No matter your automotive affiliation, you're likely cringing at the image above. There's something that puts the Ferrari F40 well above the brand loyalty fray.

One owner in Vancouver recently had an incident that saw his Italian machine wind up in pieces. It's unclear exactly what happened, but a rear-end collision of some variety resulted in substantial damage to the vehicle's back half. With coolant pooling onto the pavement and pieces of bodywork strewn about the street, the video is a wince-fest from beginning to end.

From the looks of things, the wet pavement may not have done the car nor the driver any favors, but if you live in Vancouver and own an F40, odds are you know how to handle the supercar in the wet. Check it out in the clip below.

      I really can't cut any driver slack for totaling an F40, you ruined a rare piece of automotive art, shame on you for being a hack.

      What's the consensus on cost to repair? 1/4 of a mil or more?

      I think you're all missing some of the details. There is dirt and grass on the road. Follow that back to the side of the road. It appears he may have lost control, swinging onto the grass, and may have even hit the telephone pole. There is a large amount of debris lying next to it. And i agree, the ground appears dry under the car, so i don't think the rain caused the accident. It appears he was the only car involved.

      Looks like it came to a stop before it started raining.

        Can't believe this comment got +4 how often you see a 17 years old Chinese boy drive a sportscar with a clutch to step on like a rock??? Well I guess lots of you +5 don't know how heavy the F40 clutch is.... if you drove a rear wheel sportscar with lots of power and no traction control, tires been sitting for years (my guess) and a little deep on gas, with racing clutch in F40 and maybe worry about the engine stall.. that's what will happen!!

        I'm pretty sure he said "that's pre-airbag" since the car never came equipped with them. http://www.thecartorialist.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/ferrari_f40_interior.jpg

      Cosmic retribution for the human slavery and cancerous pollution of Chinese manufacturing that no doubt paid for this vehicle....

        Boy, that's a heck of an assumption to be making. Talk about jumping to conclusions. You sound like a very bitter and jealous person.

        WoW, to my understanding any manual transmission vehicle will not draw attention to my kind of drivers specially stepping on a rock like clutch so don't target on Chinese manufacturing pay for this vehicle go home look around just your living room than look at the mirror who pay for Chinese manufactory well I am one of them!
