View Full Version : Lexus Carnage

During a late night dinner with the Celica/RSX club, a bunch of us were talking about the "lexus carnage" incident where a test drive went really bad. Here are some pictures for those that didn't see them the first time.




IIRC the car was travelling at a high rate of speed on the return to the dealer. The driver of the car panicked for some reason and slammed his foot on the gas (believing it was the brake pedal) and the car hit a ramp at the opening of the lot and he went airborne. I remember reading about 14 cars being damaged, and 6 or 7 of them being written off. I am sure this story is in the archives of some lexus car forum!
