The facts date back to Tuesday, January 19, in the morning, on a portion of the West Yorkshire motorway. It is not known exactly how the beautiful Ferrari ended up on its back, but it is assumed that with the strong wind and downpours, the driver simply lost control of his supercar. The lightness of his 812 Superfast unfortunately failed him, for once.
Ironically, a Ferrari dealership is located a few kilometers from the scene of the accident. But the latter has been contacted by local media and he assures him, he has nothing to do with this vehicle and will not be able to do anything for its unhappy owner.

This is not just any car that has turned violently on the highway. Indeed, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is estimated at € 275,000 new. This price is justified by its irreproachable aesthetics but also by its extraordinary characteristics. Its 6.5-liter V12 easily develops 788 horsepower for a 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds and a top speed of 340 km / h (of course it is not advisable to drive at such a pace, especially in the middle of a storm).
The total damage to the car has not been estimated, or at least not yet revealed, but when we see the general condition of the car, it is certain, it will cost an arm and a leg. But it is not even certain that the beautiful Italian is repairable given the extent of the damage.
