Anyone who has ever driven on a beach knows it is tricky at best, which is just what the driver of this £250,000+ Ferrari supercar discovered at a Cornish beach recently.

The garishly coloured green Ferrari 458 became stuck in the wet sand at Watergate Bay, and was snapped and shared online by surf company Ann's Cottage, who said: "A Ferrari stuck in sand at Watergate Bay yesterday whilst recording a TV ad! yikes."

On the company's blog they add: "The Ferrari 458 Spyder can reach 60 mph in just 3 seconds, however once loaded onto the beach it was going nowhere fast.

"A member of our web team watched in horror as the £240,000 super-car was unloaded from a trailer, only for it to immediately get bogged down in the wet sand and slowly begin to sink.

"After a short spell of panic and a look of fear on certain people’s faces, a Land Rover came to the rescue and pulled it to safety.
" We’re pretty sure it’s not what the guys had planned for the photo-shoot but it certainly gave the bystanders a good show."

Oh dear, looks like someone was a bit touchy about your comments Gill and meerkats, let me see if I can get more thumbs down than you two lol

I think it looks like a can of cheap mushy peas that has been opened by a tin opener. I don't think they had any sense at all to drive something that heavy that isn't a four wheel drive, on sand as evidentially as wet as it shows in the pic lol
