A Ferrari 599 GTB has been involved in a spectacular crash in Italy recently after the valet who was driving it decided to take it for a spin around the block.

According to the local media, this particular Ferrari 599 GTB has been taking part in a car rally but it ended up the way it does after its valet has decided to take it for a spin around the block. The valet was supposed to take it from the hotel to the transporter but he thought that it would be a good idea to go for a joy ride first. After pushing the throttle hard, he lost control of the wheel and crashed into a store. The supercar has been completely destroyed but the good news is that no one was injured in the incident.

Ferrari has been putting the 599 GTB together in Maranello between 2006 and 2012. This was designed by Frank Stephenson at Pininfarina and it was unveiled at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, in February. It came as a replacement for the 575M Maranello and it had a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power was being provided by a 6.0 liter V12 engine, rated at 612 HP (456 kW) and 608 Nm (448 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration was made in 3.7 seconds and top speed of the supercar stood at just over 330 km/h (205 mph). The 599 GTB has been replaced by the F12 Berlinetta.
