A Ferrari driver fled his £500,000 supercar after crashing head-on into a row of parked cars.
What was left of the red SF90 – dubbed the ‘quickest car of the decade’ – was found on Hagley Road in Birmingham yesterday evening.
Shocking photos from the scene show the mangled wreck, with the bonnet completely ripped off.
The airbags deployed and no one was found injured at the scene.
But firefighters confirmed the driver was not there when crews arrived before 8pm.
It’s not known how fast the car was travelling when it crashed, but the SF90 can go from 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds and top out at 211mph.
The fire service posted pictures of the crumpled mess on Twitter and were flooded with replies.

‘Obviously too powerful for somebody to handle,’ one wrote.
Another added: ‘That’s gonna cost some serious money to put right. I’d be devastated, that car cost more than my house.’
West Midlands Police confirmed they were investgating the abandoned Ferrari and had not found the driver.
‘We made a search of the area and spoke to a number of witnesses but were unable to locate the driver,’ a spokesperson said.
‘The car has been seized and our work to identify and trace the driver continues.’
