there was an accident at that intersection yesterday too. around 6 as well

be careful when you drive there guys. i'm always around there and i've seen probably 10+ accidents all in that intersection. people just love rushing the yellow and left turners always think they'll stop.

There was a 250 GTO that crashed at a race a couple years ago. The funny thing is that the car is worth so much, the damage wouldn't have even affected the value much, if at all. The F40 is obviously very rare and pricey as well, I wonder if the situation is similar to some extent.

I don't think ICBC covers most high end cars in the 100k range, much less an F40. Cars like this are usually covered by private insurance companies.

Yes, it's badly damaged, but to say it's 'totaled' is a huge stretch.

Any car with any amount of damage can be repaired, whether or not it makes financial sense is the mitigating factor; the value of an F40 makes a write-off very unlikely.

Case in point: a F40 with more severe damage, fully repaired and back on the road.

With the fresh rain after a dry spell, all the power and turbo lag, no electronic safety features and sport tires, I give the driver the benefit on the doubt that he wasn't doing anything too remotely stupid when he crashed.

Just read that he was coming home from the car show, so it wasn't like he took it out purposefully in the rain.

Yeah it's a rare car, but it's HIS rare car and he can do whatever the fuck he wants with it.

It'll most likely be sent back for Ferrari for repairs. It definitely looks very repairable.

I think the attitude comes from the fact that the guy destroyed a super rare classic car. He's not important. But the car is a piece of history. The car had meaning and history, which is now tainted.

I'm not jealous of the guy. But I do think he's an idiot for destroying a classic supercar because of a little wetness on the road. It's fucking Vancouver, based in a Pacific rain forest. It's not LA where the rain is a surprise.
