The driver of this Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was left embarrassed after requiring a Toyota Hilux to tow him out of a flooded part of the road. The driver of the Ferrari thought the car would make it through the flooded patch, but the engine cut out and the transmission became stuck in drive mode once the water entered the engine compartment.
The Berlinetta is powered by a 6.3L V12, producing 730BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of over 211MPH. When it was released at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the F12 was the fastest road-going Ferrari.
The incident occured in Cordoba, in the centre of Argentina. The car was travelling in part of a convoy, and reports state that other vehicles crossed the flooded patch of the road without trouble. The F12 was too close to the ground to do the same. Another Ferrari, a 458 Spider was behind the F12, and the driver was wise not to follow and have the same problem!
