Most Expensive Car Crashes Ever

The Number One most expensive car crash ever may have just happened, and this Ferrari might be #2 most now...
The most expensive car crash ever. At a historic race event, the owner of this rare beast rammed into the back of another car after traffic slowed down.

Touted as the Ferrari that most successfully embodies the traits of the marque, the 1962-64 Ferrari 250 GTO became the most valuable car in the world, surpassing the previous record of 11 million set by the Coburn 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder. In 2008 an anonymous English buyer bought a 250 GTO at auction for a record $28,500,000.

The crash represents a car worth more than the combined value of all 14 Enzos involved in accidents. It is simply unbelievable that an owner would even dare take this car on the road.
The 2nd most expensive
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.
Number 3
This 1959 Ferrari 250 GT "Tour de France" crashed into a wall at the Shell Ferrari-Maserati Historic Challenge back in 2003.
