On Thursday, a Maserati GranTurismo, arguably one of the most attractive cars currently on the road, entered into a makeover. The accident happened in on the highway near Kirchheim, and excessive speed is believed to be the culprit.
Then came Saturday. A Dodge Viper ACR did the exact opposite of its first name and hit the highway’s median splitter, crossed three lanes of traffic, and shoved itself into the barrier on the side of the road. Not only was speed the likely culprit, but the conditions were wet, and the car had been rented for just three hours.
Except that wouldn’t be the end of it, because just two hours later a Chevrolet Corvette also traveling at speed on the wet roadway lost control and made friends with the barrier as well. Fortunately, unlike the Viper the Corvette slid off into the highway embankment and only suffered minor damage (cracked front bumper, etc). And that should now be the end of it right? Nope. The title reads four super cars, and number four might be a bit more painful than the others. Just a few hours after the Corvette, a two month old McLaren MP4-12C succumbed to the same fate, except this one was totaled.
Thankfully, none of the drivers were injured in the crashes.
