$2 Million McLaren F1 Goes Up in Flames,burns up on Airport Boulevard..


A $2 Million 1995 McLaren F-1 Coupe was destroyed today after the engine caught fire. The owner had not driven the car in 6 months which probably explains why it had engine problems. There were only about 100 Mclaren F1's produced and at least 6 have been destoyed in crashes. This one happened on Airport Blvd in Santa Rosa, CA.

Smoke began billowing from the back of the exotic sports car as it travelled down Airport Boulevard late Monday morning. By the time the driver had exited through his gull-wing door to check on the trouble, flames had engulfed the rear.
The car, with Oregon license plates, was owned and driven by Irv Kessler, 53, of Minnesota. But he declined to discuss the incident.

“It hadn’t been driven in six months,” said John Lantz, Rincon Valley assistant fire chief. “They took it out yesterday and today and started having some kind of problem with it,” Lantz said he was told by Kessler.

As Kessler drove on Airport Boulevard, someone noticed smoke coming from the back and alerted him. The engine then caught fire and flames burned the back of the car, Lantz said.

Rincon Valley firefighters found the car still burning and quickly doused it before it spread to the passenger compartment.

“It burned the back of the car off,” Lantz said.

The F1 coupe was built in 1995, reportedly one of about 100 versions of the supercar, and features the driver’s seat in the middle of the cab, with two seats behind the driver.

McLaren’s website says the car was built as ”the world’s first production road car to feature an all carbon composite monocoque and body structure,” using Formula One racing technology on the road.

Kessler told firefighters it was worth about $2 million and was insured for $3 million, Lantz said.

Lamborghini Gallardo Plunges Off 250 Foot Cliff onto Golf Course

Labels: ,

Last month, a $300,000 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 was being driven at high speed around a twisty road encircling a golf course in Marbella, Spain. We're told the 28 year old driver was warned several times to slow down and almost ran over a pedestrian shortly before losing control and plunging off a 250 foot cliff.
In what can only be described as a scene from an action movie, the passenger jumped out of the car in mid-air. That decision probably saved his life since the Gallardo crashed roof first onto the golf course, killing the driver instantly. The passenger was seriously injured.
Here are exclusive photos of the aftermath:
You can see the Gallardo created a huge divot on impact (left) before tumbling down the rest of the cliff (right). The sound of the impact must have been incredible, especially when you consider how quiet golf courses usually are
Possibly the largest divot in golf history. Luckily, no one was playing this hole at the time
This is the corner where the Gallardo lost control and plunged off the cliff (very scary)
This vantage point really shows how steep the cliff is

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Mansory Stallone Crash


The Mansory "Stallone" is a modified Ferrari 599 GTB which produces 720 horsepower and a top speed of 211 mph. You can expect to pay well over $100,000 for the modifications (not including the car). Wrecking one of these is like wrecking 2 exotic cars. Which is exactly what happened today in Kiev, Ukraine when the owner ran a red light and crashed into two seperate cars.

Multi-level Parking in NYC

Labels: ,

The multi-level steel parking structure evidently failed, sending a Lexus GS sliding down on top of a Land Rover and the front end of an also-raised Honda Accord. The kicker? A 1998 Chrysler Town and Country and older Camry sit just outside the frame unscathed. The Ford Edge that just happened to be parked on the right (both figuratively and literally) side of the structure was reportedly inaccessible by its owner despite not playing a part in this mess. Whoever was in charge apparently felt the whole thing might go at any minute.

Teenagers Wreck 2 Ferraris


Here's an incredibly weird situation (and it's not an April Fools joke): A high school baseball coach loaned both of his Ferraris to 4 of his players, apparently with no supervision whatsoever. The teenagers were all juniors in high school and not surprisingly, managed to wreck BOTH Ferraris in a mall parking lot!!

Now here's where the story gets better: You would think the baseball coach would be outraged. Instead, he shows up at the scene, lights up a cigarette and calmly says "It's gonna take a lot of homeruns to cover this one up".
Is this the coolest baseball coach in the world? (or maybe the craziest). At this point, you're probably wondering how a high school baseball coach can afford 2 Ferraris. (He's apparently a retired neurosurgeon).

The Ferraris destroyed were a 1991 Ferrari Testarossa (some may remember this car from Miami Vice), and a 1995 Ferrari 348. The teenagers were driving around the mall and tried to pull into the same parking space. One t-boned the other. The accident happened in Oklahoma City, OK.
When a tow truck was called to the scene, the operator thought it was a joke when he was told not 1 but 2 Ferraris needed towing.

The baseball coach had apparently been allowing the players to drive his Ferraris all the time and still plans to let them drive after the cars are fixed. Perhaps he expects these players to be the next A-Rod and pay him back for the damages in the future.
