The owner of a newly purchased Ferrari 812 GTS didn’t have the chance to enjoy his luxurious vehicle for too long. Because of a beginner’s mistake, his car ended up in the waters near the town of Sirmione. Luckily for him, a tow truck managed to pull it out of the lake soon enough
Just a few weeks after getting a new owner, a luxurious Ferrari 812 GTS received an unexpected baptism.
After parking the car near Sirmione – a picturesque Italian town on the coast of Lake Garda – the car’s owner most likely forgot to apply the handbrake.
In addition, he also left his car on neutral while being on a slight incline. Therefore, as gravity proved its existence once again, the car slowly slipped into the popular lake.
Luckily for the owner, the damage won’t be that high as he called the police right away.
They came with a tow truck which managed to get the Ferrari out of the popular lake in no time.
Ferrari 812 vGTS can move on neutral only if the Carwash service is activated
Soon after publishing the news by Formula Passion, many experts on cars expressed their doubts about the alleged cause of the accident.
Apparently, it’s not easy to make a Ferrari 812 GTS move while parked on neutral. Once the driver takes his leg out of the brake pedal, the car gets automatically into the Park Lock mode, The Drive explains.
Ironically though, the Park Lock can be temporarily deactivated when the engine is switched off by performing the Carwash service. In this case, the vehicle is kept stationary only if the parking brake is applied.
