Buying a super car or an exotic car is something that only most people can dream of. Once bought, they become status symbols for their owners. Driving a high performance car is something that isn’t very easy. The level of acceleration and performance from such cars are on a different level altogether. Here are 20 exotic cars that had their life cut short.
Bentley Flying Spur
This incident took place in Hyderabad, on the ORR. The super smooth ORR is turning out to be a death trap due to rash driving. The vehicle was being driven by the chauffeur, who was returning from the airport after having dropped the owner of the car.
He certainly looks like he was in a hurry and wasn’t able to control the car. The pictures are devastating and show how badly the car was damaged after it rolled a few times. The car was certainly a total loss since the damage was extensive.
Mercedes G63 AMG
The G63 is a pure gangster car and one that purely defies physics. It has the aerodynamics of a brick, yet is really quick in a straight line. And not to mention the side exhausts that sound really nice. This one though wasn’t so lucky.
The owner of this car rammed into a truck while trying to negotiate a turn. This incident took place in Lucknow and the driver was critically injured. The G-Wagen is an old car and it shows in the way the car absorbed the crash and the vehicle structure deformed.
To most people, this will look like just another crashed Jaguar. But this one is not your everyday Jaguar. Sadly, this happens to be one of the few XF-Rs that are present in the country. How it managed to end up in such a condition is not known but one look at it is enough to say that it has had a rough time.
Though there is not much damage to show on the body, it is underneath that most of the damage has occurred, as can be seen from the picture. The XF-R is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 making 503 Bhp and 625 Nm.
The Panamera was Porsche’s first sedan. The vehicle has always been criticized for not being very good looking. Well this one managed to end up taking that to a whole new level. This incident happened in Delhi where the driver crashed into an auto and a taxi and then managed to flip the car a few times. As badly as the car is damaged, the occupants of the vehicle managed to walk away with minimal injuries. Talk about German build quality.
This was a very tragic incident wherein the person driving died in hospital. Details of the crash are not known but what is known is that the driver managed to climb on top of the railing of the flyover and flip the car a few times. He suffered head injury as the roof caved in. The car was new and was on a temporary registration.

Surat is a city that doesn’t have many supercars. That number is certainly going to reduce by 1 after this. This was the city’s only V10 Audi R8. From the looks of it, the driver happened to lose control of the car and hit the divider which managed to dislodge the wheel from the car and damage the rear suspension too.
Thought the car looks like a total loss, there were no injuries reported, luckily. Supercars aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, and this crash just reinforces that. The R8 is a supercar with over 500 German thoroughbreds waiting to be unleashed. In the wrong set of hands, this machine can really get brutal.
Mercedes S63 AMG
This has to be one of the saddest incidents. This S63 Coupe was the first one to land in the country and was brand new when this occurred. A truck happened to lose control and hit the car head on.
Though the car was a total loss, the owner was lucky to walk away without any injury. For those who don’t know, the S 63 AMG Coupe is powered by a 5.5-litre V8 making 577 Bhp and 900 Nm.
BMW X6 Hamann
The X6 was the car that introduced the customer to the possibility of having a coupe like roof line on a SUV. This particular X6 is even more special since it had been worked on by tuning company Hamann. This was the only X6 that was tuned by Hamann when the incident occurred. Details of the crash are not known but the vehicle looks in really bad shape.
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
This crash is courtesy a valet who forgot to put the car in neutral and happened to revv it while getting off. This happened in a posh hotel in Delhi. The whole incident was captured on CCTV and showed the driverless Lambo lunging ahead and hitting the wall after hitting a few cars.
This happens to be a tragic accident wherein the driver of this Q7, who was under the influence of alcohol, rammed into a biker, who sadly died. Not only that, the Q7 then went on to hit a truck as well causing it to tip over. Seeing the aftermath of the accident, it surely looks like the driver was going pretty fast since the bike looks like a pile of junk and so does the truck.
As they say, with great power comes great responsibility.
