Car accidents are never fun and often expensive. In certain parts of the world, accidents can be push expenses into the stratosphere, and Monte Carlo has reportedly just played host to such a fender bender. A woman was driving a Bentley Azure near the Monte Carlo Casino when she doubled-down on a nearby Mercedes-Benz S-Class. That scrape led to the Azure meeting a Ferrari 430, Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche 911.

Remember that yellow F430 Stradale caught at the Nurburgring in November? It's been sighted again, this time out on German public streets still wearing those mismatched shoes and about six-months' worth of splattered bugs. You'd think someone would take pity on the poor Ferrari and give it a bath. Look for a production version of the 520 hp steed to go on sale sometime before summer.
For what has seemed like forever, Porsche's 911 has dominated the Le Mans-spec GT2 class, with hordes of the iconic rear-engined sports car steamrolling the feeble opposition. The unquestioned dominance of its GT3 RSR racecars has contributed in large part to the mystique that surrounds the Porsche brand, and certainly hasn't hurt sales of its 911 production cars.
