The car, which goes for about $300,000, was wrecked in a crash in Great Falls.

Officials say they attribute the cause of the crash to speed.

Investigators say the driver was taken to the hospital with only non-life threatening injuries.

"A reminder to slow down, or it could cost you," says Fairfax County Police.
