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.
