Police in Japan think speed is likely the cause of a pileup that could be one of the most expensive car crashes ever.
Reports indicate that the cars involved include eight Ferraris, a Lambourghini, two Mercedes Benzes and a Toyota Prius.
Is it just me, or did I just hear a faint chorus of that Sesame Street song, “One of these things is not like the other?”
Not that I’m trying to knock the Prius; I like them, even if they are shaped a little funny. I’ve driven one, and for what it is, it’s an impressive machine. But I think in this particular collection, the Prius might have been out of its league.
The U.K.’s Telegraph reports that up to £2.6 million in “supercars” tried to become one with each other. That translates into roughly $4.08 million in American money.
A fool and his money, the saying goes, are soon parted. If you can afford that much automobile, I hope you can afford the insurance to make it right.
If not, traveling in a convoy of excess probably isn’t the best idea you could come up with.
