NEW YORK — A groom in England and his new wife were lucky to walk away unscathed from a very serious car crash.

According to the Daily Mail, Usman Ali had rented a white Ferrari 458 Spider on his wedding day to ride off into wedded bliss in style.

The car, which sells for a whopping $345,000, has a top speed of 210 mpg and boasts a 0-to-60 acceleration in just three seconds.

Unfortunately for him, he apparently put his foot down a little too hard on the gas pedal, and ended up smashing the car into a friend's home. His new wife was riding in the shotgun seat.

Luckily Ali and his bride were unharmed, although the groom's wallet didn't come out unscathed.

He reportedly lost the $7,100 deposit he had placed on the rental and is now on the hook for an additional $28,000 in insurance costs.
