British buff book breaks Ferrari FF

The chaps at CAR magazine discovered the difficulty of talking to the camera while simultaneously driving a car when they crashed their Ferrari FF while trying to do just that. UPDATE!


The reviewer, Jethro Bovingdon, rightly freaks out after smashing what is a $285K car. Perhaps he was bothered because he said the words "It seems to work really really well" right before the accident. Followed by him running out to assess the damage, getting into the car, chanting "Oh my god" and "No, no no" repeatedly.

Here's Bovingdon's take on what happened via Twitter after the video was posted.
With no photos of the crash, CAR is doing auto journalism a major disservice, since crashing a Ferrari FF is the story if you do it. Mind crawling out from under the rock to share some photos?


Update: Some commenters found photos he posted via his phone to the web of the car pre-accident. Turns out it's he crashed a British Racing Green FF and there's some disagreement over whether this is a good or a bad thing.

UPDATE II: Apparently, he was given the green car before-and-after the wreck but damaged a blue one. You can see one dinky photo of it here.
