$4m Super Car Pile-Up in Japan

14 cool cars including 8 Ferraris, 3 Mercedes Benz and a Lamborghini were involved in a pile-up in Japan yesterday. Some hefty car insurance claims on the way!

The accident involved a group of super cars travelling to Hiroshima when one of the Ferraris lost control and caused the crash, according to Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun. Witnesses claimed that the group of luxury cars were travelling over the road's speed limit.

"The whole group of them were going 140-160 kilometres per hour (85-100mph) and then one went into a spin and all the others got pulled into that," an eyewitness said.

The speed limit on the highway was 80 kilometres per hour (50mph).

Fortunately no-one was seriously hurt although 10 people were treated for minor injuries in a crash involving £2.5m worth of luxury cars.

The road was shut for over six hours due to the pile-up as police cleaned up the pieces of the wrecked vehicles.
