A mechanic totaled a $3.4 million Ferrari when he smashed into a tree stump on a test drive.
The bright red Enzo sports car, one of only 400 made, had two wheels ripped off and may be irreparable.
Local reports suggest a dealership mechanic was behind the wheel. He escaped unhurt but was taken to the hospital for a check-up.
A witness to Tuesday’s smash in Baarn, Netherlands, said: “I think he wanted to turn back to the dealership.”
They added: “The local Ferrari dealer is about one and a quarter miles away from the scene. It’s a customer-owned car.
“The weather conditions were damp and chilly, maybe 3 degrees in temperature.
“It hit a tree stump at the side of the road. It hit it on the passenger side and the stump was damaged.
Just 400 of the mid-engine dream cars left the Ferrari production line between 2002 and 2004.
Despite costing $609,921 at launch, Enzos have massively increased in value.
A 2003 Ferrari Enzo was sold in August 2021 by RM Sotheby’s for $3,360,000.
