TOKYO (AP) — An outing of luxury sportscar enthusiasts in Japan ended in an expensive freeway pileup — smashing a stunning eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and two Mercedes likely worth more than $1 million together.

Police say they believe the accident Sunday was touched off when the driver of one of the Ferraris tried to change lanes and hit the median barrier. He spun across the freeway, and the other cars collided while trying to avoid hitting his car.

Video of the crash aired by NTV, a major national network, showed several smashed, bright red Ferraris cluttering the freeway.

Even a used Ferrari in Japan can fetch $100,000 or more, meaning the total damage may be $1 million or more.

Police declined to comment on the total amount of damage, but said some of the vehicles were beyond repair.

NTV quoted the driver of one of the tow trucks brought in to clear the scene as saying it was the most expensive crash site he had ever seen.

No one was seriously injured, but police in Yamaguchi prefecture said 10 people were treated for bruises and cuts. Police say 14 cars were involved altogether.

The luxury cars were all in one place because they were being driven by a group of automobile enthusiasts on their way to nearby Hiroshima.

Need to tame that black stallion within all of us Ferrari fanatics? Then you must book a flight to Middle East kingdom of Abu Dhabi. No long a desert oasis mentioned causally in the Garfield comic stripe, Abu Dhabi is now a thriving gem along the Persian Gulf and like its neighbor Dubai, a favorite playground for the rich and famous. Where else would they construct an amusement park dedicated to Ferrari?

Covered an area that would fit 7 football stadiums, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the world’s largest indoor amusement park. Another world’s largest, the Ferrari emblem on its roof, measured 65-meter (213 feet) in length or about an area of 7 basketball courts combined. However, an amusement park is all about its rides and Ferrari World boasts some of the best. The centerpiece is Formula Rossa. Clocked at 150 mph, it is the world’s fastest roller coaster. The premise is to induce the same G-force a real Formula 1 driver would experience during competition. There are also more kid-friendly aspect, such as a children driving school with kid-size Ferrari F430 GT Spiders and a carousel with Ferrari prototype cars. But with so much activities, we would be surprise if you book your flight for one-way trip only. via: Fast Company
