The crash happened in Guangzhou in Guangdong Province in China and it looks highly unlikely the supercar will ever cruise the streets again.

There are just 559 examples of the Ferrari 575M Superamerica in existance and this total is rapidly diminishing. One such example has met its doom over the past few days and a quick witted iPhone user was on hand to grab a few photos and post them on microblogging website weibo.

The crash happened in Guangzhou in Guangdong Province in China and it looks highly unlikely the supercar will ever cruise the streets again.

A huge impact on the front right has created a hole that goes deep into the engine bay surely leaving the powertrain beyond repair. Meanwhile, the rear left wheel has gone AWOL and has left a massive amount of damage in its surrounding area.

The evidence suggests some injuries were likely incurred during the crash, but details evade us at the moment.

The Ferrari 575M Superamerica in question was originally launched in 2005 and came with a 5.7-liter V12 engine producing 533hp (397kW). It is essentially an open top version of the 575M Maranello that boasts an electrochromic glass panel roof.
