Most Expensive Car Wrecks

The biggest loser?



#10. Bugatti EB110 ...   $500,000
Most Expensive Car Wrecks
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 mad
hatter. 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.


#7. Jaguar XJ220 ...   $1.1 Million

The XJ220 once held the record for highest top speed for a production car (217 mph).

#6. Ferrari Enzo ...   $1.3 Million

The most famous Ferrari Enzo crash (shown above) was at Malibu, California in 2005,
when the driver, “Fat Steven” Eriksson crashed the car at 196 mph.


#5. 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.


#4. 1959 Ferrari 250 GT TDF ...   $1.65 Million

This extremely rare classic car, the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT “Tour de France”, crashed
into a wall at the Shell Ferrari-Maserati Historic Challenge in 2003.


#3. 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.


#2. 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.


#1. Tiger Wood's Buick Enclave ...   $55 million and rising

The most expensive car crash ever?
Final estimate to be determined by Elin Nordegren!
