As a follow-up to Ferrari-gate http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/1123970/, we now have the case of a man in the MCI area who waited two years to take delivery of an ultra-high-performance Ford GT, drove it a grand total of nine miles, and crashed it into a pole:

At least he didn't claim that some mysterious German had been driving and ran away after the crash.
On the bright side, the Ford GT probably can be repaired, needless to say at a price.

Always comical when people spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on expensive performance cars only to total it after such a short

www.wreckedexotics.com has some great pictures of expensive cars given the odd bump or two..

I also read a really interesting article in a car magazine recently about exotic cars that are declared as written off but then hit the salvage market. Ferrari 355s for £16,000, Bentleys with boots that have been set on fire! All sorts Big grin www.universal-salvage.com has a category for Prestige cars.

Money doesn't equal brains. Seeing these circumstances, all owners of exotic/ultra high preformance cars should be required to have a special drivers licenses requireing competition level training before one can drive them. Even if I were rich, I don't think I would want an expensive car for daily use.
