A high-speed police chase on the Slovenian highway near the city of Maribor ended up with an exotic car crashing into a truck. The sad part is, the driver of the TechArt Magnum wasn’t even its owner.

As it turns out, the police chase stemmed from reports that the TechArt Magnum was stolen a couple of weeks ago in Switzerland and after being identified driving along in Slovenia, local authorities went out and took the criminal for a nice – and fast – thrill ride along the Slovenian highways.

It’s bad enough to crash an expensive exotic car through the fault of the owner. But we do feel terrible for the poor chap that owns this TechArt Magnum. Not only was his car stolen from him, but he ended up with quite a hefty insurance bill to pay.

As far as the Serbian who stole the car, he was – thankfully - apprehended with a little assistance from an unsuspecting truck that just so happened to be in the criminal’s way.

sorry for the car, those theifts should be caught and tie up in the hood and smash the car on a wall.

So that’s why the Magnum never stopped after being chased by the police. Anyways, I hope that the owner of the car is insured as I’m pretty sure that the thief of the car doesn’t have money to get it repaired. That is a pretty big looking damage and it does symbolize a pretty significant amount for repair or replacement.

The sadder part is that the original owner of the stolen vehicle can’t do anything about his car, he probably will just have to wait for the thief to pay for damages or he can get it fixed with his own money. By the looks of the picture, the car is a total wreck.

A-hole... that precious car is built from sweat and blood, very sad for the real owner that his exotic car is totally wrecked by some a-hole bored in his life.
