Silly Man Wedges A Gorgeous Ferrari In the Worst Place Possible - Can He Get It Out?

I’m not so sure this is just going to buff out

Imagine, for a moment, that you’re cruising around the streets of Italy in your $220,000 Italian Ferrari Roma. Life is good right? Well, yeah, obviously, but not if you’re the guy in this video that underestimated just how thin some of Italy’s roads are. Now, we’re not sure exactly what led to the events in the video below, but we can tell you that this man’s day went from good to bad faster than the Roma can get to 60 mph.

Ferrari Roma – Too Big for Italy’s Side Streets

In case you’re wondering, the Ferrari Roma hits 60 mph in around 3.2- 3.4 seconds depending on who you talk to, but based on what we see in the video, the owner of this Roma wasn’t trying to set any sprint records.

He was, however, capable of underestimating the width of that poor Roma as it seems to be wedged between those two buildings pretty good.

We can’t say how wide that road (or alley as we’d call it in America) really is, but the Roma isn’t exactly the smallest of vehicles. It comes in at 77.7-inches wide and 183.3-inches long. So it’s as wide as a Ferrari 488 Pista and a bit longer, too.

He’s managed to wedge his Roma between two buildings in what most of us would call a very thin alley

As for what happened after the short video stops is a complete mystery. One would assume that one of two things happen. The driver got back into the car and tried to back out, but if it was really wedged in there good, there’s option two: Call a tow track and have that baby jerked out of there. I’m not sure which option would lead to even more damage, but neither seems all that appealing to me. What I would like to know is if this guy is actually from Italy or if this was his first trip. Italy isn’t exactly known for wide streets – they are extremely thin in some cases and very hard to navigate – and that’s why superminis, as they are called in Europe, are so popular there. In some areas, you can’t negotiate a street properly with anything larger than a compact.

As for the Roma, it’s better off prancing down roads that it’s actually able to fit on.

Its 3.9-liter V-8 is good for 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque.

Outside of hit 60 mph in the low-three-second range, it can also it a top speed of 199 mph. The eight-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to the rear wheels. That said, the Roma isn’t the fastest, most powerful, or most expensive Ferrari on the market, but it is – arguably – the prettiest, and it’s a shame to see it stuck between two buildings in the very place it was born.
