Mechanic wrecks £2.5million Ferrari after smashing into tree stump on test drive
A bright red Enzo sports car which is one of only 400 made, has been totalled by a mechanic who smashed into a tree stump on a test drive.
The crash took place in the town of Baarn, just southeast of Amsterdam, on Tuesday January 18.
The £2.5million Ferrari suffered significant damage in the collision, in which its airbags were deployed, including two wheels having been ripped away along with several suspension pieces.
A local dealership mechanic was behind the wheel of the Enzo, and it was gathered that he escaped the incident unhurt after being taken to hospital for a check-up.
A witness to Tuesday’s smash in Baarn, Netherlands, said:
“I think he wanted to turn back to the dealership.”
Initially costing £450,000 when launched, the Enzos have since hugely increased in value. Most recently, a 2003 Ferrari Enzo was sold in August last year by RM Sotheby’s for $3,360,000 (£2,463,132).
