Surprise! $528,000 Ferrari F50 Driven By Shirtless Asshat Crashes

Have you seen that video of some shirtless asshat weaving through Manhattan traffic in a black Ferrari F50 like he was driving a fartcan Civic? Yeah, well, that Ferrari didn't last long — it's in a Connecticut insurance salvage yard now, crashed and totaled.

I don't exactly know how this particular F50 ended up totaled, but there are a few things that I can say for sure:

  • It crashed into something pretty damn hard.
  • We don't know who was driving the car at the time of the crash.
  • The driver wasn't injured.
  • The car appears to be the last F50 to be sold in the US, reports Motoramic.
  • It sold for $528,000 in 2002.
  • It got a new 4.7 liter V12 from the factory after it blew its original.
  • It's infamous for a couple of public-roads asshat driving videos in Manhattan.
  • It's been totaled by its insurance company.
  • The bidding for the car is at $103,000.

What's interesting about this is that it's been totaled. A pristine F50 recently went for $1.7 million, and it's unbelievable to think that the car couldn't be repaired and re-sold without making a profit around that price. That said, repairs can't be cheap (Motoramic points out that a new engine can run a hundred grand, for instance).

Motoramic also reports that rumors are going around that carbon monoxide leaked into the car's cabin, making the driver pass out and letting him crash into a tree. The speed of the impact is rumored to be around 50 miles an hour.

Of course, given how it's been driven lately (see video above), I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the driver crashed in more reprehensible conditions.
