Woman destroys £500k Ferrari 458 just moments after declaring the new supercar ‘amazing’ during her maiden drive

The car spirals out of control and slams into the road barrier in Wenling, within China’s eastern Zhejiang province, moments after its driver stopped at a traffic light to praise the vehicle

THIS is the moment a driver destroys a Ferrari 458 after losing control of the supercar worth nearly half a million pounds and slamming into a BMW.

Incredible footage circulating on social media has also allegedly captured the woman bragging about being behind the wheel of the pricey supercar, which she rented from a dealership in Wenling city, eastern China.

In the short clip believed to have been filmed by the woman while she was waiting at the lights, she points the camera at the Ferrari’s dashboard and says: "First time driving a Ferrari.

"This truly is the most amazing feeling."
But traffic cameras on the busy city-centre road show the car suddenly swerving out of control and slamming head-on into a metal traffic barrier and a BMW X3, which also collides with the unsuspecting driver of a black Nissan saloon.

In spite of what appeared to be a low-speed crash, footage taken by witnesses in the aftermath of the accident showed the front end of the Ferrari 458 completely destroyed and its airbags deployed.
She and her female passengers were not seriously injured.

The vehicle is reported to have been purchased by the rental dealership for the astronomical import price of more than £463,000, while the cost to mend the damaged Italian sports car has been estimated at half that amount.

It is unclear if the woman was insured and whether it would cover the damage.

Social media users have suggested the woman may have turned off the car’s traction control before the crash, which would explain how the vehicle suddenly spun out of control. (The SUN)
