The next time you damage your car and are tempted to complain about the cost of its repair, spare a thought for members of a luxury sports car club in Japan.


Sky News reported recently that one of the club’s outings ended in one of the most expensive pile-ups in history. Eight Ferraris, three Mercedes-Benz and a Lamborghini crashed into each other while on a day trip to Hiroshima. No one was seriously hurt but the damage was estimated at £2.46m.
