This pricey pile-up would make any driver cringe.

Eight Ferraris, three Mercedes Benz cars, two Toyotas and a Lamborghini were all part of a 14-vehicle crash yesterday in Japan. The pile-up, Wired is reporting, destroyed about $3.85 million worth of cars and a Toyota Prius.

According to International Business Times, the accident occurred at around 10:16 a.m. Sunday on the Chugoku Expressway, located at the western tip of Honshu island in the Yamaguchi Prefecture.

The cars were being driven by a group of car enthusiasts, aged 37 to 60, on their way to Hiroshima, reported the Associated Press.

According to USA Today, Executive Officer for Yamaguchi Prefecture’s Expressway Traffic Police unit, Mitsuyoshi Isejima, said the accident occurred when the driver of a Ferrari attempted to switch lanes.

The 60-year-old driver, who now reportedly may face jail time or a fine, lost control on wet pavement and skidded.

The other drivers tried to avoid hitting his car and a massive pile-up ensued.

Luckily, no one was reportedly seriously injured however, some of the cars involved in the incident are said to be beyond repair.

YouTube videos of the wreckage has gone viral since, garnering thousands of views. Video of the crash was even aired by NTV, a major national network, which showed several smashed, Ferraris, reported the Associated Press.
