A supercar Ferrari worth £250,000 was flipped onto its roof after a freak crash in the Peak District.

Pictures showed the car on its roof and badly damaged before being taken away on the back of a recovery truck.

It is believed the yellow car is a 488 Pista model, which normally changes hands for around £250,000.

It is not known if any other cars were involved or if there were any injuries.

Motorists had been warned to ensure they drove to the conditions with further bouts of heavy rain leaving standing water and roads wet in places.

The model of Ferrari is popular with a number of celebrities who have snapped up the cars.

Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay has a purple coloured version of the machine, while model Blac Chyna has one with white bodywork.

Chris Harris wrote in Top Gear magazine: ‘The Pista is a stunning achievement. In a marketplace that seems to be increasingly obsessed with track-focused machines, it exists as a very fast track toy that can be used perhaps even more effectively as a road car.

‘The lucky few allowed to buy one will not be disappointed.’
