South Yorkshire Police posted photos on Twitter of the smoking and wrecked auto, saying it "went airborne (and) burst into flames" beside a highway in northern England.

I've never owned a new auto in my life, so I can't exactly relate to the feeling one gets behind the wheel of a brand new vehicle - especially if it's a Ferrari.

The British driver bought the supercar for £200,000 just 60 minutes before the accident.

Police said the Ferrari 430 Scuderia "went airborne" when it careened off a wet M1 highway in South Yorkshire Thursday, the BBC reported.

The auto went 50 metres down a bank and ended up in a field, where it turned into a fireball and had to be extinguished by firefighters.

Simone Biles acting loopy after getting her wisdom teeth pulled is priceless

"It was a Ferrari", the devastated driver said with "a hint of damaged pride", according to the police.

Officials say neither speeding nor driving style are to blame for the collision that only involved the Ferrari.

Fortunately, the driver survived the wreckage with only minor cuts and bruises. "Please take more care!"

"Following on from speaking to a number of witnesses, officers do not believe excess speed was a contributory factor in this collision", police wrote.

Ferrari introduced the Scuderia in 2007 that was tested by Formula 1 veteran Michael Schumacher.
