Black Ferrari Crash

Somewhere between Luzern and Zürich a black Ferrari 599 crash into a truck. The 44-year old driver lost control and slipped. The estimated damage is € 190.000, so the car can be regarded as total loss.

Styled by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari’s Frank Stephenson, the 599 GTB debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2006. It is named for its total engine displacement (5999 cc), Gran Turismo Berlinetta nature, and the Fiorano Circuit test track used by Ferrari.
The engine has a maximum power of 456kW at 7600rpm and a maximum torque of 608Nm at 5600rpm. The Fiorano can achieve speeds in excess of 205 miles per hour, accelerating from 0 to 62mph in under four seconds.
