Usman Ali, 25, who works as a tyre fitter for his father’s garage, is understood to have put down a £5,000 deposit to use the Ferrari 458 Spider for his wedding weekend. But on Sunday, the day after the wedding, his foot apparently tripped on the car mat and he pressed the accelerator rather than the brake as he arrived at his friend’s house ahead of further celebrations of his nuptials with wife Sakina Parveen (pictured together on their wedding day, inset).
The luxury car – which can go from 0 to 60mph in just three seconds – shot forward and smashed into the front of a terraced house (main). According to friends, the crash could cost Mr Ali around £25,000 – with £5,000 lost on the deposit and a £20,000 excess. Neighbours on the street in Burnley, Lancashire, watched as Mr Ali somehow emerged unscathed out of the wrecked Italian supercar, which had been worth nearly five times more than their own houses.
