Ferrari 430 Scuderia crashed on the German Autobahn A9

An owner of a rear-wheeldrive Ferrari 430 Scuderia in Germany now regrets using his supercar in going to Berlin in the harsh winter season. While others would have left the 430hp supercar and instead ride a Porsche Cayenne with AWD, the 41-year-old brought out his vehicle with its V8 engine, thinking that the car could handle it.

Apparently, it couldn’t and he lost control of the car last Saturday. A report from Wochenblatt stated that the Ferrari 430 Scuderia crashed on the German Autobahn A9. Every panel on the car has been destroyed and burned and its wheels were damaged to the spokes.

The driver escaped the crash unhurt but his passenger, his teen son, left with a minor hand injury. P.S. Make sure you check world's most expensive car crash with eight Ferrari's involved!

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confiscated a 2008 Ferrari Scuderia from a driver who was racing up Mount Seymour last September at speeds of up to 200 km/h (124 mph). This driver who came from North Vancouver was behind the wheel of the Ferrari special, which is priced at $235,000 (EUR175,000). The provincial government said that the car has been sold already at a local dealership.

This car was racing against a 2008 BMW M6, which will be auctioned on the province’s B.C. Auction website. Since British Columbia’s civil forfeiture legislation was introduced in 2006, the Italian supercar is the most expensive that its police has ever impounded.

About 50% of the money raised from selling the car has been given to a relative of the driver, who is listed as the vehicle’s owner. The reckless driver received 30%, while the government got the remaining 20%.
