A LaFerrari hypercar was involved in a crash with three cars in the Hungarian capital of Budapest this week.

The V12 hypercar shows significant damage to its front three quarters after coming into contact with three parked cars at the side of the road.

The driver of the 217mph hypercar lost control of the vehicle, with cold tyres and Autumnal conditions no doubt contributing factors to the crash.

Reports have come in that the car in question had only just come out of the repair shop, one which it will more than likely be taken straight back to.

Ferrari has only produced 499 examples of the LaFerrari, which can reach 62mph in less than three seconds thanks to 950bhp produced by a petrol engine in conjunction with a large electric motor.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that a LaFerrari has been involved in a crash. In 2013 one collided with a truck, while last year a driver crashed one into a Volkswagen Golf in Monaco. Only a few months ago, a teenage driver crashed another car into a barrier in Shanghai.

The LaFerrari is part of the so-called ‘hypercar trinity’, consisting of the Ferrari, the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder. Each one costs well over £700k, with the LaFerrari the most expensive at around £1.15million. With all of the cars already sold, they are commanding an eye-watering premium on the used market, with sales well over the already high list price.
