The internet search of ‘Ferrari’ has been banned in China after the son of a Communist Party leader has died in a Ferrari 458 Italia.
According to the guys at jalopnik.com, internet searching of the ‘Ferrari’ word has been banned in China after the illegitimate son of Jia Qinglin, a leader of the Communist Party, has died in a crash with a Ferrari 458 Italia. Even if the supercar has two seats, the son of Jia Qinglin has invited to girls into his ride and after probably speeding around in his exotic car, the young man eventually crashed and died on the spot. The two girls were injured in the unfortunate incident and no one was wearing a seatbelt.
This isn’t the only crash in which the driver of a Ferrari 458 Italia is losing his life and earlier this year, the same exotic model has crashed near Taranto, on highway 172, in Italy, after a four-car pileup. Besides the driver, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt either, two other people were killed and ten injured. As a small reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, developing 562 horsepower and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft of torque), mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
