Man Manages To Crash Brand New Ferrari Within An Hour Of Buying It

Man Manages To Crash Brand New Ferrari Within An Hour Of Buying It

Very little equates to the feeling you get when you buy a new car.

The possibilities of the stuff you can do surges adrenaline through your body, and you never want to stop driving. You want to hit speeds, blast the stereo as loud as possible, be that guy who gives lifts to your annoying mates who shout things out of the windows. It's all part of having a new motor.

What isn't on the agenda, though, is crashing the new vehicle shortly after purchasing it. This guy clearly didn't get that agenda and ended up writing off his brand new Ferrari.

Police released pictures of the wrecked £260,000 Ferrari 430 Scuderia which had been in the fella's possession for no more than an hour.

The driver luckily came away from the crash with a few cuts and bruises, with the most pain coming from his "damaged pride."

Commuters around Junction 37 of the M1 got stuck because of the incident, with South Yorkshire Police Operational Support posting on Facebook: "Afternoon folks, were you stuck in traffic this afternoon on the M1 south around junction 37? If so, here's why.

"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."

The post continued: "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".

"The serious part of this post: Over the past couple of weeks there has been a number of collisions where driving styles have not reflected the road & weather conditions - please take more care.

"Ps. Here's a couple of pictures of the previously mentioned sporty motor - for those who aren't very knowledgeable on cars, it was a Ferrari 430 Scuderia."

Even though it's the opposite of what supercars are made for, it might be worth driving them 20 miles per hour everywhere. Just until you get it under control.

Ask Richard Hammond, he keeps driving cars at ridiculous speeds and, well, you know how it ends...
