Some people won’t eat a banana with brown spots, but they would buy a wrecked exotic in a heartbeat to do God only knows what with it. No matter how big a car guru you think you are, you won’t be able to save most of them, and here we’d mention the Ferrari 488 Spider pictured in our gallery.
Located in Long Island, NY, and completely destroyed by fire, almost beyond recognition if it weren’t for the front left side, with the quarter panel, headlight, part of the door, side mirror, bumper, frunk, and even the wheel, brake disc, and yellow caliper, it is advertised by Copart and will go under the digital gavel soon.

Judging by the pics that they shared, it appears that it was involved in some kind of an accident prior to catching fire, as the left rear wheel is misaligned. However, that is pure assumption, as it could have suffered more damages during transport, before arriving in the big parking lot where these photos were taken.

As for the what one can do with it, we think that the wheel would make for an interesting coffee table, and the headlight and prancing horse logo on the quarter panel might bedeck some parts of the house. Beyond that, its future owner, assuming that it will indeed change hands at the upcoming auction, could put it on a shelf in the garage and brag about owning a Ferrari. Depending on how well they play this card, they might get some free drinks at the bar.

Don’t even think about the engine, because it is totally unrecognizable. This was a turbo’d 3.9-liter V8, with 661 hp and 561 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque, which used to rocket it to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.0 seconds, and up to 203 mph (325 kph).
