When we showed you the $8 million 1958 Ferrari 250 TR hit the tire wall at Laguna Seca over the weekend, all our evidences were constricted to photographs. But now, thanks to videos captured by those who were at the race, we now have video evidence of exactly what happened to David Love’s obscenely expensive ride.

We’ve seen a lot of cars that crash in races over the years but not to the extent of this one. And it’s not because of the damage either, which if you look at the photos we showed, isn’t all that much – a few detailing tweaks here and there and banging sheet metals should do the trick. This car crash is significant because, well, the car that got introduced into the tire wall is one of the most expensive cars in the history of the world. One even got sold a few months ago for a cool $12 million!

While the video does give chills down our spines, we’re still compelled to show this to you guys. After all, how often do you see a car that can be sold for about four Bugatti Veyrons skirt the gravel and crash into a tire wall?

Well that is a nice thing to do during your weekend. You can tell your wife “Honey, I’m going to the track and crash my 8 million dollar ride to the tire wall... you coming” lol... o well, there are really unavoidable stuffs in racing so I guess he just have to get it repaired and get back on the tracks.

Even a professional driver always misses that tight turn on Laguna seca, because it a 20degree incline then 80 degree sudden right turn and 70 degree left turn.
