A red Ferrari 430 Scuderia had a serious crash on a freeway near the city of Perth in Australia

A red Ferrari 430 Scuderia had a serious crash on a freeway near the city of Perth in Australia.

The accident took place yesterday just before 1 am local time on the Mitchell Freeway at Padbury. There is no official information about what caused the heavy crash, but Herald Sun reports the driver lost control and slid onto the verge on the side of the road, ending close to a large tree.

The report also says the man behind the wheel wasn’t injured. Surprisingly, the local police told HS they are not investigating the case and can’t say whether the Ferrari had been speeding or not.

The 430 Scuderia, a track-focused variant of the regular F430, went on sale in Australia from July 2008 at $573,000 (420,000 EUR) and was available until early 2010. The crashed red Italian supercar, said to be a 2008 or 2009 model, suffered major damage to the front end with further damage caused to the underside.
