    Driver gets 200k Maserati Ghibli stuck on the beach and loses its front bar during a failed rescue 

    Bizarre moment a driver gets his $200,000 Maserati Ghibli stuck on the beach – before losing the front bumper in a failed rescue attempt

    • A luxury Maserati Ghibli’s front bar was ripped off when a ute tried to tow it
    • The driver had attempted to navigate the Italian sports car on Stockton Beach
    • But it became stuck, prompting a four-wheel driver to attempt to rescue it
    • Video shows the beached Maserati refusing to budge before the front bar rips 

    The moment the front bar of a $200,000 Maserati Ghibli is ripped off by a ute attempting to tow it has been captured on video. 

    Four-wheel drive tour guide Ian Boicos filmed the bizarre incident at Stockton Beach between Newcastle and Port Stephens in New South Wales on September 30. 

    The beach is open to four-wheel drives but one Maserati driver attempted to navigate his sports car on the beach before getting stuck in the sand.   

    A four-wheel drive then came to tow the Maserati, which is when Mr Boicos, from 4WD tours r us, started filming the incident.

    A driver had the front bar of his $200,000 Maserati Ghibi (pictured) ripped off when a four-wheel driver attempted to tow it out of the sand at Stockton Beach between Newcastle and Port Stephens in NSW on September 30

    In the video, the ute towed the Maserati but the sports car did not budge, which led to the front bar being ripped clean off. 

    Mr Boicos later posted a video and picture of the Maserati to Facebook to the amusement of many.  

    ‘Don’t think Maseratis work too good in the soft sand,’ he captioned the post. 

    Maserati Ghiblis vary in price depending on build but can cost anywhere between $139,000 to almost $200,000.

    Four-wheel drivers can access to more than 22 km of Stockton Beach and over 350 hectares of dune driving at Worimi Conservation Lands, which the beach is part of.  

    To access the beach by four-wheel drive or quad bike, drivers need a beach vehicle permit, which costs $33 for three days.

    Since non-four-wheel drives are not permitted on the beach, it is unclear how the Maserati Ghibli even made it onto the beach in the first place. 

    Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr Boicos for comment.
