A £2.5million Ferrari Enzo has been smashed into pieces after crashing into a tree stump in the Netherlands.
The crash took place in the town of Baarn, just southeast of Amsterdam, on Tuesday.
It is understood a local dealership mechanic was behind the wheel of the Enzo, of which only 400 were built worldwide, but escaped the incident unhurt after being taken to hospital for a check-up.
The vehicle suffered significant damage in the collision, in which its airbags were deployed, including two wheels having been ripped away along with several suspension pieces.
A witness to the crash said the vehicle’s passenger side ploughed into a tree stump on the side of the road.

They added: ‘The local Ferrari dealer is about two kilometres away from the scene. It’s a customer-owned car.
‘The Weather conditions were damp and chilly, maybe three degrees in temperature.
‘It hit a tree stump at the side of the road. It hit it on the passenger side and the stump was damaged.
‘Not sure what happened, but I think he wanted to turn right back to the dealership.’
The mid-engine supercars left the Ferrari production line between 2002 and 2004.
