One driver may be giving her insurance company an expensive bill after she accidentally backed into a top of the range Ferrari while attempting to parallel park outside a Virginia coffee house.

Video being shared online shows the aftermath of the accident on Saturday in Great Falls, near Washington, DC.

It shows the rear of the woman's Mercedes convertible sitting on the bonnet of a Ferrari 458 Speciale with a car alarm blaring.

The incident happened at a weekly meeting of local car enthusiasts. One man asks the woman who was behind the wheel of the Mercedes: "Are you serious?"

Fairfax County police say they helped the drivers exchange information, but no one will be charged.

The Ferrari 458 has a list price of more than 290,000 US dollars (£225,000) and a top speed of over 200 miles per hour.
