Steffen Korbach's Pagani Zonda F Clubsport Roadster crumpled after he lost control on a wet road and smashed it into a barrier.
The Zonda - one of just 25 in existance - was left a mangled wreck with debris from the 7.3-litre supercar strewn over the motorway.
However, Mr Korbach - and his 21-year-old passenger - emerged with just minor bruising.
German investment banker Mr Korbach, 28, lost control of his vehicle on the A10 Autostrada in Italy.
A source said Mr Korbach, who had been driving within the speed limit through an area of roadworks, was considering getting the car repaired.
The Zonda F Clubsport Roadster he was driving is rated as one the greatest modern day supercars with Top Gear host Richard Hammond a massive fan.
At £1.4million, it's one of the world's most expensive new cars with only the £1.5 million Koenigsegg CCXR and £1.6 million Bugatti Veyron Super Sport costlier.
But neither the Koenigsegg nor Bugatti are believed to have ever been written off in a crash.
The Italian Zonda, with its rear-mounted V12 engine, produces 650bhp and is capable of doing 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 214mph.
It lapped the Top Gear track quicker than the Bugatti Veyron.
Tommy Wareham, director of prestige dealer Super Vettura, said: ''The Pagani Zonda is quite possibly the last ever true-blooded supercar - it's a ferocious poster car for the 21st century.
''It's incredibly exclusive and bespoke and, as these pictures show, it's as safe as it is fast.''
Financier Mr Korbach, who also owns a string of other sports cars including two Bugatti Veyrons, two Lamborghinis and a Porsche-based Gemballa Mirage, was on his way to Milan for the official presentation of the new Pagani Huayra - which he has recently ordered.
The Huayra is Pagani's replacement for the Zonda.
He has also ordered the new McLaren MP4-12C - a car widely anticipated to be Britain's greatest ever supercar.
