Ferrari Insurance does not cover Trees


Ferrari 360A car dealer will undoubtedly be feeling sorry for himself now. He was sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid community service after attempting to defraud his insurance company. Having loaned his Ferrari Spider 360 to a charity event, it was quickly written off by an uninsured driver whom found that the trees are fairly immovable unlike cars – the vehicle was written off.

Charging £15 a time to raise money for the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance combined with the fact he is a car dealer, one would think he would have had the sense to take out a special insurance package. I am sure he would have been liable to be covered by public liability insurance at least for the event anyway.

Presumably however he did not, and perhaps his business insurance also was not covering the incident so instead he attempted to commit fraud, and claim that it was himself that drove the vehicle into a tree. Stupidity seems to no know limits. In the future perhaps he’ll think twice about using personal insurance to cover a public and commercial event.
