This is the embarrassing moment a driver caused the world’s most expensive five-car pile-up – when her Bentley collided with a Mercedes, a Ferrari, a Porsche and an Aston Martin in Monaco.

Hundreds of tourists watched in shock as the hapless blonde crashed her £250,000 Bentley Azure outside the Principality’s Place du Casino.

The driver of a white Mercedes S Class worth £75,000 was the first victim as the 2.7-tonne Bentley scraped down the side of it before crashing into a £140,000 black Ferrari F430.

An Aston Martin Rapide worth £140,000 and an £80,000 Porsche 911 both suffered frontal damage after being involved in the bizarre incident.

The driver, and her two passengers, then had the humiliation of watching hundreds of tourists circle the scene as they were unable to open the doors of the British-built convertible.

It is estimated the crash will cost more than £40,000 with the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin requiring new front wings and bumpers, while the Bentley needs the same repairs PLUS a new door.

Ruud Poot, editor of European motoring website Autogespot, said: ”You probably couldn’t find a worse place in the world to crash your car than outside Monaco’s Place du Casino in the middle of the summer.”

    £40k – not that expensive……

    • redadie says:

      Uh–excuse me?!  K means 1,000.  THAT means 40 THOUSAND to repair one auto.  If that is not expensive to you, then I wish I had your money!

      • Ss says:

        For someone who drives those sort of automobiles, no, 40k is not very expensive.

        However, I highly doubt the repairs will be that low… then again, that’s what insurance is for anyway.

      • Speedypetee says:

        That is 40000 pounds not dollars.  Your looking closer at $65000 for the repairs.

      • J Toll says:

        It says the CRASH is expected to cost £40k. 

        ’caused the world’s most expensive five-car pile-up’ utter b******s

    Being on the ever loosing (and effectively inactive) side of the class war, I relish the small victories, no matter how pathetic and inconsequential they may be.

    Why is she blonde?

    The moral of the story:
     If you can afford to drive a $363,000 car, you can afford to pay the valet to park it!
