Footage has been shared on Instagram that shows the moment a Porsche 911 GT2 RS slammed into a Pagani Huayra BC during a track day at Monza.
This video shows the Pagani entering the first corner on the Formula 1 circuit when, all of a sudden, a silver Porsche 911 GT2 RS comes into view and slams right into the door of the Huayra. The impact briefly sends the Porsche onto two wheels as the Pagani is pushed across the grass after its door was forced open by the impact.
It can often be hard to determine the cause of crashes like this but that’s not the case here as the whole thing was captured on film. Evidently, the driver of the Porsche was storming into turn 1 of the track way too fast and was unable to shed off enough speed to avoid hitting the Pagani. Things like this can happen at high-speed tracks like Monza. After all, even Formula One drivers often brake too late at this very corner so we don’t think it’s fair to chastise the 911 driver too much considering this is a mistake the world’s best drivers also occasionally make.
We don’t have any images available that show the damage sustained by the Porsche or Pagani although the driver’s door of the Porsche can be seen swinging open shortly after the crash showing that the driver likely sustained no injuries. The Pagani is one of the strongest vehicles on the market with its carbon fiber cell so its driver likely also escaped without injury.
As for the repair bill, well, we don’t even want to begin thinking about it.
