An unfortunate Hungarian driver wrecked his Ferrari 812 Superfast on the M3 motorway in drizzling rain two days ago, according to photos posted on the Balesetinfo Facebook group.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast costs €300,000 in its most basic configuration but the price can go as high as €500,000. Given the average wage in Hungary, the basic price is the equivalent of 34 years of wages.
The 812 Superfast has a twelve-cylinder, 6.5 liters engine putting out 789 hp (588 kW), making it the Italian manufacturer’s most powerful naturally aspirated (i.e. not turbocharged) engine, giving the car a top speed of 340 kilometers an hour (211 mph) with a zero to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) acceleration time of 2.9 seconds.
Though it is not a limited edition but a regular production model — if there even is such a thing for Ferrari — there is a long waiting list for it, and as usual with most Ferrari models, the manufacturer preselects its buyers, so you can’t just walk into a dealership and buy one.
Last year, Ferrari sold a record 10,131 cars, exceeding the 10,000 mark for the first time in its 80-year history.
