Ferrari 456 Driver Loses Control, Slams Into Volkswagen: Video

Moments before the Ferrari 456 crashes

This is video of one very expensive mistake: having apparently overcooked a left turn through this damp intersection, the driver of a Ferrari 456 lost the back end and entered a slide that terminated in the front end of a waiting VW Gol.

The unfortunate Gol driver was the only person injured, suffering several broken bones. The Ferrari destroyer was unhurt.

While you can pick up a used 456 for not much more than $30,000 these days, it's worth remembering that a decade ago, it was retailing for about five times that, and that it still packs a 5.5-liter, 436-horsepower V-12 engine. Or at least it would have been worth remembering for the clown that destroyed this one.

  1. Another "exotic" accident caused by an "exotic" car or "super" accident caused by a "super" car; and the list goes on and on. I think is about time the law gets tougher with the people who own these cars and enforces a special driving license that reflects satisfactory completion of classes taken at high performance driving schools. Luxury apart, those cars are not very different in performance than their racing versions and at the end of the day, you need special skills and reflexes to drive a super car. Apparently, money can buy you the expensive toy, but not the skills. After many accidents, it just took another (fatal)one involving a water jet and a celebrity yacht in Miami to come up with a law that regulates riding water jets since.
