Aussie Bisects Ferrari 360 Modena Front End With Pole, Miraculously Survives

Illustration for article titled Aussie Bisects Ferrari 360 Modena Front End With Pole, Miraculously Survives

A couple of knuckleheads in the Australian town of Walkerville managed to wrap the front third of a Ferrari 360 Modena quite effectively around a telephone pole and walk away with only minor injuries. Eyewitnesses report the car was speeding around the local roads (surprise!) and as you can see, the eventual accident was pretty incredible, with the pole intruding to the point where it takes the space normally occupied by, say, the shifter over the transmission tunnel. With yesterday's Lamborghini Gallardo sliced in half width-wise and now a Ferrari split down the middle, it's like learning automotive biology by supercar dissection around here.

Crikey! Next up, a Top Gear Australia challenge: What's the fastest way to get across Walkerville during rush hour? Ferrari 360 Modena on the streets, overland in a Roo pouch, or by air in the Mad Max Gyrocopter? And each while downing a case of Fosters, ooh de lally!
