Italian football star Federico Marchetti has been put through any proud car owner's worst nightmare after dropping off his Ferrari at the local car wash.

It wasn't just any Ferrari though, but a shiny new 812 Superfast that would have set the Genoa goalkeeper back a cool $528,000.

Marchetti decided to drop his powerful new toy off at the car wash while he trained with the Serie A club on Monday.

Unfortunately, the goalkeeper was left devastated and angry after the worker tasked with looking after the vehicle got himself in a massive pickle.

Clearly unable to handle the sheer power of the Ferrari, the car wash employee sent the vehicle crashing into a safety barrier on his way to delivering it to Marchetti at Genoa's training base.

The employee also ran into numerous parked cars, leaving the once immaculate sports car a crumpled wreck.

Marchetti glad no one was hurt

While Marchetti was no doubt incensed that his pride and joy had been destroyed, the goalkeeper offered his forgiveness to the car wash worker on social media.

“I am very sorry about what happened," he wrote on Instagram.

“Thank God no-one was hurt, and that is the most important thing.

“I've read a lot of bad stuff written. Let's leave it alone - I hope I won't have to read it any more."

Ferrari describes the 812 Superfast as the most powerful and fastest road-going Ferrari ever built, with a staggering top speed of 339 km/h.
