The car never made it there because, on the way, the worker somehow lost control of the vehicle and smashed it into no fewer than five parked cars and a metal barrier for good measure, ESPN confirms. Photos and videos of the aftermath of the crash have emerged on social media and are starting to go viral. A few of them are embedded at the bottom of the page, just in case you wanted to see how someone’s week could possibly be worse than yours.
With its naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the 812 Superfast is Ferrari’s most powerful car. The assumption that the car wash worker was not prepared for the kind of machine he was about to drive makes sense. Marchetti was reportedly furious when he found out about what had happened, which is completely understandable.
However, days after the crash, he went on social media to highlight the one good thing to come out of all the mess – and a mess it was, since the Superfast is a write-off. That would be the fact that no one got hurt, despite the severity of the crash. He’s also urging people to lay off the poor car wash worker for what was essentially an accident. Apparently, people had been writing very mean things about him on social media.
Well, at least he got the Superfast washed first, right? Because that’s an impressively sparkly pile of $340,000 junk.
