Ferrari owner gets that sinking feeling as car is rammed into harbour by runaway van

The owner of this luxury Ferrari was left feeling a little seasick after a runaway van rammed it into the sea.
The Ferrari 360 Spider - with the registration plate LJ-BUUM - was parked at the water's edge in Pag, Croatia, while its owner ate at a restaurant just yards away.
But he watched in horror as the brakes failed on a white Renault Master truck, which rolled into the back of his pride and joy and shoved it into the harbour.

The incident on the Croatian island, in the Adriatic Sea, was captured on camera by Tibor Svirovicza.
The 29-year-old, a composer from Zagreb, said: 'The Ferrari guy was a Slovenian tourist who had been harassing people in his car by making a lot of noise.
'It was like he was driving around purposely trying to wake up tourists with his fancy Ferrari.'
The owner, who appeared calm throughout the whole incident, owned a towing company in Slovenia and ordered one of his trucks to pull the Ferrari from the sea.

Amazingly, the Italian convertible - complete with red fluffy dice - suffered minimal front and rear bodywork damage despite falling nose-first into the sea.
Costing £120,000 new, it was built between 2000 and 2004 and fitted with a 3.6-litre V8 engine.
The Ferrari 360 Spider can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 183mph.
