The driver of a Ferrari 355 Berlinetta has managed to crash his ride in Australia after pushing the throttle too hard and losing control of the wheel.
Exotic and powerful supercars combined with the lack of experience and a “small” thought of “watch this!” are probably the worst case scenarios for every owner, but examples like this one will continue to keep headlines until people will have to get a different driver’s license before being allowed to buy or drive a powerful car. The newest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming from Australia, where a Ferrari 355 Berlinetta has most likely seen better days.
According to Wrecked Exotics, the driver of the Italian supercar has lost control of the wheel, ploughing in someone’s garden fence. The driver said that the accelerator pedal got stuck but witnesses were saying that he was playing with his ride. Fortunately no one was injured in the event, which is more than we can say about the supercar. The incident took place in Melbourne, Australia. The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta was unveiled back in May 1994 and it was the first ever road car to get the innovative F1-style transmission management system back in 1997. Ferrari has produced 4,871 units of the F355 Berlinetta.
