Johannesburg - It’s never pleasant to see a wrecked car, but when it happens to be an exotic of the kind that dreams are made of, it becomes a more painful sight for those of the petrolhead persuasion.
Such was the fate of a red Ferrari 488 Spider over the weekend, as we see in these pictures posted on Twitter by Reza (@crimeairnetwork).
According to the account, the driver "allegedly" lost control of the vehicle at high speed outside the Houghton Golf Club in Johannesburg.
The impact ripped a large section of the Ferrari’s front end off, but thankfully there have been no reported human injuries, the passenger compartment remaining intact and stable during the impact.
It will be an expensive mess however. The 488 Spider, which was launched in South Africa in May 2016, currently retails at R5.8-million.
