The Ferrari 458 lists for more than $290,000 and tops out at over 200 mph
One driver may be giving her insurance company an expensive bill after she accidentally backed into a nearly $300,000 Ferrari while attempting to parallel park outside a Virginia coffeehouse.
Video being shared online showed the aftermath of the Saturday accident in Great Falls, Virginia. It showed the rear of the woman's Mercedes convertible

And her plates are expired! She;’s screwed!
Someone who should not be behind the wheel.
Eleanor Holmes Norton trying to park again?
Why is that Ferrari on the street in the first place?
Trying to parallel park, and there isn’t even a car in front of hers? Looks like a prank TV show setting up the onlookers, or something.
Ya gotta admit...
For that woman to drive over the Ferrari as far as that...
That’s one aerodynamic Ferrari.
That was my first thought but then if you can't afford to lose such a car, you probably should be driving a less expensive one. It certainly can be repaired. At least it wasn't a classic one from the 50's or 60's, that would be heartbreaking.
Nobody should have to carry as much coverage as is required to replace that car. Drive an exotic auto like that and anything over say $120,000 should be on you.
A ‘woman’ driver...
Is the aerodynamic or autodynamic?
“McGoo! You’ve done it again.”
“That’ll buff right out.”
Valets are asked to park nice cars where they can be seen. It attracts rich clientele.
But in my experience (Ferrari Mechanic Apprentice for 1 year) these cars are utter garbage.
The MB is a better choice. The Ferrari isn’t even la bella machina
Back it into a Ferrari 612 and we’ll settle this with fisticuffs.
What a great selling point - lol
What’s the nicest MB?
I just lost a friend over the weekend. Back during the early spring a 74 year old woman ran her over in a parking lot. While she was under the car, the driver proceeded to drive away and dragged her about 5 feet before other pedestrians screamed at her to stop.
My friend had a heart attack the end of last week, lapsed into a coma and finally died after enduring months of agony, brain damage and attempted rehabilitation.
In the final analysis she is probably better off because she was really mangled.
The driver just kept exclaiming that she “didn’t see her”.
“Whats the nicest MB?”
One that doesn’t have to go in the garage every other week for warranty service.
My favorite in all regards is the C190 (Cosworth). It’s attainable, it’s the proper balance of fun and everything else that makes a Benz a Benz.
Most of them, while being good quality cars, are not fun. Not fun at all.
the C111 is my favorite, although it’s a concept car. But had the same production figures as the Gullwing. The Gullwing is pretty but I didn’t have fun in it. It’s like driving a Monet. You can’t have fun with it. Ever.
The 190SL was a REALLY pretty car and quite nice to drive, the 500K is also rewarding to be in.
But as far as ownership, each of those I mentioned $500k is the smallest price tag. So the 190 Cosworth.
