The $1m car crash (it involves a blonde)

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by grange, Jul 28, 2011.

  1. "YOU probably couldn't find a worse place in the world to crash your car than outside Monaco's Place du Casino in the middle of the summer."

    Tourists should take note of this warning from the editor of motoring website Autogespot before attempting to navigate the packed playground of the world's richest people.

    Particularly if they're driving a $370,000 Bentley. And, dare we say it, particularly if they're blonde.

    Not that blonde women can't drive. We'd never say that.

    It's just that, unfair as it may seem, blondes just happen to attract a disproportionate slab of negative attention when it comes to well, blonde moments, and really, extra care is needed if, um.... Okay, we'll stop digging now.

    Let's just say a non-gender specific person of unconfirmed natural hair colour turned a parade of some of the world's most expensive cars into a demolition derby when they scraped their Bentley against a $111,000 Mercedes S class.

    And that was just the start. Before we go on, here's the result:

    After scraping the Benz, the driver didn't hit the brakes in time to stop ramming a $207,000 black Ferrari F430, a Porsche 911 worth $118,000 and a $207,000 Aston Martin Rapide.

    Any sane person's immediate reaction would be to flee (after first checking everyone's okay, obviously).

    Unfortunately, that's not an option in Monte Carlo, the world's home of the bold and the beautiful, where tourists number in their hundreds per square metre, hands just inches away from their cameras.

    The driver and her two passengers weren't even able to open their car doors after the pile-up, having been imprisoned by gawking, snapping rubberneckers.

    There is a happy ending though, of sorts.

    Despite the fact her 2.7 tonne Bentley bingle involved more than $1m worth of luxury machinery, the cost of repairs is expected to reach just $60,000.
