F430 Wrecked in Singapore

This one is pretty bad but despite the pictures the driver walked away from this with just some cuts and nothing serious....

A Ferrari was left a mangled mess after it hit a guardrail, then a tree, along Nicoll Highway at about 7am on Saturday.

The driver, however, walked away from the crash almost unharmed.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said an ambulance arrived at the scene at 7.18am to find the man standing outside his car. An SCDF spokesman said he had cuts on his arms and forehead.

When The Sunday Times visited the driver, Mr Lim Chai Meng, 36, at the Singapore General Hospital on Saturday, he did not seem seriously hurt. He was in a room watching TV. He said he was 'fine and resting' and declined to say more.

A spokesman for Komoco Holdings, whose subsidiary Ital Auto is the distributor for Ferrari, declined to comment on the accident or the Ferrari's safety features.

That's a bad one... especially considering none of the wreckage is a result of the fire service cutting anyone out of the car...

Sad to see such a site. Singapore is such a small country for such a fast car. Jimmy
