Not sure why exactly, but rare super cars are crashing left and right all over Europe these days. Yesterday we told you about this Spyker C8 getting almost totaled in Latvia. And now this, an extremely rare and expensive Ferrari F50.
This silver F50 was apparently driving to the Silverstone circuit on a lovely sunny morning for a meeting. The whiff of the track must have gotten into the driver as he reportedly pushed the car too hard and lost control of it as a result. People often forget that cars like the F40 and F50 have no electronic safety control like their modern hyper cars. They need to be treated with care and respect, otherwise they will bite your head off.
Beside the obvious damage to the body work, this silver Ferrari F50, which is incidentally one of the rarest colors for this car, will probably need new suspension component and one of two new wheels. And that is if the mid-mounted V12 engine, which is bolted directly to the chassis and therefore kind of more exposed to the elements, has not suffered from any major damage.
Yep, that is going to be one fat repair bill. Tough luck, insurance company!
