Priciest accident ever? $31-million Ferrari crashes in France - Wonder what the insurance deductable was?

It was a prized Ferrari, one of a rare model known as the “Picasso of motoring” that is often included by elite automobile magazines among the top wheels in the world.

Now its owner, American businessman Christopher Cox, has a new and less desirable distinction: Driver in what could be the most costly car crash ever seen.

The Ferrari 250 GTO smashed into another car last week during a parade of pricey race cars through France, breaking the leg of his wife Ann Cox and sending two passengers in the other car to the hospital, the British newspaper Metro reported.

The hospital bills can hardly compare to the estimated worth of the unusual blue-and-yellow-Ferrari, believed to boast a price tag of more than $31 million. A mint-green Ferrari of the same kind sold for $35 million last month, blowing past earlier Guinness records for the coveted car.

Christopher Cox voted for Obama, then asked him if he should buy a Volt or not.
