A Ferrari driver wrote off his £200,000 supercar – after owning it for just an hour.

The high-performance Ferrari 430 Scuderia was reduced to a twisted wreck after the horror crash on the M1 motorway.

Police said the driver was able to walk away with just cuts and bruises after the car “went airborne and burst into flames” in South Yorkshire on Thursday.

The car went 50 metres down a bank and ended up in a field, where it caught fire and had to be extinguished by firefighters.

In a statement on Facebook police added: “Officers asked the driver what sort of car he ‘had’ to which he replied ‘It was a Ferrari’.

“Detecting a sense of damaged pride he then said ‘I’ve only just got it, picked it up an hour ago’.”

They added: “Over the past couple of weeks there has been a number of collisions where driving styles have not reflected the road and weather conditions. Please take more care!
