Mechanic totals $3.4M Ferrari on test drive

    A mechanic totaled a $3.4 million Ferrari when he smashed into a tree stump on a test drive.

    The bright red Enzo sports car, one of only 400 made, had two wheels ripped off and may be irreparable.

    Local reports suggest a dealership mechanic was behind the wheel. He escaped unhurt but was taken to the hospital for a check-up.

    A witness to Tuesday’s smash in Baarn, Netherlands, said: “I think he wanted to turn back to the dealership.”

    They added: “The local Ferrari dealer is about one and a quarter miles away from the scene. It’s a customer-owned car.

    “The weather conditions were damp and chilly, maybe 3 degrees in temperature.

    “It hit a tree stump at the side of the road. It hit it on the passenger side and the stump was damaged.

    Just 400 of the mid-engine dream cars left the Ferrari production line between 2002 and 2004.

    Despite costing $609,921 at launch, Enzos have massively increased in value.

    A 2003 Ferrari Enzo was sold in August 2021 by RM Sotheby’s for $3,360,000.

    The mechanic was taking it for a test drive when they hit a stump, totaling the multi-million dollar vehicle.
