Woman Parks Her Car on Top of Ferrari 458

“The dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.”

Ouch: an old Mercedes-Benz 380SL is driven up and over the hood of a Ferrari 458.

Car shows can be great fun for both those who come to show off their hot wheels, as well as those who come to check them out.

But at least two facts left the weekly gathering in Great Falls, Virginia known as Katie’s Cars & Coffee this past weekend feeling a bit less pleased than normal. One is the owner of a new Ferrari 458, the other was driving an older Mercedes-Benz 380SL.

The unidentified woman drive apparently had some serious challenges with parallel parking, demonstrated by backing her Mercedes roadster right up on top of the hood of the red Ferrari. Worse, she then attempted to pull off the sports car, doing even more damage.

A crowd quickly gathered around the scene, fans who had come to check out cars like the Ferrari 458 stunned by what they saw. Smartphones videos showed their reaction – one calling it, “a big, big problem.”

That’s when the sports car’s owner finally showed up. “Are you serious?” he exclaimed. “That’s like the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.”

The driver of the Mercedes had tried to dislodge her 380SL which didn’t just bump the Ferrari but somehow climbed up onto its hood. She only managed to pull forward slightly, causing even more damage.

As she got out, she was in visible agony. “Oh, my god,” she told the Ferrari owner, “I’m shaking.”

It didn’t help when a police officer finally arrived to inspect the scene – though he wound up leaving without issuing a citation.

But the two drivers ultimately did wind up exchanging information and, barring some bizarre turn of events, she is likely going to be on the hook for a significant chunk of change. The Ferrari 458 starts at around $300,000, and while it was far from totaled, the repairs won’t be cheap. There’ll be sheet metal work and the entire vehicle will likely need to be repainted.

The Ferrari's owner inspects the damage.

One of the hot topics on social media focused on just how much the value of the vehicle could be impacted. The damage, even after being repaired, could extend to the eventual resale value of the Ferrari.

At least the owner doesn’t have to blame himself for the mess – except, perhaps, for making the mistake of parking the 458 on the street,

But another Ferrari owner got into a bit more trouble in Michigan a few weeks earlier after drunkenly driving his own 2002 model sports car through a stop sign in Spring Lake Township, somehow avoiding oncoming traffic but then crashing into a power pole.

He and his passenger got out and walked away, witnesses pointing police to where the pair were nabbed, minutes later, on foot.

    It could have been worse. It could have been my car.

    That level of incompetence will result in injury or death. She needs extensive training or removal from the driving pool before something worse happens.

    Does she buy her coffee at McDonalds??
