UK police say that late on Wednesday, August 23, they first heard of the wreck you see here involving multiple supercars. Combined, these automobiles are likely worth well in excess of $1 million and that’s to say nothing of the truck and trailer involved. Thankfully, it seems as though nobody was seriously injured in the accident.
The crash happened on the A20 near Farningham, Kent, near the famous Brands Hatch Circuit. At least ten different supercars ended up the wrong way up as a result. Workers soon went to the difficult task of recovering the cars as best they could and as of this writing, the street is open again.
Among the supercars on the transport truck, we can see a Lamborghini Aventador, a Jaguar F-Type, two Ferraris, an AMG GT, a Nissan GT-R, an Aston Martin, and a BMW. The lone car to escape the transport trailer was a Bentley Continental that ended up on its roof.
Police didn’t say what caused the accident or if any charges might be facing the driver. What is known is that a company called Everyman Racing mentioned the incident on its Instagram page and appears directly connected to the cars in question. Evidently, these cars were headed from Brands Hatch to Goodwood after an event at the former.
The team at Everyman Racing praised its heavy goods vehicle driver. “We are immensely proud of our HGV Driver Richard, who’s [sic] reflexes and quick thinking last night averted what could have been a nasty accident with other road users,” it said in a post.
According to the Daily Mail, a spokesman for Kent Police said: ‘Kent Police was called at 7.57 pm on Wednesday 23 August to a report that a car transporter had overturned on the A20 near Farningham. Officers attended the scene where the driver reported a minor injury. The road was closed while arrangements were made to recover the vehicles.” Getting a supercar out of this situation with minimal damage sounds like a herculean task.
