  Car Crashes, always fun to watch, and a good reality call for all of us who love speed. Keep the road safe.

Ferrari has a lot riding on the LaFerrari supercar . As the brand’s new halo model and the successor to the legendary Enzo , the LaFerrari is being developed with the intention of turning it into one of the most prized hypercars in the market today.

So you can excuse Ferrari for testing its new pride and joy to the limit at its Fiorano test track. It’s highly important for the automaker to ensure that the LaFerrari is in tip-top shape when production finally starts, and episodes like the supercar’s recent brake failure are all par for the course.

It’s still an embarrassing sight to see a LaFerrari conk out during its testing run — that’s probably why the company hastily covered the car in a red cloth to hide its identity — but we all have to understand that Ferrari would much rather see its exotic lose it under its watch than when a buyer angrily calling to tell the company that the LaFerrari was a piece of junk.

It’s a case of having the right perspective in situations like this. So when you see the LaFerrari lose its brake like how this fan managed to capture to it on video, it’s probably something that Ferrari wouldn’t mind seeing so that it can work out all of the supercar’s kinks before sending off all 499 models for the expected million-dollar price tag it will command.

Jaguar F-Type Roadster

When Ferrari launched the 458 Italia , supercar lovers everywhere stood up and took notice. Things took a turn for the worse, as 458 Italias around the world started catching fire. After 10 units went up in flame just a few days after leaving the factory, Ferrari launched an investigation and eventually solved the problem, which likely cost a pretty penny.

It looks like now the history is about to repeat itself, as another new and exciting European sports car is running about the same pattern. The Jaguar F-Type is one of the latest and greatest sports cars to hit the market recently and Jag already delivered eight units in Belgium alone. Well, now there are only seven, as one unit in Herentals, Belgium went up in flame and burned to a crisp.

According to the driver, while he was cruising on the E313 he spotted a "defect" in the vehicle. He then pulled his new F-Type off of the highway and by the time he got out of the car, a fire broke out and and burned the Jag to an unrecognizable heap of charred metal and plastic. Fortunately though the driver was unhurt.

According to Jaguar officials, an expert will be sent in Belgium to investigate the event.

You can see images of the burned-up rig here.

We’ll start off by noting that if you ever find yourself with the opportunity to drive a supercar, like the Koenigsegg CCR, make sure you respect its power and ease yourself into it. Driving like a complete maniac the second you get behind the wheel is a recipe for disaster, as a group of spectators at Gran Turismo Polonia found out the hard way.

Apparently, a Norwegian driver found himself behind the wheel of a Koenigsegg CCR tried to impress the 60,000’s event spectators a little bit too much.

The details that are currently available allege that the driver switched off the
CCR’s traction control, which was his first mistake. It is evident by from the video that the CCR was too much for the driver to handle, let alone without traction control on, as he lost control of the car just circling to the starting line.

Well, despite the close call at the beginning, the driver chose to continue his asshat-style driving and launched from the starting line at full tilt on the slippery track without traction control. Then, just a few hundred feet later, the inevitable occurred, as he lost control of the CCR and plowed into bystanders, injuring 19 people in the process. Four of the bystanders suffered pretty serious injuries too.

We hope everyone recovers fully and that this driver learned a valuable lesson in the process.

We don’t know about you, but we are pretty tired of all this Justin Bieber drama. Seemingly ever few months we have a new story of him driving like a moron. It just keeps on repeating over and over again.

Last time he hit the front page he was accused of six moving violations in Dubai . Now it looks like on Monday night he struck a photographer with his white Ferrari 458 Italia while leaving the Laugh Factory with his friend, Lil Twist.

Up to this point, Bieber wasn’t charged with any crime for the incident, but if the photographer decides to sue The Beib, it will be the second lawsuit against him. The first one was opened just a few weeks ago when a man accuses Bieber of ordering his bodyguard to commit assault and theft of the photographer’s camera.

There are no details on why or how Beiber hit the man, but we think it is safe to say he likely wasn’t driving in the safest manner.

We don’t know about you, but we think is time for Bieber to hire a chauffeur as he is not the best driver we have seen out there. The more we hear about Beibers incidents behind the wheel of his various supercars, the more we are starting to wonder if people think that all Ferrari drivers drive like a-holes...

When it comes to cars, nothing breaks our hearts more than seeing a supercar go up in flames. So, imagine the depression in the room when we watched this video.

