Ferrari racing car is destroyed after overturning a parked Range Rover after a ‘high-speed accident’ on a residential street
- A Ferrari that can reach speeds of up to 200mph crashes into a 2.5-tonne 4×4 parked in a quiet residential street in Ipswich, Suffolk
- The Range Rover was hit by a racing car causing chaos as it ‘looked like Formula 1’ and was so loud it sounded like an ‘explosion’
- A man was arrested at the scene as residents were woken by the loud noise
- Thirty seconds after the accident, the Ferrari engine miraculously “restarted”
A Ferrari racing car is left almost unrecognizable after being wrecked on a residential street in Suffolk.
The Ferrari sped towards a parked Range Rover, causing it to flip sideways into the driveway of a nearby house in Ipswich on Saturday morning.
Suffolk Police were called to the scene on Lindbergh Road in the east of the town at 7.04am where they arrested one person involved.
Roadside resident Gary Smith, 51, told the sun he heard the Ferrari rocket on the road “flat out” before hearing a huge crash.

He said: “He was going as fast as this car would go, it was flat.
“I was just thinking what was going on, it felt like Formula 1.”
Gary, who has lived on the street since 1999, said the race car then slammed into a parked Range Rover, flipping it on its side.
He said the crash was so loud it sounded like an “explosion”.
The engineer said that about 30 seconds after the collision, the engine miraculously “restarted” and the driver tried to move it, but with little luck.
Gary said the man who owned the overturned Range Rover was “in disbelief” that a racing car could send a 2.5 tonne engine into the air.
Ferraris can reach speeds of up to 200 mph, making them very dangerous in the wrong hands.
No one was injured in the race car crash.
