GTR's first crash pics:(!

I was scrolling through autoblog and saw this news.These here are the pics courtesy Autoblog and nagtroc




I knew this was going to happen but , I didn't expect it to be so soon.

This is the website on autoblog.com http://www.autoblog.com/2008/01/07/a...an-gt-r-crash/
And the forum where they got their source from. http://www.nagtroc.com/forums/Crashed-GT-R-t20983.html

So no matter how good your car handles, in the end , it's the driver's judgement that counts.

I don't want to assume anything until I get the real info. So, I will be following the thread on that forum for any news.

Did it crash into a bus or similar? Seems to be on the wrong side of the road but maybe thats how it ened up.

Oh and it seems to be in ping tin.

Unfortunately this will probably not be the last of this scene. Because of the price point, people with no business in that car will be in that car. I am not saying they can't drive. That is just an incredible amount of power being put to the ground. All the sudden....oh shit!

I'm pretty sure. I can't remember whether I been to that exact place before but looks like it.

The bus terminal doesn't seem to match the ping tin one but it could be temp one? Either that or the KMB came from another route as a replacement.

That's Hong Kong.. its English and Chinese writing. Plus I recognize the Police uniform and the bus and taxi in the background.
