The owner of a red Ferrari 599 GTB in Hong Kong managed to crash his rare and expensive super car in a way that it is barely recognizable now. The 43-year old driver apparently lost control of the car when he swerved to avoid hitting an animal that was on the road.
So either he is a very kind-hearted man, or a massive lier who made up this story to cover the fact that he was drunk. Hopefully the former is true. Whatever the cause, this Ferrari 599 GTB is a complete write off. The rear end is largely intact, but everything else is pretty much demolished and it really isn’t worth salvaging.
Looking at these pictures we can’t help but appreciate the fact that the 599 is made of aluminum rather carbon fiber. Unlike the metal, carbon won’t bend upon impact. It just shatters, which means a collision of this magnitude could have probably killed the driver if he was in, say, a LaFerrari. That’s something to think about.
The only solace we can find in this incident is that the owner of the Ferrari might be able to sell the parts of the car that aren’t damaged as spares and get at least some of the three or four hundred thousand dollars he’s spent on it.
