Who Drives An Uninsured Ferrari F8 Tributo? This German Owner

Offbeat

We all know that flashy exotic cars are more likely to get pulled over by the police, although it’s typically for some sort of reckless activity. In the case of this Ferrari F8 Tributo driver in Germany, however, it was actually for a different reason altogether.

The F8 Tributo’s 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 pumps out a healthy 710 hp (720 PS / 530 kW) and 568 lb⋅ft (770 Nm) of torque, enabling a 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) time of 2.9 second and a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h). Given that, one would normally assume that this driver was doing something that involved stretching the car’s legs, but in fact, the reason for the traffic stop was that he actually hadn’t paid his insurance.

According to Mettmann police, the €300,000 Ferrari was first registered in January of 2022, and since then, the 32-year-old driver had supposedly not paid any of his monthly insurance payments. That led to them revoking his registration his and invalidating his license plates on the spot, forcing him to pay out of his own pocket for a tow truck to take his car home.

The police made a Facebook post of the incident, and unsurprisingly, the comments were not sympathetic towards the driver. Most were along the lines of: “He can afford a €300k Ferrari but can’t pay his insurance?” Yeah, that’s pretty weird, isn’t it?
