The one who is able to pay for it has the greatest chances of being behind the wheel of a supercar. True, solvency does not always mean good driving skills, but even people with straight arms are not immune from anything. After all, when there are many hundreds of horsepower under the pedal, the cost of an error can be very high. In all senses.

A rare Hennessey Viper Venom 1000TT, produced by an American tuning studio in only 15 copies, got into a serious accident in Sochi. The accident happened in Dagomysky lane - the driver lost control and crashed into a tree.

From the impact, the car tore out the wheel along with the suspension parts, the front part was smashed into chips, and the passenger door fell off. But just 4 days before the accident, the owner posted an advertisement for the sale of the car on Avto.ru!

For a Viper with a declared mileage of 3,000 km, he asked 12,500,000 rubles. The huge price tag is due to the fact that under the hood of the Hennessey Viper Venom 1000 TT is a heavily modified 8.4-liter V10 with two turbines producing 1130 hp. Such a car can accelerate to "hundreds" in 2.5 seconds. Apparently, this also caused the accident - according to rumors, a car service employee broke the car …

One of fifteen Gemball-built supercars based on the Porsche Carrer GT was involved in an accident right in downtown Manhattan. The incident took place on April 7, when there were almost no cars on the streets of the city.

Behind the wheel of the supercar, which crashed into several parked cars, was 33-year-old millionaire Benjamin Chen, an exotic car collector and co-founder of GoldRush Rally, which offers wealthy customers exclusive tours of America's reserved roads.

From the impact, the mid-engined supercar lost its right wing, the luggage compartment cover located in front and was practically left without a bumper, but this did not bother the driver. Chen tried to continue driving, but was detained by the police. Subsequently, it turned out that he was in a state of intoxication.

The number 830 of the 918 hybrid supercars Porsche has built is a massively unlucky one. He got into a serious accident, the circumstances of which are not too obvious, and then thundered into an online auction specializing in the sale of automotive "recyclable materials". We are talking about broken cars and stolen cars that were found, but for which the owner has already received insurance.

There were few hunters at a reasonable price to buy the broken 918 Spyder: they had to put it up for sale at least twice. The cost of restoring a supercar is estimated at $ 600,000. And how many man-hours it will take to restore a unique hypercar is hard to imagine.

A rare C8 roadster produced by the Dutch company Spyker in 2014 met with a Riga lamp post. The result of contact in the photo: the body panels on the starboard side are seriously damaged and the suspension is broken. Perhaps the geometry also moved out.

The restoration of an exclusive car, equipped with a 400-horsepower 4.2-liter V8 from the executive sedan Audi A8, is unlikely to cost as much as reviving a Porsche 918. However, it is not at all excluded that, upon seeing the invoice for the repair, the owner decided to spend the anything else.

The impressive flight into the Nurburgring fence took place on the Koenigsegg One: 1 trials. The hypercar crashed into a metal barrier at a speed of 170 km / h, flew 22 meters (literally flew), turned around and landed on the left rear wheel. And after that it also caught fire.

The fire occurred due to the fact that the carbon fiber frame came into contact with the red-hot elements of the exhaust system. At the same time, everything ended well for the test driver: he managed to get out from behind the wheel himself and did not receive serious injuries.

The manufacturer believed that the reason for the accident was the incorrect operation of the ABS sensor: because of this, the front wheels were blocked at a speed of 170 km / h. By the way, they even managed to restore the car!

In order for this Koenigsegg CCX to be left in ruins, no turns and elevation changes of the "Green Hell" were required - an ordinary Mexican road was enough. The accident occurred in 2016 near the city of Nuevo Laredo, about 15 km from the Mexican-American border. At high speed, the 817-horsepower hypercar hit the side of the road and rolled over several times.

Despite the fact that the car was actually sorted into separate parts, the drivers and passenger survived! At the time of multiple rolls, this CCX was on the public sale and asked for $ 1.4 million.

