Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa

Seeing a damaged modern supercar isn’t a big deal anymore. Seeing a damaged classic, however, certainly is! This 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa hit the wall during the Monterey Historics this week after hitting the brakes a little late and catching some air on the way out of Leguna Seca’s infamous Corkscrew. This may well be the most expensive accident we have ever seen, the cars valuation can be placed above €8 million!

This particular example, number 0754TR, is owner by collector David Love and has been a regular competitor at the Monterey Historics. Ironically, it’s not the first time the car has hit the wall at Laguna Seca. Under previous owner Jack Graham, the car was destroyed in a similar accident in 1960 and was re-bodied between this time and 1984 when Love started competing the car once more.

Fortunately for us, had a camera man at the corner who managed to get detailed shots of the whole event. The damage looks to be relatively minor to the car, considering it’s past we think the owner may not have too much difficulty in deciding to fix the damage to the multi-million dollar car. also report that the owner/driver suffered nothing more than a little shock after his misadventure into the tire wall.
