Someone opening the window just to hear the exhaust of Ferrari and then see this car go straight into barrier!

And from the car it looks like it is a high speed crash. Yes, one more 599 unit sold, but obviously this was out of causal driving I feel.

Default Ferrari crashed and driver walks unhurt: Look at the car!

Cristiano Ronaldo writes off Ferrari in Manchester crash | Manchester United - Times Online

Just look at the pics of the car after the crash! Times says he walked away without a scratch!!!

Imagine if Ronaldo was driving a M800 instead of a Ferrari (Either there would have been no accident (most likely case) or we would have lost the best football player in the world (currently).

Mods: Dont know if this is the place for this thread. Please move appropriately.

Oops. Mea Culpa. Read that as Porsches

I guess CR7 should be shown that "Sultan of Michigan" garage. Atleast then he would stop buying more Porsches :P

Thats a bad bad crash. Wheels lay 200 yards behind the car!!!! The footballer is indeed blessed to walk out of the car without a scratch.

Looks like Fergie is really strict about the players coming late for training!

Guys

Cant this be restored.... can it not be rebuilt.. does this mean that all cars that meet such ordeals have to go to the junkyard?

I mean if someone had to meet with an accident like this what are his options knowing that the guy is not CR!


Cheers

The owner has no options. When a supercar is hit hard, the repair costs more than 50% of the price of a new car. Thus, the insurance company will salvage it.
