Pagani Zonda crash results in $449,000 insurance claim |

You could imagine that if you were given the keys to a Pagani Zonda for a quick test drive (our dream), you’d drive it as carefully as possible. Sooner or later though, that massive 7.3-liter V12 engine would get the better of you, and you will have to floor it just to feel the rush.

Sadly, a driver in the UK felt a bit more than just a rush, as he crashed the beautiful supercar while testing it out on a track. As you could imagine, you can’t just slap some bondo and hope it will buff out, so the driver went to his insurance company to file a claim.

The worth of the claim, after being checked out by investigators, was a reasonable $449,000 (£300,000). Surprisingly, the company decided to ship the luxury model at the Pagani factory in Modena, and have it fixed, instead of just writing it off. And before you ask, yes, this was the largest claim issued by a private car owner in the UK.

While we envy the guy for driving such a fantastic car, you can imagine that his insurance rate is now sky high. Perhaps he should check out these tips to keeping his insurance premium as low as possible.
