    It's no fun calling dad after crashing his car - but it's worse when you've just wrecked his rare Ferrari.

    A Melbourne man had to make that call on Saturday night after destroying the front-end of his father's 'Italian Stallion' in a very costly smash near Rod Laver Arena.

    The front of the red sports car, which police said had been speeding, finished wrapped around a pole in the spectacular accident, which took place on Batman Avenue.

    The car appears to be an F360 Challenge Stradale, which are estimated to be worth between $360,000 and $400,000.

    The cars were introduced from 2003 and it is understood there are about 12 in Australia

    Television news crews filmed the apparently unhurt driver of the Ferrari ringing home, while the vehicle's male passenger was taken to hospital with minor injuries, police said.

    The Nine Network last night reported the luxury car had suffered "extensive front-end damage".
  2. You can afford to buy one, you can afford to insure/replace one.

    Could probably afford a gun to shoot your son with too....
