8 Ferrari's Crash in Japan - Dec. 4 2011

8 Ferrari's and 6 other cars crashed today in western Japan - nobody was seriously injured but what a waste!

At least they weren't BMWs!

I assume it was a Ferrari owners' driving event. How did all eight crash into each other?

Impressive that none of them split in half or burned.

I can't tell but they all look like 355s, except for the one on the right of the 2 red ones touching each other, that sadly looks like an F40, I hope I'm wrong.

White looks like a 512TR and black could be a 430...really hope you're wrong about that F40 though. Would be a sad day

Update: looked it up

http://jalopnik.com/5864856/massive-...-a-lamborghini

"It's slightly difficult to tell from pictures, but the Ferraris involved appear to include multiple F355s, F430s (including a Scuderia), an F360, and some form of F512."

Apparently the guy in front was doing an overtaking maneuver on a curved part of the road where it was wet, causing him to crash into the median thus taking 13 other cars behind him, with him.

Here's a video from the jalopnik page, don't understand the language but you can see the cars a tad bit clearer.

Watched the video the guy in the white 512 was the luckiest. Another two feet and he would have been toast.
