This lorry driver was left stunned after seeing what could be the world’s most expensive traffic jam – a huge convoy of 36 Ferraris stuck at temporary lights.
HGV driver, Doug DeQuincey, had pulled over to make a call at a layby on the A44 Woodstock Road in Yarnton, near Oxford when he saw the fleet of super cars pulling up alongside his truck as they approached the lights.
With each car worth at least £200k, the 43-year-old from Milton Keynes quickly used his phone to video the queue of high-performance cars – worth more than £7.2 million in total.
Doug filmed the footage on Tuesday (July 11) as the fleet returned from a UK tour marking the 70th Anniversary of Ferrari.
He said: “I had pulled over in a layby trying to make a customer call at around 11am when I witnessed the awesome sight of a huge convoy of Ferraris rolling down to a traffic management system set in place for some tree cutting.
“I wasn’t paying much attention until I looked into my wing mirror and saw the following cars were all the same manufacturer.
“Sitting holding my phone in the cab, with the engine off, I started recording this rarely seen event of so many fantastic and beautiful cars convoying.
“I lost count after a few of the passengers waved at me and continued on their way but I counted 36 cars in the videos.
“That’s one highly expensive traffic jam but what a great soundtrack to be in a jam with.
“I was mesmerised by the glory from start to finish.
“I have to say that made my day seeing everyone enjoying the finer things in life and doing it safely.”
