An outing of luxury sportscar enthusiasts in Japan has ended in an expensive pile-up, leaving at least eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and two Mercedes smashed up.
Police in Yamaguchi prefecture say they believe the accident was caused when the driver of one of the Ferraris tried to change lanes and hit a barrier. He spun across the road, and the other cars collided while trying to avoid hitting his car.
Video of the crash aired by Japanese TV network NTV showed several smashed, bright red Ferraris cluttering the road.
No-one was seriously injured, but police said 10 people were treated for bruises and cuts. Fourteen cars were involved in total.
The luxury cars were being driven by a group of enthusiasts on their way to nearby Hiroshima.
