Well Damn: Exotic Car Pileup In Japan

This week 13 exotic sports cars and a Prius were involved in a very pricey pileup in Japan, With 8 Ferraris, 3 Mercedes, A Lamborghini Diablo, Nissan GTR and a Prius ranking up about $4 million without the Prius.
But local authorities say it likely wasn’t a case of “The Fast and the Furious.”
Although the investigation is continuing, based on initial interviews, the type of the damage the vehicles suffered and injuries, authorities said they don’t believe the cars were burning rubber as per the highway throwdowns made famous in the street racer movie series.
Instead, wet road conditions may have caused the first car, a Ferrari driven by a 60-year-old male, to slip on the two-lane highway and smash into a guard rail. Cars behind then added to the pile-up as they tried to screech on the brakes.

That sucks so much the car in the pile up were Two Ferrari 355s, two Ferrari 360s, two Ferrari 430s (one of which was a rare Scuderia variant), and a Ferrari 512 were totalled in what has been described as one of the most expensive pileups in history.
