Supercars have both traces of the beauty and the beast wrapped up in their extremely powerful engines. The cars themselves are gorgeous, works of art that define speed and provide a thrill for car enthusiasts. However, in the wrong and untrained hands, they can be the source of terrible, sometimes fatal, accidents. We've taken a look at some of these types of accidents that have happened in the past few years and compiled them to show the damage they can cause. 

Before we go on, just know that this post is not to flaunt the accidents as "cool" in any way. Some of those involved were killed, relatively making these cars mean nothing in comparison. If you're ever able to test a supercar, but have never driven one, don't push it even close to its limit. You'll likely end up swerving into a guard rail or sailing down a ditch, putting yourself and others in danger.
