Neighbors at a scenic beach are stumped after a ‘filthy rich’ Ferrari owner parked his £250,000 motor in a police officer’s car park.
The offender drove his 812 Superfast into the private police car park on Wharf Road in St Ives, Cornwall last week.
A local snapped the supercar occupying the space marked with yellow lines and with the word “POLICE” painted on it.
The photo was then posted online, with one viewer criticizing the perpetrator for his “legitimate” behavior.
Another user condemned what he saw as “a prime example of the filthy rich who think they are above the law.”
While the bay is of course not to be used by locals, the space serves as a convenient access point to the beautiful shoreline.
Retailing at a staggering £220,000 to £300,000, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is the manufacturer’s most powerful road car ever created.
The sleek sports car sprints to 200 km/h in just 7.9 seconds – around the same time as a MINI Cooper reaches 100 km/h.
Devon and Cornwall Police have been spotted driving a Lotus Evora GT410 Sport on occasion, however this vehicle is unlikely to be used for police purposes across the region.
It comes after housemates attacked underage hunks for burying their 4×4 motors in the sandy Cornish shore.
Boys who left private school two weeks before the states were reportedly known to have shagged in the sand, set fires, used drugs and hurled champagne bottles against cliffs.
Elsewhere, St Ives locals have criticized tourists for flocking to the idyllic coastline during the mild summer months.
Angry local residents pointed to noise pollution, traffic congestion and widespread littering by sun-seekers pouring in from other UK cities.
