Going s-nowhere fast, £300,000 Ferrari coated in snow!
The Ferrari 599 GTO is one of the world’s quickest cars but this model was going nowhere fast after being coated in more than a foot of snow.
Parked up on an industrial site, the £300,000 supercar was left out overnight shortly before Scotland experienced an evening of heavy snowfall. And by the morning the Ferrari, one of only a handful in the UK, was coated in over 12-inches of the white stuff. Most supercar owners dress their pride and joy in specially made car covers and then park them in a heated garage, but the 599′s owner left it exposed to Mother Nature and her wicked ways.
Just two weeks prior to the snow-covered shot, the Ferrari was photographed in the same position – albeit less ‘snowy’. The snaps were taken in southern Scotland by 21-year-old Peter Watt and are among a collection of supercars he’s caught in the snow. Peter said: “I was surprised to see the 599 GTO out in the snow as most GTOs will probably go straight into a garage and perhaps only move when it comes time to sell.
Peter also photographed an £80,000 Audi, £110,000 Maserati Gran Turismo and £140,000 Bentley Continental amongst some other supercars – all looking in need of a garage.

The 2nd picture is of the GTO parked in the same position two weeks before the snowfall. The 3rd picture shows it wasn't just the GTO left in the snow, but a 458 as well.
