Nearly $2 million worth of vehicles were wrecked in a 14-car crash in Japan on Sunday. The pileup involved eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini, three Mercedes-Benzes and two Toyotas.

The fancy car convoy was headed from Kyushu to Hiroshima when the driver of a red Ferrari skidded while switching from the right lane to the left on the rain-soaked expressway.

"It was a gathering of narcissists," Mitsuyoshi Isejima of Yamaguchi Prefecture's expressway-traffic police unit said of the drivers.

Cars were the only casualties in the crash--among the wrecked vehicles was a Ferrari F360 that costs more that $231,000. No fatalities were reported; 10 people had minor injuries.
