Default ....And the 1st wrecked LaFerrari goes too....

BooM









So, you think your Monday is terrible? Think again, or, better yet, head over to Monaco, where the LaFerrari has had its first customer crash, an unfortunate encounter with a Volkswagen Golf 6.

The first world crash took place in Monte Carlo, the European capital of supercars. As an educated guess, it looks like the Golf driver is the one to blame, which means that a host of other people, the team working for the company insuring him, also have what is probably their worst start of the week ever.

For those asking why the "customer" particle is in the title, we have to remind you the LaFerrari already had its first accident while it was in the testing phase. According to witnesses, the hybird hypercar, which was still wearing camouflage at the time, was rear-ended by a truck on an Italian highway, in the proximity of Mantova.

Oh, and there was also that time when Kimi Raikkonen played LaFerrari tête-à-queue on Fiorano, but, luckily, that can't be labeled as an accident.

Update: For those willing to know, this is reportedly the LaFerrari chassis number 199508, holding a the 6844 Monaco plate. Now that the info has made our lives complete, we can tell you the Ferrari arrived in Monaco on 14th December 2013. The owner will probably have to take it to Scuderia Monte Carlo, the local Prancing Horse dealer, where, given then EUR 1 million (US$ 1.4 million) price tag of the car, the repair will probably cost just as much as the Volkswagen it colided with.

As for all those voices worrying about the fact that this is one of the only 499 units ever made, they should relax, those wounds can be healed. We've added a third photo below, so you can get a better view on how the Golf took the impact. What? The pic is 95 percent LaFerrari and 5 percent Volkswagen? Well, gues you'll have to make due with seing the damage on the hypercar then.

Update 2: As it turns out, the crash took place in the proximity of the Monte Carlo Country Club. The LaFerrari was traveling westbound on Avenue Princesse Grace, while the Golf was coming the other way on the same street. The Volkswagen was turning left onto Boulevard du Larvotto. In theory, this means it shoudl've given way to the Ferrari. In practice, we can't be sure what happened - for instance, the speed of the LaFerrari remains unknown for the moment. Until we find any further info, you have the map of the carbon- and metal-crushing event below.

Update 3: Besides being accident partners, the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Volkswagen Golf have something else in common - the airbas were deployed in both vehicles. From what we can see in the adjacent images, the Prancing Horse saw its steering wheel bag infalte, while both the driver and the passenger front airbags in the Golf were summoned.

We're feeling all this has gotten a tad of a dark note, so we'd like to cheer you up a little bit - the clip below shows how this particular example of the LaFerrari likes to spend its time on the French Riviera.

How many Golfs could you buy for what it will cost to repair that, and why every Golf ever made?

I wish it were a P1 or 918 instead of a Golf.

What a terrible name for a car. Say that 10 times and see if your head doesn't hurt.
