Supercar Crashes

Money can buy you a Supercar, but it can't buy you driving skill!

Interesting little compilation:

That's given me some festive cheer! I do feel sorry for the poor innocents in that video, especially the poor woman almost rammed in casino square.

I seem to remember the chap that did that actually did it on purpose for an insurance scam.

So much for supercars. My 330d remapped had tons of torque and the stability control never let any of that happen no matter how badly i drove it.

Yes but if you have a supercar you have to turn off the traction and stability control!

Some complete and utter tools in there... some people have the cars just because they can afford them - which doesn't automatically make them petrol heads or give them any level of skill! Thankfully natural selection will take care of most the tw@s without us needing to lift a finger

The RR crash on the bridge was from the gumball a few years back and a number of other clips are certainly a few years old - not sure I'd call it a 2015 compilation!

With all this dash cam evidence now how do the insurance companies deal with these claims where the driver was clearly breaking the speed limit or driving dangerously? I can see that the Bugatti was deliberately driven into the water so clear fraud but several crashes were clearly due to speed or careless driving.

You can use another persons dash cam against them.

The police can use it and others video as evidence of dangerous driving.

Proving fraud would likely be harder, unless they capture a number of attempts.

Some scammers were jailed recently, the footage from their own cctv was used as evidence, showed them damaging cars.

Garage List
As said proves that cash can't buy skill or common sense

Do wonder how many of those cars were rentals though.

We had a wedding near us a couple of months ago and it looked like a super car show room with the numbers of Ferraris Audi Porsche lambhorginis etc etc on the road. Majority were being driven by youngish looking lads whose testicles had only just dropped and were struggling to reverse or low speed manoeuvre their steeds

Can't imagine them being able to rent / insure etc those cars legitimately.

Not watched it yet (honest) but I hope that Veyron that just drives into a lake at high speed is in it.




Edit: Yup present and correct.
