The passenger sustained a leg injury, that is not believed to be life-threatening, and was taken to hospital.

London Air Ambulance also attended and the ambulance service confirmed a man in his 30s was taken to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital while the other person was escorted by the Air Ambulance doctor to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

No other vehicles were involved and no arrests have been made. The car was recovered and the road re-opened by 10pm.

The Italian luxury sports car is one of 10,000 produced by Ferrari and can fetch £220,000 for some of the older second-hand models.

It was named after the famed Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa sports racing car and literally translates as ‘red head’ in Italian – referring to the red-painted cam covers.
