Anthony Hamilton, the father of F1 racer Lewis, had a friend (and we do mean had in the past-tense) with a Porsche Carrera GT who offered to let him take it for a spin.

Unfortunately, he took it a little too literally. From The Daily Mail:

"[Hamilton] ploughed up a grass verge, crashed through a hedge, and came to rest in a front garden. Last night, Mr Hamilton wouldn't say who owned the car, but apologised profusely."

Still, if you're going to wipe out into someone's garden, you should do it in style. And, continuing the Daily Mail's obsession with Jeremy Clarkson, they even quote part of his Carrera GT review.
