English high roller Sam Trickett got into a car accident over the weekend and although he’s fine his famous red Ferrari 458 Spider most definitely is not.

The Everest Poker ambassador Tweeted a photo of the wrecked car on Saturday saying that he was “gutted.”

It’s unclear if the car is salvageable -- the front end is crushed -- but considering Trickett has over $20 million in lifetime live tournament earnings he’s definitely got a shot at repairing it.

Trickett purchased the 458 in 2012 calling it, “The worst financial decision of my life… But I can’t stop smiling.”

Here's a look at the devastation:
