It seems that this week-end wasn’t a good one for the supercars owners. A number of five supercars were crashed all over the world, one of them ending with the death of the driver. The cars destroyed are: TechArt Porsche 911, Lamborghini Murcielago, Ultima GTR, Ferrari Testarossa and Audi R8.

The first two ones, the TechArt Porsche 911 and the Lamborghini Murcielago were making a "little" race at 300 km/h on a German highway. Both drivers are alive.

The Ultima GTR was crashed by a 53 years-old man in Netherlands. The car’s tail spun out and sent the car into a side barrier.

The Ferrari Testarossa was crashed on a central road in Colmenarejo, a town located north of Spain’s capital, Madrid. The driver lost control of the vehicle and ended up smashing into a brick wall.

But the most horrific one was the one involving the Audi R8. A 27-year-old driver, from Gummersbach, lost control of the car in heavy rain. He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

If more people realised that the contact patch of a tyre (the part of the tyre that touches the road) is only about the size of the average hand they would slow down, especially on wet pavement. Cars seem to bend the Laws of Physics every day but the reality is that these Laws are very unforgiving and come with sharp teeth. These accidents show what happens when the Unstoppable Force meets the Immoveable Object.
