A Ferrari F430 supercar has been recently crashed by an 18-year old driver after pushing the gas pedal too hard and losing control of the wheel.

We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars there will also be exotic car crashes and the latest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from Alpharetta, GA, where a Ferrari F430 has definitely seen better days.

According to the guys at the 18-year old driver of the Italian supercar has been badly injured and, both him and the 21-year old passenger, have suffered burns on over 8- percent of their bodies after the F430 has been crashed. The Ferrari was a gift from the boy’s father, so no wonder he ended up badly injured after being given a powerful car at only 18 years old.

As a reminder, the Ferrari F430 has been manufactured between 2004 and 2009 and it was the successor of the 360. The supercar was officially presented to the public at the 2004 Paris Motor Show and it was succeeded by the 458 Italia. The F430 was coming in two body styles, two-seat Berlinetta and two-seat Spider, having a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar is powered by a 4.3 liter V8 engine which is developing a total output of 483 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 465 Nm (343 lb-ft).
