Bad day at the office? This guy just wrote off a Ferrari

THIS prancing horse ain't prancing no more.

Valet Roberto Cinti had some explaining to do this after pressing the wrong pedal while driving a client's $600,000 Ferrari 599 GTO.

One foot wrong is enough when you're in a car that can go from 0-95kmh in three seconds.

The valet smashed the once beautiful machine into a shopfront, destroying its entire front end.

He told police, "I got confused - instead of the brake, I pressed down on the accelerator", according to Italian news outlet Corriere della Sera.

Mr Cinti was taken to hospital for shock.

The Ferrari's owner - a few streets away at the time - probably had a bit of a shock as well.
