Ferrari wrecked by driver an hour after he buys it

The remains of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

WHEN you spend $427,000 on a supercar, you probably want it to have a decent lifespan.

So it would be safe to assume the owner of the jet black Ferrari 430 Scuderia that crashed and burst into fireball just one hour after being purchased would be a little upset.

Police said the vehicle had left the carriageway due to wet road conditions before it burst into flames.

“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,” South Yorkshire Police Operational Support posted on Facebook.

“As we are an inquisitive bunch we found the driver and were amazed to see he only had minor cuts and bruises.”

Police said the driver was lucky to escape with nothing more than a bruised ego.

“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’, police wrote.

Police said the investigation did show any signs of dangerous driving.

“Following on from speaking to a number of witnesses, officers do not believe excess speed was a contributory factor in this collision,” police wrote.

Not much you can say, but poor dude.
