Cops say the Ferrari driver left the road in wet conditions and slid 50 metres across a field before the vehicle burst into flames near Barnsley, South Yorks.
At the scene officers revealed the driver, who survived with cuts and bruises, said “it was a Ferrari” with “a hint of damaged pride” – before saying he “only had it an hour”.
Police offices lifted the lid on the reason why motorists were stuck on at Junction 37 of the M1 today after posting two pictures of the wreckage on Facebook.
South Yorkshire Police Operational Support posted: “Afternoon folks, were you stuck in traffic this afternoon on the M1 south around junction 37? If so, here’s why.
“Officers were deployed to a single vehicle collision with reports that the vehicle had left the carriageway and burst in to flames.
“Road conditions were wet at the time and as officers arrived on scene it became clear there was a vehicle well alight.”
