Ferrari F40 crashed during mechanic's test driveEnlarge Photo
As much as the Ferrari F40 has been surpassed in technology, comfort, and even performance, it remains an icon for many of us who savor the raw, unrestrained nature of a race car just barely made legal for the street. Sadly, that raw aggression can sometimes result in an early demise.
That's not the case with this mashed F40, though. It went head-to-head with a Dodge Dart and lost, or at best tied--both cars are significantly damaged. The F40 appears to have taken the worst of it, losing what appears to be more or less everything important in front of the A-pillar, or at the very least beyond the front axle line.
So how did this F40 meet its end? As reported by The Garage Blog, a mechanic at Ferrari of Ontario was out testing the F40 when the Dart driver ran a red light and smashed the F40's nose in. It's a sad, stupid way for an F40 to end up requiring extensive repair.
