A 60-year old driver of this Ferrari 599 GTO has managed to crash his ride in Germany after losing control of the wheel and leaving the highway.
Crashed exotic supercars keep popping into our news weekly and the most recent example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from Germany, where a Ferrari 599 GTO has definitely seen better days. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question was driven by a 60-year old man, who managed to lose control of the wheel. The ride left the highway and stopped into some bushes. The 60-year old driver walked away, uninjured.
The Ferrari 599 GTO has been officially unveiled back in 2010. The model in question is actually a road going version of the 599XX and it used to be the fastest road car ever produced in Maranello, with the ability to lap the Fiorano test circuit in just 1 minute and 24 seconds, being one second faster than the much more expensive Enzo. The unit found under its hood was producing 661 HP (493 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 620 m (460 lb-ft) of torque, at 6,500 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint was made in less than 3.35 seconds and top speed stood at more than 335 km/h (208 mph).
