This driver was fast – and is probably now furious.
An ill-fated motorist crashed his brand new Ferrari in spectacular fashion – just one hour after purchasing the more than $260,000 sports car.
Police said the Ferrari 430 Scuderia “went airborne” when it careened off a wet M1 highway in South Yorkshire Thursday, the BBC reported.
It rolled more than 160 feet down a bank and burst into flames in a field.
Luckily, the driver walked away with cuts and bruises – to both his body and ego.
“Officers asked the driver what sort of car he ‘had’ to which he replied, ‘It was a Ferrari,’” South Yorkshire Police said. “Detecting a sense of damaged pride he then said, ‘I’ve only just got it, picked it up an hour ago.’”
The department tweeted pictures of the unfortunate wreck – which reduced the Ferrari to a twisted pile of metal — saying it was a “miracle” the driver made it out alive.
