A storm has ripped a tree from its roots making it land on the body of a very rare Ferrari 599 GTO in China, causing some expensive damages to its aluminum body.
When writing about supercar incidents we’re used to seeing the drivers of the expensive rides crashing their vehicles into trees, not the other way around, but sadly for this 599 GTO owner, choosing to park his supercar outside during a storm had a sad result, after a tree has landed on top of it. The images were taken when the tree was still resting, with its branches, on the rare supercar. The incident took place in China and it will land a huge service bill into the owner’s pockets.
The Ferrari 599 GTO is the road going version of the 599XX and it was officially unveiled back in April, 2010. The model in question was the fastest Ferrari on the Fiorano track, in its time, lapping the circuit in 1 minute and 24 seconds, which is 1 second faster than the Enzo. The Italian supercar has 661 HP (493 kW), at 8,250 rpm, and 620 Nm (460 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,500 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.4 seconds and top speed stands at 335 km/h (208 mph).
