Ferrari Gives Discount to Lawyer Who Drowned His California

Toronto lawyer Howard Levitt found himself in a precarious situation last July while trying to get to the airport during a rain storm. Sitting behind the wheel of his 2010 Ferrari California valued at $200,000, Levitt noticed that the tunnel he was passing through was beginning to fill with water. Determined to make his court appearance the next day, Howard decided to abandon his Ferrari in the tunnel and take a cab to the airport, according to the National Post.

After receiving reimbursement from his insurance company for the value of his car (goes without saying that the car was subsequently totalled), Howard began his trek towards replacing his California with a 2014 version in an identical color scheme. Upon arriving at the Ferrari dealership, Howard was surprised to discover that Ferrari had not only heard of his unfortunate mishap, but the company was prepared to offer a very generous “deal” on a 2014 California, with after-market options that placed the retail value of the car well over $300,000. Even though the full details of the deal were not disclosed to the public, Howard was reportedly very satisfied with the offer.

It’s hard to imagine any Ferrari owner abandoning a prancing horse in a flooded tunnel, but Levitt’s dedication to his job and his client was enough motivation for him to do so; and it clearly caught the attention of Ferrari’s Public Relations department. With that said, Howard is expected to receive shipment of his new Ferrari in late November… Just in time for a Toronto snow storm!
