Last weekend’s Le Mans Classic was marked by a very expensive event for a one-of-a-kind Ferrari, the 250 SWB Breadvan. The model is worth no less than 30 million US dollars (about R$ 160 million at current prices) and was destroyed in the first part of the two chicanes of the great Mulsanne straight of the historic French Le Mans track.
The 31-year-old driver got out of the car unharmed after the accident, but from what you can see from the video of the accident – which only captures the end of the accident – the model was badly damaged. The car will definitely need a lot of maintenance to get back on track.
The passenger door was torn off, the front end was badly damaged and the front bumper was also badly damaged. However, this is not the first time this one-of-a-kind Ferrari has had an accident: in 2015, a 250 SWB Breadvan collided with a $7.5 million Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, with much less damage than it seems.
It is not known where the model will be modified, but in order to race this car on a track like Le Mans, the owner definitely has the money to fix it.
