Another example of the Ferrari 458 Italia has been crashed recently, this time in Hollywood, after reportedly drag racing a Porsche.

We have ended the week with a car crash involving a Ferrari 458 Italia and now we are opening the new one with yet another similar incident, involving the same model of the supercar. The white finished one, with the black roof and the black wheels, has been apparently racing a Porsche when the driver has lost control of the wheel. The front end of the ride has been completely destroyed. The police said that the Porsche driver has stopped and argued with the Ferrari driver being fleeing off. The man driving the Italian exotic ride has only sustained injuries to his wrists.

The Ferrari 458 is a sports car produced in Maranello between 2009 and 2015. The vehicle was the replacement of the F430 and it has been introduced for the first time at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. IT was offered in two body styles, a two-seat coupe, the 458 Italia, and a two-seat roadster, the 458 Spider, both of them getting the same rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The unit found under its hood was a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8, connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Power stood at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The 458 has been recently replaced by the 488 GTB, a facelifted version getting a completely new 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine under its hood.
