Ferraris are built for speed, but not for floating.
A Florida driver found out that a Ferrari’s buoyancy was less than perfect Wednesday morning after he drove it off a dock into the Palm Beach Inlet, WPEC reported.
The incident occurred around 7 a.m., according to Palm Beach Fire-Rescue.
The car sank into about 30 feet of water, Fire-Rescue spokesman Sean Baker said. The man was plucked out of the water by a passing boat and returned to shore. He was not hurt, Baker said.
“He drove off the dock and went a pretty good distance,” Baker told the Palm Beach Post.
The car was towed to shore. Palm Beach Police are investigating the incident, WPEC reported.
