A man in Budapest bought a brand-new, $1.9 million Ferrari recently — and didn’t get to enjoy the beauty of the vehicle for too long. According to WTXF, a video was captured of the driver hitting a set of parked cars after he allegedly got “too excited” with the car’s acceleration.

Witnesses say that the driver put a little too much on the gas -- WTXF reports this particular Ferrari can go up to 62 miles per hour in under three seconds -- and ran into a pair of cars parked on the side of the road. The video shows the driver swerving into the cars with photos showing the damage done to the front of the Ferrari, including one of the front headlights completely being torn up.

No one was hurt in the crash, but the same can’t be said about the man’s pride — or bank account. He may need to re-take a driving course with one Washington teen, who crashed her student vehicle into the driving school building at the end of her examination.
