Paul Bailey crashes Porsche 918 Spyder into crowd during fund raising event in Malta

Paul Bailey crashes Porsche 918 Spyder

A total of 26 people have been injured, of them 5 are in a critical condition.

Paul Bailey is a British businessman, who is also a car collector. His collection includes a series of Lamborghini’s, Aston Martin’s, Porsche’s, Ferrari’s, Koenigsegg’s and many more. He is also the first person in the world to own the three hypercars – Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1, together known as the Holy Trinity in the world of automobiles.

Paul Bailey shot to fame back in 2012, when the company he founded with his wife Selena Bailey was sold for £28million. These days, if not driving, or buying cars, he is seen at fund raising events, showcasing his enviable collection of cars. Sometimes he also takes the car for a spin during such events.

In one such event, Paqpaqli Show in Malta, Paul was doing his usual thing – driving his collection of supercars to entertain the public. But, while driving his Porsche 918 Spyder (worth £750k or INR 7.42 crore), he tried to perform a stunt which went horribly wrong and the car hit grass and then on to the crowd of people who were standing behind the fence. The entire episode has been caught on video, which you can see below.

The force at which the car spun onto the spectators has resulted in injuring at least 26 people, of which five are in a critical condition. Most of the injured are still being treated at a local hospital.
