430 Scuderia Accident...

This year must have broken all records of crashed supercars. This time the crash happened in Florida and itís a 430 Scuderia that was heavily damaged after crashing in the back of a van. At least it looks like that untill we start watching details.

There are no skid marks from the Scuderiaís tires and the accident happened at the beginning of a driveway. We believe itís more than likely that the van backed up right onto the nose of the 430 Scuderia. If so, this must be one of the worst days for the driver to bring the kids home from school.

OUCH! That's painful to look at, but looks like "minor" damage.....you know, "only" about $25,000 worth!

current Ferraris: 1995 F355 Spider, 2000 360F1 Modena

Stand up and be counted, or lay down and be mounted.

I thought for a second that Tiger was driving the 430 but I knew it couldnt have been him because there were no 3 iron marks on the side windows.
