A crashed unit of a Ferrari 458 Italia has been spotted recently at a repair shop in North Carolina.
The Ferrari 458 Italia seems to be the most crashed supercar these past few months and the most recent example is coming in from North Carolina. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has been spotted in Charlotte, at a repair shop. Our source isn’t saying anything on how the crash occurred but judging by the looks of it, it is salvageable. If you happen to know more about the topic, please feel free to share.
The mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar has been produced by Ferrari in Maranello between 2009 and 2015 and it was recently replaced by the 488 GTB. The new model is a significant facelift which is bringing, besides the visual tweaks, a brand new 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is opening a new era for Ferrari with turbocharged units. This is more powerful than the previous 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine used on the 458.
The supercar was offered in two body styles, the 458 Italia (coupe) and the 458 Spider (roadster) and both were carrying the same 4.5 liter unit, with 562 HP (419 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm, connected to the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration was made in just 3 seconds and top speed was up to 325 km/h (202 mph).
