    Nick you are something... Sorry for the F12... It is a shame someone would leave the scene. No security camera around?

     

    Might have traffic cameras looking the right direction, but that's up to the Police to check footage.

     

    Or insurance...

    Glad your wife's not hurt! Did she hopefully see the car/get any info?

    You need to put lifts in your garage! Put another few cars in there.

    When my sister learnt of the accident, she commented "knowing you, you will go out and buy another car".

    She is so right. Today I just pulled the trigger on this:

    Maybe picking it up Monday or something. 

    Yes it's not black, but I don't see myself keeping it for long anyway. 

    Nice choice of specsSmiley

    Now you may be able to get in on the list of special editions and get insider info, provided you keep the car for more than six months.  Have you joined any lambo forums?  Cant wait for the inevitable review.

    Judging by look of that damage, the cops should be on the lookout for a Javelin. Smiley

    No, not taking delivery till possibly Monday.

    It is a in stock car and someone else had a look at it yesterday, guess it will be too late for him if he wants it.

    That Huracan looks phenomenal, many congrats Nick. 

    Sorry for the F12, most important your wife is okay, but a shame what happened to the car nevertheless. 

    I would be very interested what you think about the Huracan once you got it, especially compared to its rivals from Maranello like 458, Speciale, 488. wink

    Sorry to hear about the F12, looks like a pretty serious hit. Glad that the car kept your wife save.

    Congrats to the new addition, I am sure this is a fund car to drive slow and fast


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Sorry the hear about the F12 .

    A very strange hit !! How did a car makes these holes ? Did it have spikes ?  And I am amazed someone would drive away when hitting another car that hard ( if your wife was inside )  !!!!

    As to the Huracan, I love it !!!!!! Looking forward to the comparison with the Speciale  and RS

    Congrats, the Huracan Spyder has these unabashed top-dog super car looks, even the 918 looks a little tame by comparison...IMHO the best looking Lambo out there at the moment.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    glad no one got hurt....and congrats on the lambo.

    how on earth did the metal get ripped open like that ? any clue ?

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Nick, are you replacing the F12 with the Huracan, or are you keeping both?

    Rear tow hook?
    --

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Look for an SUV/truck. The rear tow hook could do that damage. He probably reversed into your car and drove away.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Beautiful car, congratulations!


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    A 5 ton moving box truck was driving next to her and turned into her for no reason, I wasn't there to see it first hand but my guess is the steel bumper beam is responsible for ripping the hole there and puncture the rear tire too.

    They weren't going very fast, just city block traffic speed, but if it were on a highway, then I don't want to think of the aftermath.

    The F12 will stay, but since it will be in the repair shop for a long time (ordering parts, body panels from a Italian company takes forever), it might as well give up its spot in the garage for the time being.

    On the surface, a new door, new mirror, new wheel, new tire and some painting. Not sure how the repair will go for the interior door panel, maybe it can be swap over or maybe Ferrari will need to make a new panel, if that's the case then the car could be out of commission for months.

    Not sure. The window was down, but cannot see if those pesky plastic clips on the panel broke or not, if the clips are broken then the whole piece cannot be used.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Oh, ok, I thought you meant the truck penetrated all the way into the cabin. Obviously that's a pain if you have to replace the interior panel as well (maybe they should just make a new door?) but not the personal hazard of something piercing all the way through the door.

    Bummer on the F12. I'll give you $100K less under market value for it, you know, accident and all...

    That's how this works, right? A tiny accident means people expect a zillion dollars off the price, right?


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Nick, look at positively. The collision gave you the impetus to buy a gorgeous car. kiss

    FWIW, one of the first things I learned about driving an exotic like a Ferrari is other drivers tend to look at your car and not the road thereby created a dangerous situation. AND as I posted regarding my Targa, some are just so envious they do stupid things also creating unsafe conditions.

    Finally point, other drivers think that doing damage to an exotic will be costly and think they may not have enough insurance to cover the damage. Thus the hit and run.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Glad to hear your wife is fine, sad to hear about the F12, congrats on the fantastic looking Huracan !! 

    And when you get tired of it just send it my way, i'll keep it warm and clean and well fed. Just like a puppy right ?
