The lifestyles of the rich and famous include traveling the world, buying expensive clothes, and driving luxury cars. With millions of dollars in wealth, you can do whatever you want. One of the first luxury purchases for celebrities to break through was something very simple-cars. Although some have a hard-luck in this part!
Here are some stories about celebrity car wrecks that will break your heart… and some that will make you laugh.
- Virat Kohli’s favorite old car, an Audi R8
Virat’s Audi R8, is now abandoned in a Mumbai parking lot. This car has gained a lot of attention on social media. Kohli sold it to a broker known as ‘Shaggy,’ Sagar Thakkar. Shaggy purchased it for his girlfriend but was soon caught up in a fraud. As a result, Mumbai cops took his belongings, including his Audi R8.
Post that, the vehicle has been resting on Mumbai police grounds, with no one to look after it.
It was previously stated that the car was entirely wrecked by the floods and would flow from one corner to the other. Shaggy paid 60 lakh for the car, which had originally cost 2.5 crores.
Meanwhile, Virat purchased many additional high-end vehicles, including a Bentley Continental GT, a Land Rover Range Rover Vogue, and others.
- Cristiano Ronaldo’s Ferrari 599 GTB was completely ruined
Ronaldo is a professional football (soccer) player. He has an Aston Martin DB9, a Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe, an Audi Q7, an Audi R8, a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, a BMW M6, a Bentley Continental GTC, a Bugatti Chiron, and three Ferraris in his collection.
Unfortunately, one of those Ferraris, a 599 GTB Fiorano that he paid £200,000 for, crashed tragically in the Manchester tunnel in 2009. Ronaldo was unharmed, and it didn’t appear like his sentiments were wounded by his Ferrari being totaled. The $278,000 599 GTB Fiorano was one of many similar automobiles in his garage, and he probably just saw it as another Ferrari.
- Elon Musk’s McLaren F1 also crashed, and it was uninsured
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, bought a McLaren F1 from the sale of his first software company to Compaq in 1999. Musk and fellow tech investor Peter Thiel were on their way to a meeting to raise funding for PayPal. Musk and Thiel were unharmed, but the car sustained significant damage to its body, windshield, and other components.
- Rowan Atkinson-McLaren F1
Mr. Bean actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson crashes his £500,000 McLaren F1 supercar twice. The first time he collided with a small city car. It was repaired and used by the British actor for 12 years. Later, he had another accident that caused the car to catch fire. The repair time was approximately one year.
In 2015, Atkinson finally sold the car for 8 million pounds, which allowed him to make a profit of 7 million pounds.
- Kris Jenner’s brand-new Rolls-Royce was crashed.
Kris Jenner, the mother of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” was involved in an accident with a Toyota Prius on Los Angeles’ 101 highway in 2016.
From what it looked like, the Prius’ driver jumped a red light and slammed into Jenner’s car, smashing the front of the car and triggering the airbags. Thankfully, her injuries were limited to a suspected fractured wrist, which is remarkable given the magnitude of her car’s destruction.
The $250,000 white Rolls Royce she was driving was totaled and had only been in Jenner’s hands for one week
