of its annual checkup. He claims there was an oil slick on the road which caused him to lose control and crash into a pole. The owner of the Bugatti is a famous ‘feel good’ guru named Emile Ratelband. Not sure how good he was feeling after this wreck.
#9. Pagani Zonda C12 S – $650,000
Only 15 Zonda C12 S were ever built, but that didn’t stop this owner from driving it like a madhatter. He crashed this beauty in the wee morning hours while driving in Hong Kong.
#8. Mercedes Benz SL 300 – $950,000
The SL 300 ‘Gullwing’ represents the very finest of Mercedes. The owner thought it would be a good idea to race this million dollar car on the streets of Mexico, at the annual ‘La Carrera Panamericana’ race – limited to classic cars produced before 1965.
#4. Bugatti Veyron – $1.6 Million
The Bugatti Veyron is the most expensive production car in history. Only 300 are expected to be produced, and already two have crashed. Above is the first one. The driver thought it was okay to speed at 100 mph in the rain. He only had the car for one week.
#2. Ferrari 250 GT Spyder – $10.9 Million
The record price for a 1961 250 GT California Spyder at auction was set on May 18, 2008 when a black one was sold for $10,894,900. So what is one doing buried in the sand? The unlucky owner had it stored near the beach when a Hurricane hit.
#1. Ferrari 250 GTO – $28.5 Million
The 1962-64 Ferrari 250 GTO became the most valuable car in the world. In 2008 an anonymous English buyer bought a 250 GTO at auction for a record $28.5 Million. The crash above represents a car worth more than the combined value of all 14 Enzos (see #6 above) involved in accidents. After a track event involving historic cars, the owner rammed into the back of another car after traffic slowed down.
