A not-so-gifted owner wrecks his Ferrari 488 Pista in a ridiculous way

When there is more money than brains...

Driving a supercar is a difficult exercise that cannot be improvised for the uninitiated. The enormous power developed by these vehicles requires a certain amount of time to adapt, especially when the car in question is rear-wheel drive. The owner of a Ferrari 488 Pista learned this the hard way in the Netherlands.

A motorist following the Italian supercar filmed the entire scene. Clearly in awe of the 488 Pista's rear end and the smooth vocals of its V8, which is not surprising, the person probably didn't expect to witness a live crash that would brutally end the car's career.

For some unknown reason, the driver of the Italian beauty suddenly started to accelerate. The instantaneous arrival of so much horsepower on the rear axle alone naturally destabilized the vehicle, which immediately veered to the left. The owner tried to straighten out the car by counter-steering to the right, which proved to be a little too effective.

The car swerved violently to the right and then went off the road and hit a fence at the edge of the road. The 720 PS and 770 Nm produced by the 3.9-litre V8 are definitely not for everyone. Last but not least, the car was bought new the day before the accident...
