Car lovers, look away.

These photographs show the trail of destruction left by an out-of-control Ferrari, which ploughed into the front garden of a suburban house.

The driver of the Ferrari 458 Spider, worth around £200,000, said the supercar’s throttle got stuck, causing the vehicle to crash into a bush.

The car knocked down two bollards and was badly damaged during the accident in Bath, Somerset, at 7.40am on Saturday.

The homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “My husband and son were awake and heard the crash.
