Two Street Racing Ferraris Spotted Going Airborne Into an Italian Villa’s Fence
No, this isn’t a scene out of the new Fast & Furious movie. This was a very real incident that occurred in a high-end neighborhood in Osimo, Italy where a pair of Ferrari drivers lost control of their vehicles and crashed into the same fence of a nearby villa.
According to reports, the drivers, aged 50 and 54, are from Belgium and were on vacation. One was driving a red Ferrari 296 GTB Assetto Fiorano and the other was driving a blue Ferrari F12berlinetta through the neighborhood, living out a real-life action sequence from their own James Bond movie. But no James Bond movie is without a few car accidents. That was the case when both drivers jumped the curb onto the hill and proceeded to fly through the air into the nearby home’s exterior fence and wall. Both drivers managed to walk away with some minor bruises. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the two Ferraris.
Firefighters arrived on the scene when the F12berlinetta ignited into flames shortly after impact. It is safe to assume that both supercars are at a total loss.
At the end of the day, reckless driving + two Ferraris = a ruined vacation and a big check to pay for the cars, fence, and hospital bills. Perhaps next time these two adrenaline junkies will be able to get their thrills in a more controlled environment like a race track instead of someone’s backyard. But at least it could make for an interesting story to tell at a party one day.
