This is what happens when you drive a $300,000 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti like a madman.

According to reports, a male driver in South Africa took a tight turn on slick roads and lost control. After crashing into a pole, his supercar erupted in a ball of fire. Witnesses say the conflagration started in the trunk but quickly spread to the passenger compartment.

The driver is recovering from minor injuries at a local hospital. Naturally, the car was a total loss.
