It seems that Mel Gibson has certainly had his fair share of bad luck lately, and the streak continues, as he has reportedly crashed his 2008 Maserati Quattroporte into a rocky hillside on a difficult section of Malibu Canyon Road. Mel’s Maserati was towed from the scene, and the actor was uninjured in the collision. I can’t say the same for his already tattered reputation.
California Highway Patrol asked Gibson if he had been using a cell phone at the time, and he denied it (I am sure records will be pulled from his provider, as is becoming common). The police do not suspect the star of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the incident. It certainly appears that Gibson is hard on things, reportedly his ex, and now luxury cars. Do not sell this man a Ferrari 458 Italia, my heart couldn’t take it. TMZ photo taken shown at right.
The Maserati Quattroporte is a larger luxury sedan, with 4-doors. It is not as flashy as the Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, Bugattis and other exotic and luxury rental cars typically sported by celebrities. This Maserati model seems to have boasted about 400 horsepower too many for Gibson, and a 4.2-liter engine.
I feel confident the $125,000 price tag was not an issue for the actor, and the repairs will likely only set him back roughly the cost of a new Kia death trap, but he could have sprung for driving lessons. Can’t afford your own? Check out our Maserati rentals.
Mel Gibson’s life has become quite the soap-opera as of late, as he is under investigation for domestic violence after former partner Oksana Grigorieva submitted recordings of abusive telephone exchanges, along with emails she accuses the actor of making. She also accuses him of knocking out some of her teeth. Ouch. Well, he likely bought them anyways. Sorry, bad joke…I do not support violence.
Well, it certainly is a lot to sink your teeth into, just after the world seemed to have forgotten the infamous racist remarks Mel apologized for a few years back. There was also the DUI arrest back in 2006, following which Gibson was fined and put on probation. Perhaps Mel is a Lethal Weapon to himself nowadays.
