About the only thing you can understand from the narration on this German video is “Autobahn,” “Corvette,” “McLaren,” and “Dodge Viper.”

But in this case, a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, even if they are in German. That’s all you have to see to start crying about these once magnificent supercars.

Last Saturday, in Kirchheim, Germany, three high-performance cars crashed on the same stretch of the Autobahn, including a C6 Corvette, a McLaren MP-12C, and a Dodge Viper ACR. Two days earlier, a Maserati Gran Turismo was totaled in that area, too!

Reports are sketchy about the crash on Thursday, but high speed could have been the cause – well, duh, this is the Autobahn, after all.

Meanwhile, let’s hope the 612-hp Viper driver opted for insurance since he had only rented the car for three hours and crashed thanks to high speed and a wet road.

Two hours later, the Corvette hydroplaned and crashed into a guard rail and had to be pulled out of a ditch onto a rollback. Damage didn’t look too bad, though the front bumper looked to be hanging loose afterwards. By nightfall, the McLaren had also crashed and was totaled.

While the cars suffered greatly, reports indicate that none of the drivers or their passengers were injured in the crashes.
