Crash Time China: Toyota Corolla hits Rolls-Royce Ghost
Published on May 14, 2014 by Joey Wang
A big crash in southwest Beijing. A Toyota Corolla hit a Rolls-Royce Ghost full on the right-rear wheel. The accident happened on a zebra crossing in front of a hotel. The Roller has Shanghai license plates, indicating it had a long ride behind. Note hood ornament in gold. And we got a GIF from a security cam:
The Ghost is double at fault. It should wait for ongoing traffic and it rides straight over mentioned zebra crossing. The Toyota, at about 80km/h, hits the Rolls quite hard.
The driver of the Corolla, a woman, wearing high heeled shoes, a short black skirt, and a green vest. Damage doesn’t seem that bad. Toyota’s are strong…
… but Rollers are not. Suspension seems broken. Door is gone. Damage probably structural. In that case, this Ghost is dead.
The Ghost is a very popular super sedan in China, price starts at 4.19 million yuan or 685.000 USD.Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 6.6 liter V12 with 570hp and 780nm.
