The city of Nanjing rented out the wall to Ferrari to celebrate 20-years of its presence in China for $12,000. Officials say that Ferrari was not given the approval for doing donuts.

The only damage done to the wall was leftover rubber from burnt tires.

Refresher: Power for the Ferrari 458 Italia comes from a mid-rear mounted 4.5L V8 producing 570-hp at 9,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. Mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox, 0 to 62 mph comes in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of over 202 mph.
