All we can say is, we feel your pain.

A motoring journalist for CAR Online, videotaping himself driving the just-launched 2012 Ferrari FF four-wheel-drive shooting brake on a limited-invitation press event, manages to ... ummm ... drive over a curb.

Or as he might say, "kerb."

His reaction is completely predictable, and largely unprintable.

Watch the video below.

But, frankly, we can only sympathize. At far lower speeds, on equally narrow roads, we managed to scrape the wheel of a 2011 Bentley Mulsanne against a granite curb in a very small Scottish town during our test drive.

Bentley being British, the reaction was considerably more gracious than we suspect the Italians' may be.