The ultra-rare Aston Martin One-77, produced in an edition of 77 cars between 2009 and 2012, was crashed in 2012 in China. The reason - you can't imagine more banal: hitting a curb at high speed. At the same time, it is reported that the car was practically new. That is - this is one of the last copies of this model, assembled at the plant in Gaydon! At the same time, all Aston Martin One-77s were sold out a year before the premiere. The owner probably had to be especially annoyed - it was so unsuccessful to "update" the long-awaited purchase …

In February 2015, a Pagani ZondGJ hypercar was seriously injured in an accident in a London industrial area. Its driver could not cope with the 594-horsepower coupe and rammed a metal fence. The fence was crumpled, and the supercar received destroyed sidewalls and a whole mountain of bushes on the hood. No people were hurt.

At the same time, according to the Daily Telegraph, it is unlikely that the owner was driving a car that had no license plates. This assumption is supported by the fact that a company engaged in detailing and finishing of supercars is located not far from the accident site. True, its representatives denied that any of its employees were involved in the accident. Which, in general, is natural: who would not deny ?!

Millionaires are people too, and supercars are cars too. Therefore, even without an accident, the venerable and legendary Ferrari F40 from the eighties can ignite and burn to ashes right on a city street, like an elderly Zhigul with a leaky gas line in a traffic jam on the Moscow Ring Road.

A fire involving an F40 occurred in Monaco. The mid-engined supercar's engine bay was engulfed in flames, according to eyewitness footage that he posted on Instagram on February 18. It also burned profusely under the bottom of the car: this suggests a fuel leak.

The supercar created for the anniversary of the Italian company once became famous due to the fact that it became the first road car to accelerate to 320 km / h. And everyone wanted this coupe! Due to high demand, instead of the initially planned 400 copies, the company from Maranello produced 1315 cars in 1987-1992. It was also the last Ferrari to be created under the leadership of the founder of the company, Enzo Ferrari. In short, each copy is worth its weight in gold! Or about 1-1.5 million euros.

The LaFerrari is much more modern than the F40. And even more exclusive. The first hybrid Ferrari produced 710 copies (500 coupes and 210 roadsters). And one 963-strong monster died ingloriously in California.

October 2018. This Ferrari LaFerrari has lost its front end in Beverly Hills. According to a witness to the incident, who filmed the consequences of the accident and posted the entry on Instagram, the passenger of the car was not fastened and flew out of it from the impact. However, photographs released a little later by the local police cast doubt on this version: if only because the windshield remained intact.

Electric supercar Rimac Concept One with a capacity of 1224 hp and was destroyed at the cost of a million dollars during the filming of the second season of the 2017 Grand Tour. One of the presenters, Richard Hammond, drove an innovative car created in Croatia and bounced off the road in a sharp bend during a hillclimb race.

Since there was practically no curb and the terrain was hilly, the car rolled down the slope and caught fire. Fortunately, Hammond is unharmed and continues to lead The Grand Tour with Jeremy Clarkson and James May.This should greatly delight the owners of the same cars, because after that there are only six Concept One alive, which means that each of them is now more expensive.

The famous British actor Rowan Atkinson, also known for his passion for rare and fast cars, crashed his 627-horsepower, extremely rare McLaren F1… twice!

Atkinson purchased the supercar in 1997, and the first accident happened two years after the purchase. The damage was minor: Atkinson just caught up with the Austin Metro subcompact in traffic. But in 2011 everything was much tougher.

It rained in Cambridgeshire that day, and the car spun on the wet surface and was thrown off the track. He crashed into a pole and a tree. As a result, the rear of the car was practically destroyed. Rowan Atkinson was able to get out from behind the wheel on his own, he was taken to the hospital with a shoulder injury.

McLaren looked like it could not be restored, but Atkinson achieved a record UK insurance premium of £ 910,000 and repaired it! The car was resurrected by McLaren itself. In 2015, the battered supercar was sold to another UK resident for £ 8 million, or $ 12 million at the then exchange rate. Rowan Atkinson drove over 65,000 kilometers in his McLaren and, by his own admission, liked the car very much.
