That moment when you're WOT in a $20M car, then look around and see a bunch of others doing the same thing.

A $gazillion of cars, yet all we have to show for it is some shaky footage from some guy with a $50 camera/potato. :thumbsup:

Go back 20 years and only the people who attended this event would have seen it, then a couple of weeks later you might have seen a photo or two in a magazine.

Now we see anything, anywhere within minutes or hours...

So I'm grateful someone pulled out their crappy iBone and incompetently filmed this momentous occasion!

I think the video is a bit short with respect to 18  GTO's  but there were a number of other stellar models on track.
The pale green 250 GTO is the car that just sold privately for $35 million US. It is the car Stirling Moss was meant to drive but never did because of his career ending accident.

Chris Cox is an American lawyer. How would you be:
a) You do the wrong thing and clobber a 250 GTO making a turn. It's not the best of the GTO's so it's not $30 million; but it's more than $20 million.
b) Injur the driver.
c) Find out the owner is an extremely wealthy American lawyer.  That will turn out to be a really bad day for the Frog.

The car has been hit a number of times during it's life. It's just a car, it can and will be fixed again. Fortunately the occupants were not more seriously injured and that's the important thing.

The article has a few errors. Amongst other things, Stirling Moss never drove the $30 million pale green Ferrari in period.

The article said the factory have previously restored it to original....

So, is it restored, or original? :tilt:

Journos.... Always wrong, and paid for it, I just don't get it......

I saw 6 different GTOs while working at DK. The stories and buried facts about some of the are eye watering.

Carbon dating of chassis and components is an absolute must for anyone seeking a truly original car.

Oh, and if Cox was to blame for the crash... Imagine some peasant farmer suing him and winning.....
