Ferrari driver attempts to use a drive-through that doesn't exist

Sir, this is not a Wendy's

1y ago

A Ferrari F430 driver failed to execute a basic left hand turn and faceplanted into the front window of popular West Hollywood restaurant Pump during a busy Sunday brunch. Shattered glass was seen all over the patio and dining room.

One witness to the incident — who spoke to the driver — said the driver was not intoxicated and simply appeared to lose control. The driver claims that another car cut him off.

The crowd who was gathered on the sidewalk had a less than sympathetic view with one onlooker overheard saying "this was the best thing they were going to see all day". The driver drew laughs from the crowd when he got out of the car and revealed he was wearing Ugg boots.

Authorities say no-one was seriously injured in the crash although one customer had some minor cuts from the shattered window. She was taken to a local hospital to get checked out.

The Ferrari, which was wearing BOOOMR3 registration plates, was able to start and be reversed out of the restaurant. The damage to the vehicle appeared to be mostly superficial front end damage although the car did dump antifreeze all over the pavement.

The internet was rife with speculation of the crash being a publicity stunt for restaurant owner Lisa Vanderpump's upcoming reality show, given the age of the vehicle and the relatively minor damage. Online vehicle history reveals that the Ferrari is a 2005 F430 and was sold in 2005 for $180,785.

Can't afford to drive your own Ferrari into a restaurant?

Well then, why not spend far less on a remote-control Ferrari instead? Please note that DriveTribe does not condone driving it into restaurants.

  • If you drive a Ferrari in Ugg boots. Yeah you deserve to trash it.
