Videos: Some Rich Jerks Race And Ruin Expensive Cars In Beverly Hills
A couple of really cool bros were spotted racing their expensive sports cars through Beverly Hills, and boy, do they look impressive:
I think we can all agree that there's nothing more badass, and frankly, masculine, than completely ignoring stop signs and blasting through a quiet residential neighborhood at incredible speeds. How else are people going to know you're not only rich, but brave?
In the video, we can see a Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 911 GT3, peel out and race away down the street, but not before hearing a sickening scrape as the LaFerrari peels out and dips into the pavement. The Ferrari, by the way, is supposedly owned by members of the Qatari royal family according to blog Auto Gespot.
That wasn't gonna stop the driver, though. And apparently neither was a stop sign, or a Nissan Altima; because screw stop signs, and especially screw Altimas. Beep beep! Outta my way, peasants—Ferrari comin' through! From the video and reactions of the bystanders, it appears that the LaFerrari might have clipped the Altima that was waiting patiently at the stop sign, but who cares, right?
Until...oh, no. Well, this is awkward: the LaFerrari starts smoking, and heads back into a driveway for a little cool-down period. It's totally chill though; when you pay $1.4 million for a vehicle as studly as the LaFerrari, you're bound to experience some technical difficulties.
