'Shark Tank' Star

Oops, I WRECKED My Ferrari

... at 130 MPH

Robert Herjavec -- one of the deep-pocketed investors on "Shark Tank" -- slammed his ultra-fast $350K Ferrari into a wall at 130 MPH ... and TMZ has the glass-shattering dash cam footage.

It all went down this weekend during the Ferrari Challenge at the Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA ... where Robert was racing his 2011 Ferrari 458 against other rich guys in really expensive cars.

Herjavec tells TMZ,  "I crashed in qualifying -- bad and hard hit."



"I was having an amazing lap very fast, just off the course record, and then just thought I could go a little faster (what race car driver doesn’t?)."

Herjavec -- who's reportedly worth more than $100 MILLION -- lost control and crashed into a wall ... crushing the front of his car like a soda can.

But Herjavec -- who miraculously didn't suffer any serious injuries -- didn't pull out of the race. Instead, he got ANOTHER Ferrari and pressed on.

"After the crash I went out and borrowed a friend’s car (good to have friends that lend you a $ 350K car) and 2 hours later I started in 29th and finished 5th. The next day, in the borrowed car, I got on the podium and finished 3rd ! Still leading in the points for the season."

Speedometer says 50MPH just before he hits the wall, not 130. Huge difference TMZ.

How mentally handicapped do you have to be to say he crashed at 130mph when theres a big speedometer on the screen showing he was going 50mph? TMZ - not the brightest crayon in the box.

I'm sure his wife was relieved to hear he was not injured. Maybe she'll have better luck next time.

Uh..he was nowhere near 130 when he crashed. Just because he hit the brakes at 130 doesn't mean he crashed at 130. He was doing more like 40...if that.

This guy is a pretty decent driver and no he isn't a pro like f1 drivers but this guy isn't some retard.

I love to see other angles but I didn't see anything wrong other than pushing it to hard. If you haven't crashed your not a race car driver.

Also 350k isn't **** when it might be able to be fixed and even jr nascars can cost much more and those are treated like tampons.

He was close to 130 before he started to lose control finally hitting the tires faster than 50.
