THIS is the moment a blundering blonde caused the world's most expensive five-car pile-up when her Bentley collided with a Mercedes, a Ferrari, a Porsche and an Aston Martin.

Hundreds of tourists watched in shock as the woman ploughed her 250,000 Bentley Azure into the supercars in Monaco. The driver of a white Mercedes S Class worth 75,000 was the first victim as the 2.7-ton convertible scraped down the side of it before crashing into a 140,000 black Ferrari F430.

An Aston Martin Rapide worth 140,000 and an 80,000 Porsche 911 also both suffered heavy damage after being shunted in the bizarre smash.

The driver and her two passengers then had the humiliation of being surrounded by scores of sightseers as they tried to open the car's jammed doors.

It is estimated the crash will cost more than 40,000 with the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin requiring new front wings and bumpers, while the Bentley needs the same repairs PLUS a new door.

Ruud Poot, editor of European motoring website Autogespot, said: "You probably couldn't find a worse place in the world to crash your car than outside Monaco's Place du Casino in the middle of the summer."
