Repair bill of Rowan Atkinson's McLaren F1 which was crashed in 2011 was revealed and is the biggest in UK. 910,000 GBP!! (in INR 7,70,22,400/-). Gulp!

Angry First Crash - Ferrari LaFerrari

The inevitable has happened, the first ever LaFerrari accident has been reported in Maranello, Italy. Looks like the truck tail-ended the LaFezza.

Sadly, this is NOT a testmule or company car, but a customer car which was undergoing final testings. Can only imagine the lump in the owner's throat.

Supercars sure do catch fire pretty quickly. All 3 cars were toast after a few minutes.

Here's the first M4 crash. Guess the teen needed a less powerful car.

Not too far away from where I live - Mechanic Crashes Owner’s Ferrari Enzo in CT

https://autos.yahoo.com/news/mechani...120027504.html

Cannot trust even certified mechanics to take of your expensive car????



And meanwhile here is someone who actually gets his Ferrari stuck on the highway because he forgot to put fuel in the vehicle before going for a drive (Celebrity status ensured that the news is spread with a picture)

Can you please tell why is it so, as in why they catch fire so quickly?

Is it because of the use of lightweight materials which rather catch fire quickly or some other reason?

Read that this P1 was crashed on the very next day of the delivery. Car was driven by a 27yr old and the passenger was 24yr old. The passenger's leg was broken.

Source : I believe Mclaren Life or Ferrarichat forum. Not sure though.
