WreckedExotics.com — 'It's like watching a supermodel fall off the runway'


That's what Gregg Fidan, founder of the website WreckedExotics.com, which features just that — photos of dream cars reduced by crashes to smoking heaps — told Wall Street Journal reporter Jennifer Saranow in a story which appeared in yesterday's paper.

It's no wonder stuff happens, what with vehicles like the $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron — with 1001 horsepower, a top speed of 253 mph and a 0 to 60 time of 2.5 seconds — in the hands of overconfident amateur drivers pushing their cars to speeds even professionals couldn't handle.

Here's a link to a video which accompanied the newspaper article.

The caption to the photo up top reads, "One participant in last year's Gumball rally crashed his purple Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster in Thailand. As it was going down an incline at more than 100 mph, it went over a 'massive' bump that sent it flying. When it landed, the right front wheel buckled and the vehicle spun off into the trees, taking down a few. It conveniently landed perfectly parked in a bar parking lot."

I love how the automated roll bars deployed themselves - look at the rather square blocks behind each seat - cool huh?
