The footage was filmed in the US by the car's passenger and was uploaded to Reddit.
The man was driving at high speed in the rain before the car spun.
"We are driving at 315kph, 320kph, I don't care." says the driver on the video.
He and his friend were left in shock after seeing the crashed supercar totally destroyed and engulfed in flames.
Fortunately, the men weren't harmed by the crash but put other lives in danger.
