Chris Evans' 599GTO involved in bumper basher...

He's a proud collector of Ferraris, and has a fleet of the luxury cars to choose from when he heads out for the day.

But Chris Evans may have been left regretting his decision to take his 300,000 Ferrari 599 GTO for a spin, after a fender bender which left the vehicle scratched and damaged.

However, rather than a unaware member of the public causing the damage, the guilty party was actually fellow radio DJ Vanessa Feltz, who accidentally backed her white Mini into the Ferrari twice as she pulled out of a tight spot in the car park after finishing her Radio 2 show.

Evans, 44, tried to hide his shock as he clapped eyes on the silver super-car, which had huge scratchmarks on the front bumper. Apparently, Feltz remained completely unaware about what she had done, and headed home after the minor crash.

Looks like she may have missed the hood so just throw a new front clip on and the GTO will be like new. Thank goodness she was driving a mini. Check this link for a run in with a Ford F-150 and a two week old 458:

Wow! Looks like Chris needs to stop parking his GTO on the slide of the road outside the BBC, the good old road maintenance crew painted a yellow "no parking line" over his bonnet! Sad

must have been a VERY tight space to have a mini penned in...

either Chris left too little room
or
Vanessa is just that poor a driver: Since she didn't even consider she hit anything, which I find difficult to believe, so, she certainly isn't a very good driver.

LOL, could you imagine!

I understand why he did the yellow line and white circles, being the livery of the 250 GTO and that looks great, but personally I wouldn't have it on the 599 GTO.

I like it. But not sure if the novelty would wear off. Is it a factory paint option or a sticker?
