Looks like an expensive repairable.

Frankly Ferrari and Porsche might not be too happy at the way the cars have been used in Redline. Ferrari try to be picky about the potential owners but greed gets in somehow!

Sorry son, but it was sold at USD 600,000. It's another thing that they're now well over a million. And I've seen Accent CRDis with bald front tyres that have less understeer. That is truly godawful crappy handling, and anyone who sees the video will agree.

yup there was way too much understeer. this is just a thought but maybe the car handles like that when traction control is on???
i have not driven ferraris, but i know on lexus vehicles it is quite impossible to get the back out when traction control is on.

If you sell a car without a stereo or inside soundproofing, as a serious track tool, you don't put such a mollycoddling traction control system on it. Ferrari need to rethink their game.

not that much of a crash more of a fender bender but a £300,000 fender bender.

Prang with a bus costs Ferrari driver £300,000 | the Daily Mail

pity the bus company.

Not so simple. If the monocoque is compromised, a new one will need to be fitted. It's not so simple as taking a hammer and ironing it out. It's carbon fibre after all.
