Remember the retro racing game OutRun, in which you drove the Ferrari down picturesque roads really fast to try and woo your lady passenger? We reckon this dude was doing the same thing.
The difference, though, is if you push too hard in OutRun, you’ll have the comical crash causing the Ferrari to flip and eject the occupants before carrying on unscathed like nothing happened.
That is not how it works in real life. The 26-year-old male hot head rented this V8-powered Ferrari 458 Italia back in August 2015 with the female friend as part of the three-supercar convoy on mountain roads in Colorado. And, testosterone, inexperience, and arrogance is a recipe for the accident waiting to happen.
Despite the passenger’s pleas, this driver does what anyone would do behind the wheel of the Ferrari for the first time: he floors it.
Unluckily, he forgot to account for corners: he underestimates the tight bend, the Ferrari understeers, and the supercar plows into a guardrail, causing some serious damage.
Nobody was hurt in this accident, but the damage to the mid-engined supercar was estimated at the whopping $270,000. Ouch. And the GoPro footage doesn’t do the speed of the crash justice.
