Englishman Destroyed a £200,000 Ferrari 430 Scuderia – Moments after Taking Delivery [Via Corsa Magazine]

Freaky Friday

Yorkshire, England – Per a Guardian report, a man had a devastating crash in his new Ferrari 430 Scuderia having just picked it up from the dealer.

On the M1 motorway, the 430 veered off the road and fell down an embankment 50 meters down, then engulfed in flames. The driver survived the crash with only minor cuts and bruises. His new 430 Scuderia, on the other hand, suffered a much worse fate.

Police officials on the scene said that the road conditions were slick. Fire and police officials responded quickly to the South Yorkshire overpass to quell the fire. The car was hardly noticeable due to the damage.

When they questioned the driver, with an almost defeatist response, he gave, “It was a Ferrari. I’ve just got it, picked it up an hour ago.”

Always Be Mindful

Devastating news from an automotive enthusiast perspective. This man having just received his car from the dealership, and then this happens. It is not known if this was his only Ferrari model, but owners are well aware of the lengthy process to possess one.

Not to say this man drove irresponsibly since driving conditions were sub-optimal, it is awful to see. With great responsibility, comes great care. Drivers, no matter what model they are driving, should be aware to take the necessary precautions when driving.

But when it is something like a 430 Scuderia fresh from the dealership? Always better to be safe then sorry when taking one of your most prized possessions out in bad weather conditions.

Everyone have a great weekend driving your adventure! If it’s raining or hazardous weather, stay in and work on your sports car, rather than the alternative!

Also, 30 years ago, in 1987, Lamborghini was purchased by Chrysler and Lamborghini began design of the 3.5 liter V12 engine for the French Formula 1 team Larrousse.

Roger Wiersema and Michael Palmieri, Co-Chief Judges for the Lamborghini Club America (LCA), coordinated by Andrew Romanowski, President of LCA, will lead the LCA judging effort with the support of an experienced and highly talented team of judges covering approximately five classes of vintages and types. LCA judging is open to all Lamborghinis and will be judged using the LCA judging instructions and scoring sheet available at the LCA website.
