Why you should never lend a Ferrari to your son!
The holidays may be a time of giving and the spirit of the season may leave you feeling that your offspring deserve a bit of special attention, however the consequences of handing over the keys to an exotic Italian sports car with more horsepower then their heavy little right feet can handle can be a risky proposition. Form our friends at Wrecked Exotics we can show you these firsthand accounts of two different family instances that their father’s would rather not talk about to make you think twice about spreading Christmas cheer.
The first accident happened in Newport Beach, CA on Christmas Eve. The 90 year old California native gave his 70 year old son a brand new Ferrari F430. They then let the grandson go for an unsupervised spin in the F430 with his cousin riding shotgun, unfortunately the car lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic where the Ferrari crashed head on into a tow truck. Tragically the passenger did not survive the impact and the driver remains in critical condition. The second occurrence happened in Romania and this time involved a drop top Ferrari F430 Spider. The kid driving the car lost control and crashed into an opposing car, however unlike the previous accident, he was unharmed.
