A driver lost control of his new £200,000 Ferrari and careered off a motorway before it burst into flames — after owning it for just an hour.
The high-performance Ferrari 430 Scuderia was reduced to a twisted wreck after the smash on the M1 near junction 37 in South Yorkshire on Thursday afternoon.
Police described how the car “went airborne” in the wet conditions.
The driver walked away with just cuts and bruises.
And maybe, one hopes, a sense of humility.
