    Obscene crashes at speed!

    10 Worst High Speed Crashes Ever
    November 19, 2008
    Wherever there are wide open roads, there will always be drivers trying to push the limits of their cars. Many have no professional driving experience. When you combine that with a high-performance vehicle, you often end up with spectacular crashes. We've compiled a list of top 10 highest speed crashes on open roads. We hope you keep these in mind next time you have the urge to speed.

    #10. Ferrari 360 Modena

    130 MPH
    (210Km/h)
    The driver of this 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena was trying to show off to his girlfriend when he lost control at 130 MPH on a country road in France . The car ran into power lines, bringing down live cables and snapping the car in two. Both driver and passenger were lucky to survive the crash.



    #9. BMW 528i
    135 MPH
    (217 km/h)
    This 1998 BMW 5-series was being driven at 135 MPH when a tyre blew out, resulting in the vehicle flipping several times and crashing into a concrete pillar.

    #8. Mercedes SLK
    135 MPH
    (217km/h)
    This is what a Mercedes SLK looks like after slamming into a tree at 135 MPH in Germany .


    #7. Chevrolet Corvette
    140 MPH
    (225km/h)
    The driver of this Corvette got his car up to140 MPH before spinning out and disintegrating on a Dallas, Texas, highway.

    #6. TVR T350C
    140 MPH
    (225km/h)
    This TVR was racing another vehicle in Johannesburg, South Africa, when the driver lost it at 140 MPH. The car slammed into a paved embankment and flipped over underneath an overpass.


    #5. Lamborghini Murcielago
    150 MPH
    (241 km/h)
    This Lamborghini was only 6 days old and was NOT insured when the owner decided to see how fast he could go on a desert highway in Egypt. A truck cut him off at 150 MPH. He lost $350,000 but was glad to be alive

    #4. Ferrari Enzo
    160 MPH
    (257km/h)
    41 year old driver was killed after losing control of his Enzo at 160 MPH. The impact was so great that it tore the car into several pieces. Locals reported having seen and heard an Enzo being driven very hard the day before. Most likely it was the same car. Accident happened on October 30th, 2005.


    #3. Mercedes SLR
    165 MPH
    (265 km/h)
    The owner of this SLR was showing off to his passenger on a desert highway in Qatar. They reached speeds of 160 MPH before losing control and flipping countless times. The car tore into 3 pieces.


    #2. Dodge Viper
    170 MPH
    (273 km/h)
    The driver of this 1998 Dodge Viper was pushing 170 MPH when he lost control on a stretch of Arizona highway. After flipping a few times, the car slammed sideways into a pole.

    #1. Ferrari Enzo
    196 MPH
    (315 km/h)
    This is the world's highest known crash-speed on open roads. There are only a handful of cars even capable of reaching these speeds. The driver was drunk and pushing the limits of this $1.3 million car on the Pacific Coast Highway when he lost control and crashed into a utility pole. Miraculously, he walked away from the accident.
