Somewhere in New York an auto dealership employee is almost certainly looking for a job now that he’s wrecked one of the world’s rarest supercars.

The car in question is an 806-horsepower Koenigsegg CCX, a car so exclusive the Swedish boutique automaker — which, by the way, is buying Saab from General Motors — builds just 25 annually. Of those, a mere 10 arrive in the United States. They go for about one mil apiece.

According to WreckedExotics.com, the owner of this 2008 model left it at the dealership, presumably to have some work done. That’s when an employee with more stones than skills took it for a spin and hit a guard rail. As if that weren’t enough, he also took out a new Porsche GT2.

Thanks to WreckedExotics for the pic. If you haven’t checked out the site, it’s a great place to kill some time at work. Not that we do that, of course.



ouch :(

Haha good one. Wow just wow

I worked as a vallet parker (if thats the term) where lots of nice cars would come by. The people that owned the Ferraries, lambos.. ect NEVER let any of the attendants drive the cars. The nicest cars I drove while working there were a 911 and a Bentley GT. I would think twice about stepping on them sons of bitches, and I would think even more about handing over my keys to anyone.

That job would SUCK!

I wonder who covers the bill? I guess the company he worked for. Wonder what the write off on a CCX is these days.
