Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa Crashed In Miami

Quote:
The model, known as the Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa, was built especially for Kris Singh, an American businessman and avid car collector, who is worth approximately $200million.

Singh was driving his supercar on Collins Avenue, in Miami Beach, "when someone pulled out from a side street and hit the rear passenger side". The owner claims not to have broken the speed limited and praises the Huayra, which "is built unbelievably strong", as he "didn't feel a thing".

"I do not drink alcohol, I do not do any drugs or take any prescription medication and this was in no way my fault", added the driver, who was "thankful that no one got hurt", despite the other vehicle is in a more severe condition than the Huayra.

Speaking of which, the "La Monza Lisa" has a missing wheel and a scratched rear carbon fiber quarter panel, but its owner claims that damages appear to be cosmetic only and states that the supercar will be back on the road, in its former state, in no time.

It's really sad when your ride gets damaged because of another person's fault. But it is inevitable and good to know that this exotic will be back of the road. This is the same guy that also has a Lamborghini Veneno if I remember correctly.

BMW i8 Rolled Over By Cement Mixer Truck In California

Quote:
In what can only be described as a freak accident, a BMW i8 was crushed by a cement mixer truck in Newport Beach, California this morning, yet amazingly, no one was killed.

Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Larry Kurtz told the LA Times that a 40-year-old man and a 49-year-old woman were transported to the hospital with “moderate injuries”, while a 50 year-old man was initially taken to the hospital in “critical condition, but he has since improved”.

According to authorities, the accident happened Thursday morning at around 8:40 a.m. when a gardening truck collided with a cement truck, which then tipped over onto an offramp crushing the BMW i8 hybrid sports car.

A Porsche crashed into a Swift while reversing in a parking lot. And this isn't an Indian crash.

Ouch! That was a seriously stupid crash. Just wondering - was it a valet driver who could not control the Porsche?

Being a rear-engined model, I don't think the Porsche will be driveable. I would love to see the condition of the Swift and the Porsche after the crash.

Unfortunately no pictures! But here is an interesting explanation and I think this is the first of its kind in the forum. The comment is added by the uploader itself so it seems legit.

Pagani Huayra crashed by football star Christiano Ronaldo. This image is a scene from the new Nike ad, so not exactly sure if it was Ronaldo who actually crashed it but the scene is part of the ad:

That is horrific, looks like it exploded from within and scattered pieces all around. How is such disintegration even possible?
