Chinese influencer Hua Zi, rented a LaFerrari (worth SGD$5 million) to feature in a video for his social media, and crashed it within 3 seconds of driving.
Hua was seen in a video on Bilibili looking distressed, as he sat down on a kerb while someone filmed the damaged luxury supercar.
He had apparently accidentally stepped on the accelerator and crashed the $5 million supercar into a wooden platform.
The right rear wheel of the LaFerrari was seen in the video wedged into a corner of the platform, with a part of the supercar torn off.
Hua had rented the supercar from another internet celebrity, President Ji Meng, who features luxury supercars in his videos.
Hua had also hired a female talent for his video, who was inside the Ferrari when he crashed it – but she still got paid RMB5,000 for her time (SGD$971.10).
The damaged LaFerrari also racked up a bill of more than RMB30,000 (SGD$5,856.80) in repairs, which Hua had to pay.
Car repaired, then crashed again
After the car was repaired, it ended up being crashed AGAIN – this time it was Ji Meng behind the wheel, who tried to drive it onto a ledge and it got stuck.
He tried to move the vehicle forwards but it got damaged because the frame of the supercar was too low, and it then had to be brought in for repairs for the second time.
