USA F31 340ix got taken down as off today by an idiot Lyft Driver.

Some of you guys have been following our build thread of F31 340ix. The car came out glorious and was a blast to drive....until an idiot left driver decided to cross 5 lanes of traffic. Best part of all, his insurance collapsed 10 days ago!

These are some of the before and after pictures.

The car for sure will be restored but it's just sad to see this beauty get smashed liked that. No one was derisively hurt, just mild concussion, face cuts and such. Could have been much worse.

Alex - that car was an amazing build - I can't believe this happened - I know you will restore it to its' original glory (probably better) but as for this incident I am sorry - but grateful no one was hurt too bad / wishing quick recovery to all those that were part of this / for those that are not familiar with this car - can you share some details of your build - it's quite a car and I'm sure people not familiar will be impressed with your one-off creation

DAMN! Hopefully you will be able to sue Lyft for having an uninsured driver. Hope everyone recovers quickly!

That should be mandatory prison time with hard labor.

I am glad you are OK.

By any chance, is the car painted in San Marino Blue?

I wish that was the case, but sadly just few fat tickets for that driver and nothing more.

The color was based on San Marino blue, but we made it a shade darker with slightly bit more perl.

Anytime someone pays homage to SMB color, I will second the motion. Beautiful color!
