Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Hits A Wall While Racing Illegally In Dubai

Watching a car crash into a highway wall is never pretty, but most of the time you just feel bad for the driver. In this case however, we feel bad for the car too. Damn.

Now why would you do that? Why would you, first of all, drag race somebody on a busy highway? At least if you do that, make sure you can drive. Make sure that you can handle a 741 HP Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, especially under heavy braking.

This car accelerates with such force, it’s easy to misjudge how fast you’ll come up to the cars in front of you, and it goes double the other way around.

If you pay close attention, the car that the F12 driver had to avoid, had just pulled out in front of him from the first lane.

Of course, that was just the first part. The crash was actually caused by the driver correcting way too much.

In case you’re wondering why he didn’t swerve to the left, it’s because at those speeds you can never assume what the other guy is doing. For all he knew, the AMS Alpha GT-R could have been right beside him or way too close for comfort.

We won’t get on the poor guy (figuratively poor) for braking the way he did (he had to avoid the car in front – that was not his fault) or for swerving to the right, but once you do that, you’ve got to be able to keep the car in check. Be quick on the steering and don’t yank it too hard.

Generally speaking, you can avoid that type of crash in pretty much any type of car.
