Newlywed couple crashes rented Ferrari 458 Spider after the wedding

Article by Christian A., on April 21, 2016

Weddings take time to prepare. Brides stress over stuff just to create the perfect wedding – from the color combination of flowers and the table cloth, down to the very minute details such as their bridesmaids’ nail polish.

On the other hand, grooms care about writing the flawless wedding vow and trying not to say anything that could ruin the whole event; and there’s showing up on time, too. So basically, the “perfect” wedding is ideally having a flawless ceremony and reception just hours away from settling into the whole married life; that is, having to deal with each other’s uncanny behaviour and then starting a life with kids.

Some couples like their wedding extra special like hot fudge sundae with a cherry on top. Others try to recreate movie scenes while some go the extra mile (or dollar, that is) to have a bit of a special time with the ones they love.

Take for example a newly wedded couple from Burnley, Lancashire in the United Kingdom who chose to ride off into the sunset after saying their wedding vows. The couple rented a $340,000 white Ferrari 458 Spider from the company Platinum Executive Travel (PET).

The couple would’ve had the perfect movie-esque conclusion to their wedding when unfortunately, the would-have-been romantic movie scene quickly escalated into a Fast and Furious action movie.

The newlyweds must have been in a rush to consummate their marriage or there must have been some direction argument going on because unfortunately, the driver lost control over the car and crashed it into a wall. Poor, 458 Spider.

The 4.5-liter V8 powered 458 Spider crashed into a wall into a house at a residential where the couple was driving through. We’re not sure why they crashed into the wall but if it was because they were arguing about the direction then sure enough this couple would be in for some married life adventure (and misadventure). As for the rent-a-car company PET, this isn’t the first time that one their vehicles became involved in a road mishap.

It’s not unheard of for supercar-lending companies to experience a couple of car wrecks per year. Sometime in 2014, PET had four cars destroyed in a matter of five weeks that resulted to damage costs of $710,000. One mishap involved a PET employee who crashed a yellow Lamborghini Aventador which apparently was blamed to London’s torrential rain. Another involves another Aventador that was apparently torched at a wedding by jealous family members. Crazy, isn’t it?

What’s amazing is that PET is positive that the damaged white Ferrari 458 Spider will soon get back on track after a three week vacation to the mechanic. In the hands of inexperienced drivers, a supercar such as the Ferrari 458 Spider can be very overwhelming.

It can take you to amazing speeds but it can also take you to the hospital. Cars like these require skill, control and tender loving care. Let’s just hope the next couple to rent out a special car such as the 458 Spider would take care of it and end their wedding day happily watching the sun set instead of ending up dumbfounded after a crash.
