Another blow for Ferrari fans. This one though is much heavier than a Laferrari crash. One of the most beautiful cars in the world, a Ferrari 275 GTB or simply Daytona was burned to crisp by a bunch of thieves who stole it from a garage in Australia. The car was valued at over 2.5M dollars. Apparently it was burned to get rid of any evidence. You can't sell a stolen Daytona anyways so the thieves must have no idea what they were jacking.

This is just horrible! I hope they rot in hell!

I'm sure there must be ways of selling even a car as rare as the Daytona. Either as a whole or in parts its worth a lot of money.

Its a very " hot" car to be sold. They are so rare and well documented that an original one like this would be too hard to sell. People who would buy parts for daytona would be collectors most probably and wouldn't buy parts from a stolen car. They also stole a Ferrari 308 I think along with the daytona.

Ferrari California Crashes In Hong Kong

Quote:

A 31-year old woman in China crashed her Ferrari California in the early hours of Monday morning. The incident occurred near to the Aberdeen Tunnel in Hong Kong, when the driver had to brake suddenly, and somehow got the accelerator pedal and brake pedal mixed up. Instead of braking sharply, the driver gave the Ferrari full throttle for roughly 300 meters, clipping three roadside barriers and coming to rest against a tree.

The owner, a timber magnate from the Lebanon, lost control of the vehicle and left the main road, causing the car to career into a lamp post before coming to rest next to some tram lines. The incident resulted in delays to the tram system running through the capital.The car suffered major damage to its front bumper, splitter and nearside wheel arch. Thankfully, there were no reports of any injuries at the scene and the driver was not convicted of any driving offenses.

Wrecked Lamborghini Aventador Sells At Auction For £60,000

Quote:
This Lamborghini Aventador, involved in a roll-over accident, has been sold at auction in Dubai, fetching AED350,000 – converting to £60,000.The description of the Aventador states that the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over before coming to a stop. With such a low center of gravity, it’s difficult to understand how the previous owner managed to roll it. Repairing the vehicle will definitely not be cheap, but the new owner has stated that he intends to restore the Lamborghini to its original appearance.

Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale Involved In Deadly Accident In Indonesia

Quote:
The 24-year old driver of the exotic model was apparently racing a Ferrari when he lost control of the car. His ride went off the road and hit several pedestrians, leaving many injured and one dead, before coming to a full stop into a tree.

Local media reported that Wiyan Lautner, man guy behind the wheel of the Italian vehicle, was not driving under the influence, as he was tested for alcohol and drugs. The authorities are trying to determine the speed of the car at the time of the accident and are planning to bring a mechanic from Lamborghini to help them in their investigation.

Brand New Audi R8 V10 Test Drive Goes Down With A Crash

Quote:
A brand new Audi R8 V10 ended up looking like this after it was taken for a test drive, from Watford Audi, in the UK, by a potential customer.

Things quickly deteriorated as speed and the wet asphalt played a tricky combination, which left the R8 with its wheels facing towards the sky.

Preliminary details indicate that the driver clipped a curb and flipped the yellow supercar. However, despite the significant damage, the guy holding the wheel at the moment of impact didn't suffer any serious injuries.

Ok a lot of heartburn looking at the above posts. Maybe we need something to lift the spirits a bit and Mods I believe it belongs to this thread.

Do you guys remember the Ferrari Enzo that was split in half after it was crashed. Well it has been restored.

It looks beautiful now and was sold for a $1.75M.

Wow. I am speechless. It looks beautiful than ever and to my eyes, even better than the original.

Love ext/int combo of black/red which was the best combo to have in an F60, followed by yellow/black.
