A British man paid $260,000 for a brand new Ferrari 430 Scuderia, only to total it an hour later.
Local Police posted Twitter photos of the smoking, wrecked car, saying it “went airborne (and) burst into flames” beside a highway in northern England.
The police said in a Facebook statement that the driver “only had minor cuts and bruises” after Thursday’s smash, but they also detected “a sense of damaged pride.”
That sounds like it might be an understatement.
