Crashed Ferrari Dino is work of art, worth US$250,000

Normally when a Ferrari or any Italian sports car of high caliber is involved in a crash, we all mourn over the death of the beautiful creation. Not so with this Ferrari Dino, which, after being involved in a serious accident, has been put on display as a work of art.

Ferrari Dino crashed FIAC art

French artist Bertrand Lavier decided to display this terribly wrecked Ferrari Dino at the Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain (FIAC) festival at the Grand Palais in Paris, France.

The model has obviously been in some sort of big crash in the past, probably rolled at least once judging by the highly damaged A-pillars and crushed in roof.

Even though the Ferrari Dino is often regarded as the baby Ferrari, and therefor the cheapest model produced, a Ferrari is still a Ferrari; it’s an emotional sight seeing one all crushed up.

It’s so moving in fact, an enthusiast – art and/or Ferrari – decided to purchase this sculpture for a eye-opening US$250,000. The price is quite a lot more than your average good condition and fully functioning Dino. Only in art.
