Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Torn Apart During Crash: Video

Follow Viknesh

The driver of this Ferrari 612 Scaglietti was lucky to walk away from a crash that literally tore his car apart.

He was driving the bright red supercar on a road in Moscow, Russia, earlier this month when he allegedly lost control and careened into a roadside pole.

The fact that the force of the impact managed to tear his Ferrari in two strongly suggests that speed was a factor.

As pointed out by Carscoop, which first picked up the video, the car’s V-12 engine and front section remained stuck to the pole while the rest of the body was slung to the side.  

Despite the severity of the crash, which caused the airbags to deploy and rendered the car a write-off, the driver and three passengers he was carrying at the time escaped unscathed.

The 612 Scaglietti, which was replaced last year by the all-wheel drive FF, was Ferrari’s former flagship and came powered by a 5.7-liter V-12 delivering 532 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque.

  1. Doesn't that speak volumes how SAFE this supercar is?
    With 4 passengers and no one hurt (except the driver who had minor injuries) in a high-speed crash that breaks a car like that, the FERRARI deserves the highest award for safety....100%!
    No wonder a FERRARI is a FERRARI!

  2. Calm down, fanboy. This mainly speaks volumes about how foolish and lucky this driver was. The point of impact was the engine compartment, not the passenger section. No design is meant to compensate for a driver making stupid decisions.

  3. The voice says, it was a fault of a man crossing the road. Also the speed was over 150 m/h I guess. Both the driver and passenger are alive but in heavy condition hospitalized.

  4. Even with injuries I'm surprised all of them survived. This looks horrific. At certain speeds, organs can be damaged when coming to a stop so fast. I hope they make it out alright but anyone who chooses to speed with others in the car is a retard in my book. Doesn't matter if the conditions appear safe, as you never know..
