A rare Ferrari that was submerged and severely damaged in the Dubai floods is looking for a brave and wealthy buyer. Not even cleaned, the supercar is covered with a thick layer of muck, and the owner is asking for more than its original selling price.

Earlier this year, in April, record torrential rainfall caused widespread flooding in many parts of the United Arab Emirates, causing massive disruptions and property damage in Dubai and elsewhere. The deluge flooded highways, grid-locked traffic, and even inundated houses. While we came across the video of a $2.5 million Pagani Utopia driving through a submerged road, some supercar owners were caught unaware and could not save their ultra-expensive rides from flooding. This rare Ferrari 812 Competizione is one of those unfortunate supercars that were badly damaged during the Dubai floods. Completely covered in a thick coat of mud and muck, the V12 Ferrari appears to have been completely submerged under flood water. Interestingly, it has been put up for sale with an eye-watering asking price of around $750,000, despite its very poor condition.

The Ferrari 812 Competizione is finished in black on the outside and features a yellow racing stripe running down the center from front to rear. The livery is matched with black rims and yellow brake calipers. The cabin also gets the same color combination, with black Alcantara and yellow details. However, the cabin is almost unrecognizable, thanks to a sheet of muck, which can be seen in a video posted along with the listing. Flooding can cause very expensive, difficult-to-fix damages, especially in high-performance cars, which is what makes the asking price sound ridiculous.

However, the 812 Competizione is definitely one of those cars that deserved to be saved. The production of the Berlinetta is limited to just 999 examples, making it quite rare. Furthermore, it is the last version of the F12 that was launched in 2012, adding to its desirability. The 6.5-liter V12 under the hood can rev up to 9500 rpm, helping it produce 819hp and 510 lb.-ft of torque.

The track-focused supercar was launched in 2021 with a starting price of $601,570. However, a well-kept example can easily fetch more than $1.5 million. Maybe someone really brave might take the risk of bringing the flooded Ferrari back to its glory and even make a profit.
