Could this be one of the priciest pile-ups in history?

Eight Ferraris, three Mercedes-Benzes, a Lamborghini and two other vehicles have been involved in a motorway crash in Japan's southern prefecture of Yamaguchi.

No-one was seriously hurt but reports estimate the damaged cars are worth at least £2.46m in total.
