In my opinion, the best part of being super rich must be owning a bunch of insanely expensive sports cars. Most people will never see your $20 million house or know that you're wearing a million dollar watch. Whether it's a Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini or a Maybach, everyone instantly recognizes the sheer awesomeness of a car that costs more than the average american home.
That's what makes it impossible to take your eyes off this video compilation of insanely expensive cars crashing. Check it out for yourself and see what I mean:
I tried to add up the total estimated damage but lost track pretty quick. How much money do you think was lost in total in that video? Hopefully all the drivers had insurance!
Actually there's actually a really interesting story behind the first video in the compilation of the $2 million Bugatti Veyron crashing into the lake seen here in it's original full form:
The driver was a Texas man named Andy House who stated in his insurance claim that he was "swerving to avoid a pelican while attempting to pick up his cell phone that he dropped". Even more suspiciously, Mr. House left the rare super car in the water for 15 minutes with the engine running after the crash. Leaving the engine idling in water that long guaranteed that the car would be absolutely totaled by the time anyone could attempt to recover it from the lake. In the months after the crash two things happened that exposed Andy for a fraud:
1) A man came forward claiming that a few weeks prior to the crash, Andy tried bribing the guy to "steal" his car and crash it into a lake.
2) His insurance company saw the video of the crash that a random motorist filmed and posted to youtube. In the video, as you can see for yourself, there is no sign of a pelican distracting Mr. House. In fact it seems pretty clear that he was perfectly under control then calmly swerved into the lake.
Andy House is now being sued for fraud and could not only forfeit the $2 million insurance money, but could also face real jail time! A trial date has not been set yet.
