Hotel valet crashes owner’s Ferrari 599 GTB in Rome image

A Ferrari 599 GTB has been completely ruined by a hotel valet who has taken it for a joy ride.

Being a valet parker and a petrol head too is not the best combination because you may end up doing things which will cost you a lot of money and your job. This is something a valet from a hotel in Rome has found out the hard way after taking a Ferrari 599 GTB for a joy ride. The guy took it for a spin in the early hours of the morning while the owner was still sleeping. Details on how the crash occurred are not known at this time but the Italian supercar has been completely destroyed and it will probably not be salvageable.

Ferrari has been producing the 599 GTB between 2006 and 2012 and this was offered in a two-door body style, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar was styled by Pininfarina and it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. Power was being provided by a 6.0 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, producing 612 HP (456 kW) at 7,600 rpm and 608 Nm (448 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,600 rpm. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needed 3.7 seconds and it could reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.0 seconds. Top speed stood at more than 330 km/h (205 mph). The 599 GTB was replaced by the F12 Berlinetta, which has been introduced in Geneva, back in 2012.
