It is the £200,000 pound car - that can go from nought to sixty in just three seconds.

But turns out the Ferrari is still no match for a Cornish beach.

A striking green sports car has sunk into the sand at Watergate Bay.

It was there for a photoshoot - but its wheels got trapped in tracks on the beach.

A tractor had to be brought in to pull it free.

The supercar did not suffer any damage.

A spokesperson for Ferrari said: "'Unfortunately, when the Ferrari 458 Spider was off-loaded from the trailer, the rear wheels bedded-down into the ruts created by the tractor, giving the impression that the car had beached itself."
