The 30 Most Expensive Car Crashes Of 2009

Supercars continue to get faster and more exotic, but there's little evidence to suggest their drivers are getting any better at driving. We've been keeping score. Here's the 30 most expensive cars that crashed in 2009 (that we covered).

To make even the lowest end of this list a car had to have an MSRP or auction price of at least $165K, have a driver with seriously bad luck and get caught on camera while crashing or after crashing. And while an F1 wipeout costs a pretty penny, we're talking about street-driven cars in the hands of karma-challenged private citizen. Unless of course the private citizen crashed an F1 car — or, conversely, crashed a street car on an F1 course.

Maybe it was the market crashing, the housing bubble bursting, or Bernie Madoff screwing people, but the super wealthy had a lot on their minds this year leading to what seems a spike in exotic car accidents. Click next to pour through the super-carnage if your heart can stand it.

(Because you can't really tell the optioned difference between one Enzo and another when one of them is on fire, we've given an estimated value based on average original sales price, or recent auction value for each vehicle on the list — Ed.)
