This is a terrible investment.
There’s been a massive increase in supercar crashes recently,which has also increased the amount of damaged supercars in the market. We recentlybrought you a story about a wrecked Lamborghini Aventador that sold for $100K andwhile that was a horrendous deal, this heavily-damaged Ferrari 458 Speciale isan even worse deal at $69,000. The hardcore Ferrari is missing its entire frontend and is barely recognizable from the front. At least the wrecked Aventadorcould be recognized and had a chance of a second life.
The 458 Speciale is a track-focused supercar that features a4.5-liter V8 that’s good for 597 hp and could make the sprint to 62 mph in 3.0seconds. A brand new model in mint condition cost wealthy enthusiasts roughly $240K.This bargain supercar was involved in an accident in Johannesburg, South Africa, a few months ago with the driver losing control of the vehicle and hitting awall. While no one was injured in the accident, the supercar lost its entirefront end, has a broken windshield, is missing the driver’s side door and hasan engine that doesn’t run. The 458 Speciale is on sale in a timed auctionuntil December 10 with a starting bid of approximately $69,600.
