Florida Man Destroys His $700,000 Ford GT Before Even Leaving the Neighborhood

Imagine taking your supercar out for a drive—and almost immediately crashing it. That’s what happened on Friday last week to a Florida man who barely made it out of his housing development before destroying his 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition sports car on a palm tree. The reason for the crash, according to the driver? a lack of familiarity with a manual transmission.

The owner was “unfamiliar with how to drive stick shift”

According to reporting by Road&Track, the driver—later identified as 50-year-old Robert J. Guarini—claimed to have lost control of the vehicle while downshifting. The man told police he was “unfamiliar” with driving stick, but there’s a lot to this story that seems suspect.
