It was a line-up of the finest supercars in one of the world's wealthiest hotspots.
But what started as a parade of high-priced horsepower turned into an impromptu game of demolition derby - when a hapless blonde scraped her £250,000 Bentley Azure down the side of a £75,000 Mercedes S Class.
What followed in the Monte Carlo's Place du Casino was every insurance company's nightmare.
Smashing: The hapless blonde (pictured in the car on the left) scraped her Bentley Azure down the side of a Mercedes S Class, crashed into a Ferrari F430, then went head on into a Porsche 911 and Aston Martin Rapide
Her 2.7 tonne beast then crashed into a £140,000 black Ferrari F430, before going head on into an £80,000 Porsche 911 and a £140,000 Aston Martin Rapide.
The driver, and her two passengers, then had the humiliation of watching hundreds of tourists circle the scene as they were unable to open the doors of the British-built convertible.
It is estimated the crash will cost more than £40,000 with the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin requiring new front wings and bumpers. The Bentley will need the same repairs, plus a new door.
