Taxi Crashes into Velvet-Wrapped Ferrari in London

A strange velvet wrapped Ferrari 599 made headlines across the world last year. Many tabloids picked up on the idea and ran with it, calling it the "Furrari". It even sparked a short-lived trend which we think culminated when a London cab was covered in tiger print fur.

The sacrilege must have angered the gods of London cabs, who spoke out: "enough is enough, time to kill the Furrari". And so it happened the other day, when a taxi hit the front end of the famous 599.

As bad as it looks, the Furrari is still a very expensive supercar, worth about £100,000 used, if not a little more. So you can imagine the London taxi driver was a little shaken when he saw what he'd reversed into.
