Chinese businessman, Ni Haishan, has been doing pretty well for himself over the past few years. And to show the world, and especially his clients, just how well he’s doing, he came up with a unique way to show off his wealth, by taking a group of Italian exotic cars on the rugged Sichuan-Tibet Highway, which is not a place that a Supercar should ever be. Ni is the bossman so he got to drive the Ferrari F12, but the 10 employees that accompanied him on the rugged offroad adventure had been given brand new Maserati Ghibli’s to drive. Haishan thought this would be the perfect way to show his customer base that he’s been doing so well financially that they should trust him with their money(not their cars).

This is either the most brilliant thing in the world, or the most obnoxious, we can’t really decide. Our first thought is that if you have the money to blow, how much more fun could it get than taking a brand new Maserati and driving it like a bat out of hell without worrying about breaking the $75,000 car. But those cars were also given as gifts, so you might want to try and take it easy in hopes that it would survive, but what is the fun in that. We want to go ahead and give old Haishan the benefit of the doubt and say that this was just a brilliant publicity stunt and he now has the entire world talking about his crazy decision to destroy almost $1 million worth of cars. Of the 11 Cars that started the adventure, only 5 finished on their own power and not a single one made it out without suffering significant damage. The Ferrari went through multiple tires and the last one sheered the bolts right off the axle.

There’s no way he was just a bonehead and really thought the cars would make it with no problems. Or was it just an all around terrible decision? Tell us what you think in the comments below…
