Ferrari 458 seeks tough truck for rough play – Click above to watch video after the jump

The new Ferrari F150 is a single-seat Formula One racecar that will be the object of affection for millions of Tifosi around the globe. One Florida fan of the Italian automaker recently purchased a brand-new 2011 458 Italia. He wasn't planning on turning his into an F150, but he did turn into an F-150... a Ford F-150.

The accident happened in Brandon, Florida, when the Ferrari driver allegedly decided that the yellow paint on the ground didn't apply to him (investigation still pending...). When he went to pass another car, he found a Ford pickup heading straight for his front bumper. The F-150 didn't stop at the low-lying nose and ended up with its left-front tire on the hood of the 458. Fortunately, it appears that no serious injuries resulted.

If you want to see the aftermath of a failed attempt at Ferrari F150 construction, all you have to do is click past the jump. Thanks for the tip, Michael!

      If you listen to the video, he calls the owner of the Ferrari to tell him someone ran over his car, he was only the driver, he plays it off like it was his car.....bet the owner was pissed at him.

      I think they better make the brake calipers a little bigger on the 2012 model. Obviously a design flaw. Ask the joker in the yellow t-shirt. He is going to have some 'splainin to do when the "Collector Car Insurance Company" sees he has driven that car 4500 miles in two weeks!

      Defensive driving would have avoided this. Just because someone is suppose to stop, or use a signal or practice some other "rule of the road", doesn't mean they will. Never assume the other guy knows...or cares what he's doing.

      The 458 sure has bad luck with 4 letter 'words' that start w/'F'

        The car is still alive stupid people!!!

        He's lucky the engine in the Ferrari is built in the back of the sporty red machine, that will be fix fast with auto-collision insurance. Plus he's whealty, so FORD = Fix-Or-Repaired-Daily.

        btw
        I drive a Volvo, and my Germanic truck will crush that Ford F-150 ha ha ha.

      "Built Ford Tough and to prove it we used our F-150 to climb over a fancy boy Italian speed bump."

      New slogan "Buy a Ford or the Ferrari gets it"

      I mean, on the bright side, that's probably fixable, right? New fender/hood and maybe a radiator at the VERY least?
        • 3 Years Ago
        i'm guessing it will be $50Gs at least. I hope the Geico lizard is in a good mood today. Crisps, lol?
        • 3 Years Ago
        aww, c'mon...that'll buff RIGHT out!
        • 3 Years Ago
        I heard that Ford was adding some of the half-charred 458's to their proving grounds for suspension testing, actually.
        • 3 Years Ago
        So roughly $50,000 in repairs to get it back to "factory" lol.

        And for the F-150 guy, put it in reverse and back his truck off the Ferrari; go check wheel alignment.
        • 3 Years Ago
        give him a hammer and it will buff out just fine. if not, hand it over to Clarkson, he'll buff it out.
      • 3 Years Ago
      well, this has to be the FAIL of the day
      • 3 Years Ago
      He'll probably be sent to bed without his dessert and there will be a new one in the garage in a couple of days.

      Well Ferris, you be in a heap o' trouble. What's up with the t-shirt? This guy gives exotic sports car owners a bad name. I'm sure the F-150 driver was just going too fast!
