In the United Kingdom, a driver has wrecked his brand new Ferrari supercar in an accident after owning it for just one hour.
Thankfully, the driver only suffered cuts and bruises after the Ferrari 430 went airborne and burst into flames in South Yorkshire on Thursday.
The Ferrari is one of only 499 ever sold with an original listing price of $288,000. These supercars are currently being sold between $80,000 to $220,000 according to one dealer.
When officers arrived on the scene, firefighters were already dousing the car which was 50 meters off the main M1 freeway.
The Ferrari 430 Scuderia can reach 60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds. It can also top speed of 198 miles per hour.
But in a statement on Friday, police said they “do not believe excess speed was a contributory factor in this collision.”
