Your comment actually had me looking up information on donkey teeth. I'd imagine they are relatively as strong as a goats teeth and considering those things can chew tin cans I'd say they are pretty strong. Cars, especially those sporty ones in the image shown don't seem to be as durable as your average every day car. I could be wrong, I am no expert on either the donkey or any type of automotive, but considering the type of car that it was, I would think even minor to moderate damage would be over exaggerated and inflated in the owners eyes.

Strong enough to bite your fingers off. Almost had that happen with my grandparents donkey. He wouldn't let go of my fingers because he thought my fingers was his treat.

A) Very strong.
B) Cars like that are built from pricey light weight materials like carbon fiber. Minor damage would cost a fortune and the body on a car like that is pretty easy to damage. Even a minor fender bender can leave surprising amounts of damage.

This is the same kind of car as is in your article. After hitting a sedan.







Supercars tend to lose any and all encounters with other vehicles, signposts, trees and ditches.

And goats, it seems.

Like what other said, the car is made from light weight and moderately particular components such as carbon fiber. The difference between carbon fiber and the metals on a normal car is that you can't really repair carbon as easily because it cracks and splinters as opposed to bending. Then the whole carbon fiber creation process is a whole different level as opposed to normal car components, which is also part of the costs. So this is more than the car being worth more in the owners eyes, rather just supply and demand for these components from the manufactures.
