One of the most expensive car accidents in history occurred on August 23 near the town of Farningham in the county of Kent, UK. A car transporter carrying 10 luxury supercars overturned on the A20 motorway while en route to the nearby Brands Hatch circuit. Police officers at the scene determined that the trailer being pulled by the truck had flipped over, and some of the cars had ended up on the road. The driver of the heavy vehicle suffered minor injuries, but the same cannot be said for the cargo it was carrying.
According to initial reports, 9 out of the 10 supercars were seriously damaged, and the extent of the damage is still being assessed but is expected to exceed one million euros. Images from the scene show a variety of supercars, including a Lamborghini Aventador, a Jaguar F-Type Cabrio, two Ferrari F430s, an Audi R8, a BMW 318i Sport Plus, a Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, an Aston Martin DB11, a Nissan GT-R R35, and an overturned Bentley Continental GT.
The expensive supercars were supposed to be transported to the nearby circuit where their owners were set to enjoy a weekend of fun. Instead, they will be heading to the repair shop for costly and extensive repairs. The police have not yet disclosed the cause of the accident, but it is highly likely that it was due to a driver error resulting in the loss of control of the heavy transport vehicle.
