In a video that has worsened our Monday blues, a woman driver crashed her Mercedes-Benz 380SL Roadster into a USD 300,000 Ferrari 458 Speciale. The incident took place at Katie’s Cars And Coffee in Great Falls, Virginia where the driver failed miserably to parallel park her Mercedes and ended up on the left-side of the bonnet of the magnificent 597 bhp Italian supercar. The Ferrari was participating in a weekly meet-up of car enthusiasts.
She tried to get her Mercedes off the Ferrari by accelerating forward but that only seems to have made matters worse. Thankfully no one was hurt. We do hope both the parties have their insurance in place because this one is going to be an expensive repair. A person who appears to be the owner of the damaged Ferrari is heard saying in the video that follows: “Are you f**king serious? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Here is the incident of the fiasco:
Here’s how the supercar looked after the Mercedes was taken off its bonnet:

The Ferrari 458 Speciale is one of the most exquisitely crafted Ferrari cars ever made. Its 595 hp of power, along with an extremely light kerb weight of only 1290 kg – 90kg less than the 458 Italia – makes the exotic accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 3.0 seconds and holds a Fiorano lap time of 1’23”5.
