CAR magazine damages FF

CAR drove the new Ferrari FF this week - but there was a small commotion behind the scenes when we accidentally drove it into a kerb, stoving in both alloys on one side of the car. An expensive business on a Ferrari.

Check out our video of the moment when road tester Jethro Bovingdon smacked the new 230,000 FF into a kerb on a right-hand drive corner during the media launch in Italy.

''There was no kerb to begin with, and then one suddenly appeared halfway round this tight corner,'' admits Jethro sheepishly.

1 photo was managed to be squeezed out of a rightly reluctant Jethro. You can see the resultant damage below...

I'm impressed by the incredibly tough wheel for not splitting open. Two of my Challange wheels have also suffered good blows from water covered pot holes but incredibly it's an easy fix.

Salve,