A trailer full of exotics - four of them, actually - all turned into scrap metal after a fire in a BMW eventually led to all four cars getting completely engulfed in a fiery blaze. According to news reports in Thailand, the cars were an unidentified BMW, a Lamborghini Murcielago , a Ferrari F430 and a Bentley Continental.

The cars were being towed on a trailer with the driver saying he was transferring them from a showroom in Bangkok to a gas station in the Si Sa Ket province on the Thai-Cambodia border, where an "unknown person" would be there to pick them up. Sounds like a shady transaction, huh?

But all that changed when all four exotics caught fire, not only destroying some fine supercars but also costing a total of 100 million baht, which is about $3.3 million based on current exchange rates.

This isn’t the first time a supercar has unexpectedly gone up in flames. Click past the jump to see previous occasions where an exotic met a rather untimely and fiery demise.

Never ever open a car door while moving…

This is a lesson George Michael had to learn in a very unpleasant way. It looks like the famous musician opened aRange Rover ’s door and tried to pull it shut again because it wasn’t shut properly. Before he could close the door, he fell out of the car at 70 mph.

The incident happened on a motorway near St Albans and a woman approaching from behind almost ran him over. Katherine Fox said that when she saw him falling from the car she slamed on her brakes and reversed her Mini , so that no other vehicles would hit him.

According to Fox, George Michael had his clothes ripped and there was blood everywhere. Still, when he was transported to the hospital, his publicist Connie Filipello said that the injuries are just "superficial cuts and bruises." Michael’s partner, Fadi Fawaz, also reported the Michael was doing well at the hospital.

Police officers have opened an investigation and a final decision on what happened will be announced the in the upcoming weeks. We’ll keep an eye on Michael’s condition and report back if anything changes, but he seems like everything is going to be fine.

Here is the U.S., we sometimes take for granted the safety on our roads. Well, the above video may just remind you…

When this video begins it appears to be an ordinary day for the driver, with everyone driving quietly through a tunnel. But, what starts nice ends up as a big mess really quickly, as a driver of a DS4 decides to test the limits of his compact hatchback.

The cars involved in this incident are a BMW X5 M and a Citroen DS4 , both driven at high speeds. And when both speeding cars zip past the poor guy taking the video and attempt to merge into the same lane, the destruction begins.

The problem is that not only those two irresponsible drivers were involved in the crash, but also a bunch of other cars which had no other fault that just being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Please remember this is not the way you are supposed to drive a car, so please do not try this at in your car!

Back in March 2012, a heavily modified Chevrolet Camaro managed to smash the record at the 2012 Texas Mile run with a an impressive top speed of 253.1 mph. This year, the car felt challenged when the Hennessey Ford GT set a new Texas Mile record of 267.6 mph.

It looks like the guys responsible for this mind-blowing 2,800- horsepower Camaro weren’t very happy with the results and wanted to see if their car can do better. The problem is that at an amazing speed of 240 mph, the driver lost control of his car and flipped end over end.

As a result, the Camaro was completely destroyed. Luckily for Joey Huneycutt - the driver of the Camaro - he only suffered minor injuries thanks to the modern safety features installed in the car.

We are not very sure if the Camaro will be brought back to life, but in these pictures it looks completely destroyed. Eh, who are we kidding? It’s toast. Hopefully, the guys have a video of the wreck; we are sure it is spectacular.

Imagine this: is a nice Sunday morning, you are at home with your family and suddenly an Audi TT is parked in your living room. No, we are not telling you the plot of an action movie here; this is real life.

This incident happened to a British family in Long Meadow Walk in Lowestoft, UK who had the unfortunate experience of seeing an Audi TT crash through its house. We cannot tell you up to this point how this incredible incident really happened, but it looks like the road was wet, the driver lost control, crashed through a fence, launched in the air, drove over two parked cars and plunged half of his car into the house.

Apparently the driver was in his early 20s, and was taken to the James Paget Hospital with serious head injuries and he is currently in critical condition. The car belonged to his father.

No people inside the house were hurt during this incident. We wish the young man a speedy recovery.

We all agree that the chance to see a Ferrari 458 Italia on the road next to you is pretty rare, but the guy who shot this video was even "luckier." He caught a 458 Italia indeed, but he saw something more!

He passed the Ferrari and, as you can imagine, the driver wasn’t very happy about it. The 458 Italia driver tried to push it on slippery roads, and lost control of his precious 458, smashing it into a wall in the process. The bad news is that the car suffered serious damages, but, as we can tell from the video, it looks like the driver was ok besides a bruised ego and a lighter wallet.

As a reminder, the 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 570 horsepower and it hits 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
