Ferrari Wrapped Around a Pole

It's a story and picture made for the internet. The driver and his passenger escaped with only minor injuries when the £100,000 Ferrari met a utility pole in Adelaide, Australia. The front half of the car was split in two.
Pictures of the crashed vehicle resulted in one internet blogger commenting: 'I wonder what action the police will take with an idiot driving a Ferrari.'

Another commentator said: 'We're making a few assumptions here, but when a young guy is driving a Ferrari worth a quarter of a million bucks, and then splits it almost in two, someone's going to be grounded for life.'

See full-size pictures at the Mail Online. Link -Thanks, Moi!

quote from article: "The prang left the engine and bonnet wrapped around the structure"

Uhh no it didn't... it might have left the bonnet (that's the hood for you American fellas) in serious need of a dent remover, but the engine in a 360 was in the back (behind the driver) last time I looked.

The link is dead.

This looks like a photo shopped picture. Light poles are designed to snap off at the bottom in order to prevent intrusions in the vehicle like this. It would be more believable if it were a tree or bridge support.

It's definitely real, here's the article from the local news. Just so you know, we don't use the pound here in Australia ;)

@ Miss C.

A prang is slang for a crash... generally due to a stupid error of judgement and (usually) one where no-one gets seriously hurt / killed.

Dates from at least WW1 Royal Flying Corps... "pranged the kite on landing old boy" ...that sort of thing ;)

Just looks so horrid because it doesn't have the engine up front. The pole can sink into the car much easier.

And please post a daily mail warning. ;)
