We can all remember in 2009 when the then Manchester United star Christiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari in a tunnel near Manchester airport. Months later Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner was left ‘badly shaken’ after he managed to mangle his £120,000 Aston Martin around a tree. Although the numbers of professional footballers who, with more money than sense, just shrug off crashing their six figure luxury cars seem to be escalating every year, it is not just wayward young footballers who are guilty of such senseless acts. Earlier this year troubled Hollywood actor Mel Gibson lost control of his 2008 Maserati Quattroporte and crashed into a hillside in Malibu Canyon.
