This is the moment a driver writes off a priceless Ferrari just minutes after picking it up from a rental dealership.
The clip, filmed in the city of Wenling, China, shows the female driver spin out in the £500,000 Ferrari 458 after losing traction in slippery conditions.
Shocking footage shows the woman slamming into the side of a BMW and causing a pileup after careering through the central reservation of a busy city center highway.
Moments before the crash a clip, believed to have been filmed by the woman herself from the drivers seat, allegedly shows her bragging about the rental car.
In the short clip thought to have been filmed by the woman while she was waiting at the lights, she points the camera at the Ferrari’s dashboard and says: ‘First time driving a Ferrari. This truly is the most amazing feeling.’
Traffic cameras on the busy city-centre road shows the woman suddenly swerving out of control and slamming head-on into a metal traffic barrier and a BMW X3, which also collides with the unsuspecting driver of a black Nissan saloon car.
In spite of what appeared to be a low-speed crash, footage taken by witnesses in the aftermath of the accident showed the front end of the Ferrari 458 completely destroyed and its airbags deployed.
