SINGAPORE - Bright red and gleaming.
The car had stood out on Orchard Road on Feb 24.
It bore the licence plate number, SKC 922T.
According to court documents, Mr Ma Chi's licence plate number was SKC 922T.
Aiden Chong, 14, was thrilled when he saw the rare Ferrari 599 GTO.
Only 599 of these exist in the world.
The Secondary 2 student had excitedly shouted to his two friends, “GTO!! GTO!!” before snapping three shots of the car.
The Ferrari had been stationary at the traffic light near Forum shopping centre on the Friday afternoon.
Noticing Aiden taking pictures of his car, the driver, who was wearing a pair of white racing gloves, smiled and waved at the teen.
Aiden, who started taking pictures of luxury cars in February, frequents Orchard Road and Millenia Walk to spot these cars.
He told TNP that he loves photographing cars like the Lamborghini, Maserati and Ferrari.
On that day, he had captured other luxury cars like an Aston Martin and a Lamborghini when he saw the red Ferrari.
Describing the car, Aiden said: “It was shiny and looked brand new. It had no flaws on it and it was extremely beautiful.”
He was disappointed when he saw a Facebook post during a sleepover at a friend’s place on May 13. The post said that a Ferrari 599 GTO had crashed in Singapore.
Said Aiden: “I saw the car plate in the picture online and quickly went to check my folders of car pictures.
“I was shocked and quite disappointed when I saw that the car that I had photographed in perfect condition had been ruined that badly in the crash and that people had died and been injured.”
