Officers on patrol spotted the stolen vehicle at about 11:30am which was stationary on Vincent St.

Police say the occupants accelerated when officers approached the car. The Ferrari then crashed about 100m away and caught alight.

The man died at the scene.

The other occupant was taken to hospital and is now assisting Major Crash Investigators and Internal Affairs detectives with the investigation. Road closures are currently in place and motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.

In a separate incident, a white Nissan Patrol was travelling south when the vehicle left the South Coast Highway and collided with trees.
