According to Forbes, an average motorist or driver will have to file a collision claim at least once every 17.9 years. And only three of every 1,000 accidents are fatalities. But this does not stop any adrenaline junkie from making one stupid decision.
And it doesn’t matter if it’s an ordinary sedan or a super car. Not even the richest Ferrari owner can ever tell when their 458 or F430 might end up in a car wreck. Every Ferrari vehicle costs millions of dollars; which is why it is expected that every Ferrari owner is downright filthy rich.
From multimillion dollar company owners and CEOs to the richest celebrities, every one of these people will always end up showing off their latest toys. And sometimes, some of these Ferrari owners can’t elude from the sad fate of having a scratched paint or worse, a car wreck.
The latest addition to Ferrari’s collection of luxury hypercar is the 950 horsepower hybrid LaFerrari. As expected, this luxury vehicle will never cost less than a million dollars. This $1.4 million hypercar weighs 3,484 lb and is made of four different types of carbon fiber and is powered with the most cutting-edge technology.
The driver seat is attached to the bulkhead to save space and eliminate the need for a sliding mechanism. It has an output of 161 horsepower and 199 ft/lbs of boost to its 789-hp V12 engine. This hybrid hypercar is unlike any other as it adapts its technology from the Formula 1 racing program making it more menacing on the road.
Scuderia Ferrari’s F1 KERS or the Kinetic Energy Recovery System is applied on the LaFerrari. Energy captured by the carbon ceramic regenerative brakes is stored by the KERS and the stored energy is then released to give the LaFerrari maximum acceleration. It has a top speed of 218 mph and can go a quarter of a mile in 9.8 seconds at 150 mph. How cool is that?
Only 499 LaFerraris were ever made, making each one all the more valuable. Hence, it’s always very big news to know that a couple of these bad boys were in a recent accident.
We tally a few of these heart-wrenching accidents that have ever happened to a LaFerrari. These are a few of the Series of LaFerrari Unfortunate Events. Doing the math, there must still be approximately 496 LaFerraris out there, safe and sound. Hopefully there won’t be any accidents for these bad boys.
It might end up on our favourite museums if these things go extinct. Better have the remaining healthy LaFerraris locked up safe and sound from the hands of reckless owners or from Mother Nature’s wrath. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope there won’t be any sequel to LaFerrari’s Series of Unfortunate Events.
