I’ve never owned a new car in my life, so I can’t exactly relate to the feeling one gets behind the wheel of a brand new vehicle — especially if it’s a Ferrari. And for the guy in this story he got to experience that feeling for exactly one hour. Let us explain.
South Yorkshire Police took it to Facebook to release photos of a wrecked $300,000 Ferrari 430 Scuderia. And hey, collisions happen. But what makes this accident so baffling is the amount of time that the owner of the car was in possession of his new car before he did this to it.
Dude Wrecks New Ferrari Just 1 Hour After Buying It
Here’s what police had to say on Facebook:
Officers were deployed to a single vehicle collision with reports that the vehicle had left the carriageway and burst in to flames. Road conditions were wet at the time and as officers arrived on scene it became clear there was a vehicle well alight and colleagues from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue were in attendance squirting water all over some kind of sporty motor some 50 or so meters down a banking… As we are an inquisitive bunch we found the driver and were amazed to see he only had minor cuts and bruises!
Officers asked the driver what sort of car he ‘had’ to which he replied “It was a Ferrari”. Detecting a sense of damaged pride he then said “I’ve only just got it, picked it up an hour ago”.
Damn. What an hour it must have been.
Police say that speed was not a factor so it seems like it was just a batch of bad luck that hit that poor dude. Thankfully he’s alright, but now he’s going to have to pick up his dates via public bus.
