DFA: 458 Spider Wrecked in a Day

This week's Dumb F. Award goes to a Ferrari 458 Spider owner who managed to wreck his ride on the day it was bought.

As the oldadage goes: "there are Ferrari owners and there are Ferrari drivers." Thisparticular individual is the perfect example of the former having attempted asimple overtake in his brand-spanking-new Ferrari 458 Spider and ended up in a wreck upagainst the guard rail. According toItalian publication La Repubblica, the Ferrari was registered on themorning of the accident. By the time the police had arrived to survey thescene in southern Italy, the 550hp supercar and occupants had vanished into thin air.

The incident, however, was filmed by a passenger in the sedan the 458 was attempting to overtake. Enthusing about his beloved carmaker (note the Ferrari seatbelts in the back), the young cameraman only has eyes for the 458 throughout the lame overtaking maneuver and subsequent fail.
