Movie fans might have made an effort to catch a showing of "A Good Day To Die Hard," the latest addition to the Die Hard franchise, this weekend. Those who saw the film likely remember a chase sequence that resulted in the demolition of countless cars - in fact, the extensive damage helped the movie claim the record for the most automobiles crashed in a single film, MSN Autos reports. 

Throughout the filming, there were 132 cars that were completely destroyed and an additional 518 that required some kind of car repair before they could be used again. In total, the damage was in excess of $11 million - and that's excluding several donations of top-of-the-line luxury vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs. Those brand new models were donated by the manufacturer and even boasted supercharged engines, USA Today reports. 

"With 'Die Hard' it's about how audacious the action is," John Moore, the film's director, told the news source. "So you have to drive over a Lamborghini. An actual one. And yes it hurts me. I'm a car fanatic."
