Gold Plated Audi R8 Crash

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a "gold plated" Audi R8 in Hamburg, Germany. We're not sure there is any actual gold involved. . . other than the money that went down the drain when this happened. As is most often the case, the driver was at fault. He ran after a police chase ended when he hit parked cars. It isn't clear if it was the owner who was driving or a thief who the owner claims took the car.

You Don't See This Every Day-Bentley vs Panamera

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a PAIR of wundercars bashed into each other―a likely sign of the apocalypse. How often do you see a Bentley Continental & a Porsche Panamera in the same month? How about on the same day? How about tailgating each other on the freeway. D'oh!

Ferrari California vs Bus

It has been far too long since we've posted a Wreck of the Day. So today we are making up for the lapse. Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day  is a 2014 Ferrari California.

Ferrari California vs Bus in Ajman--Bus WINS!

Astonishingly, everyone survived with only minor injuries. 

Ferrari California crashes into truck

The accident took hours to clear and caused major traffic delays in the city of Ajman, United Arab Emirates. Police accuse the driver of excessive speed and reckless driving. First responders assumed the Ferrari passengers would have to be dead. Not only were they alive but not too seriously injured. It helped that the driver, a man in his 20's, had been able to slow before hitting the bus by plowing into 4 or 5 other cars (accounts vary.) Both Ferrari occupants went to the hospital and are expected to make full recoveries.

Nissan GT-R End-Over

Nissan GT-R Roll-over Crash
Here's something you don't see everyday. Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a Nissan GT-R Racer. In the video several GT-Rs pass by during the 2014 Long Tom Hill Climb race in the town of Sabie, Mpumalanga, South Africa. The last car takes the turn a little too fast, flips several times before disappearing down a ravine. This was the fourth run of the day for 47 year old driver Wilhelm Baard. Fortunately he was not seriously injured and attended the awards ceremony at the end of the event. Baard won South Africa's Knysna Hill Climb in 2011 in a GT-R.



The 2014 Long Tom Hill Climb took place on January 25th and 26th. It was sponsored by Renault (Nissan's parent) and the Sports Car Club of South Africa. The race covers 6.3 km (3.9 miles) along the banks of the Sabie River in Mpumalanga, South Africa. The next video shows cars leaving the starting line and beginning their assault on the hill. The sounds are great.




Many thanks to the spectators who recorded these videos, our friends at WreckedExotics.com who reliably find an astonishing amount of this type stuff on a daily basis, and to AutoEvolution who provided us with the background story and more images of the event.

Photos & Video of Bentley Continental GT Burning to the Ground

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is yet another Bentley Continental GT in flames. Unilke last time, the fire was mostly the owner's fault and partly the fault of the illegal street racers that he ran into (we don't think the Bentley was connected to the street race.) Witnesses reported (and video shows) that he was heading from the airport to Minsk, Belarus at an extreme rate of speed when he crashed into a VW and then 3 other vehicles in the middle of the street for a drag race. You can see a large group of people scattering from the middle of the street right after the crash. The driver escaped before the Bentley caught fire.

Video of 3 Lamborghinis on Fire!

Lamborghini Aventador Gallardo accident fire wreck
We approach this with some guilty glee. You know we love reporting burning super cars. Today's Wreck of the Day is a trifecta. A group of 5 Lamborghinis were travelling in convoy from the city-state of Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The middle car lost traction and crashed into the center divide. The car behind it (not sure if it was the ugly BMW or one of the other Lamborghinis) crashed into an additional 2 cars then a bus hit the lot of them. Somehow 3 of the Lamborghinis, an Aventador and 2 Gallardos, ended-up on top of each other. Being Lamborghinis, they, of course, burst into flames. And there's video! Director Norazam of the local fire and rescue reported that drivers & passengers escaped without injury.

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day brings tears to our eyes. The Aston Martin Rapide is quite possibly the loveliest 4 door sedan on the planet. . . and one of the very fastest too. This one hit an Audi SUV in Beijing.

Join Us to Stop Ferrari Abuse!

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ferraris - Another senseless tragedy
We like to stay out of politics. . . but on this issue our hackles have been raised! In the past week we reported 2 poor, defenseless Ferraris destroyed by senseless offroading. Today we add a third.

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ferraris - F458 Italia Used for Offroading
Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is an F458 Italia driven by what we are sure is a mature 18 year old from Norway. Sadly, the immense wealth of his parents could not buy knowledge that Ferraris cannot conquer all terrains, do not have 18" of ground clearance and have not been tested on the surface of Mars. Some argue that Ferrari has never made any of these claims and that most fools can tell that a Ferrari should be driven on pavement. The evidence is clearly to the contrary and until a permanent solution can be found, we think fools and their Ferraris should be parted. Send us your Ferrari and we guarantee not to off road it for you. 

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ferraris - F458 Italia destroyed by ignorant off roading
Please send your abused Ferraris along with generous donations to:

Won't you do your part? Tell Ferrari to stop promoting off road use of these innocent supercars! Leave the mud and boulders to Land Rover, Jeep and Steyr-Daimler-Puch.

Note: despite the severity of the crash, the driver was uninjured. And thankfully, no one at the school where this crash took place was hurt. Thanks to WreckedExotics.com for our regular doses of exotic car mayhem.

Video of One-of-a-Kind Lamborghini Crash

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a one-of-a-kind Lamborghini concept supercar called the Giugiaro Parcour. This past weekend at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS) the Giugiaro Parcour was participating in the Supercar Run and spun off the race track into a hay bale wall. The damage is certainly repairable but the video is still hard to watch.

1998 Toyota Rav4 Wreck of the day!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1998 Toyota Rav4 that was involved in an accident.  Unfortunately for the Rav, its front end had been severely damaged. We began by removing the wrecked panels to check for any hidden damage, and replacing or repairing the mangled parts as needed.  Once the "Body Repair" portion had been completed, we refinished the repaired areas to match the paint on the rest of the vehicle!

$ Multi-Million 1962 Maserati Wreck

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day had been the last surviving example of only 3 original Maserati Tipo 151s custom built to race at the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans. This car competed again in 1963 and 1964. It was sold in 2006 for a record 1.85 million Swiss Francs (US $2 million+.) In 2012 it was entered in the Goodwood Festival of Speed. You can see in the photos and videos what happened.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550 Wreck

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550. The story goes like this. . . an out of control truck was barreling down on the poor supercar and in an heroic attempt to avoid an accident, the driver swerved and crashed into the median. Yeah, we're a little dubious about the story too. This Lamborghini disaster is from Si Chuan, China.

1995 Ferrari 348 vs Tree

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a 1995 Ferrari 348 that was wrapped around a tree at high speed (yes, of course we meant the tree was speeding.) Amazingly, the driver walked away without any significant injuries. No word on how the tree fared or if drugs or alcohol were in the tree's system at the time of the collision. Police continue their investigation on rue Anatole in France.
