Ian Poulter Shoots Golf Balls Through LaFerrari Aperta

Golfer sends it with chip shot through window of $5m Ferrari Aperta

  • Most expensive trick shot ever?

  • The Postman delivers ball through mail-slot Ferrari window


Most people play a round of golf to relieve stress, but for pros like Ian James Poulter, that back nine can be anything but relaxing. So how do you prepare for the pressure of a PGA Tour event or Ryder cup? You hit balls at your fleet of million-dollar exotic cars.

Poulter’s done well for himself on the PGA and European tours, amassing a fleet of luxury cars including the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta shown in this clip as well as the rest of the Mega-Ferrari grouping of the 288 GTO, F40, F50, and Enzo. Poulter posted a clip to Instagram last week chipping balls into an AMG GT 4-Door, but that’s positively pedestrian next to the Aperta, worth $5 million or so.

An errant shot here damages one the carbon bodywork of a car where just 499 were ever made. You’re not going to find a replacement at your local LKQ, and you’re not finding a new window at Speedy tomorrow.

“How else would I practice playing with Ryder Cup pressure,” said in the insta clip (via AutoEvolution). We can’t argue, because the only thing that could add more pressure to this shot would be hitting a golf ball into the window of someone else’s $5m Ferrari.

So watch him thread the needle with a golf ball more easily than getting through the narrow doorway to enter and exit the car. Even more impressively, it doesn’t bash through the glass on the other side. The passenger side door trim might have some strange dimples in it, though.
