Ferrari 458 Italia aquaplanes in Brazil, gets crashed

The driver of this 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia has lost control of the wheel and crashed his ride after the vehicle aquaplaned during a rain storm.

The Ferrari 458 Italia seems to be the most crashed supercar these days as images with ruined examples of the model keep popping up almost daily, from all over the world. The newest example in which a Ferrari 458 Italia has been crashed is coming all the way from Rio Pardo, Brazil. According to Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar was being driven by a 73-year old businessman who lost control of the wheel after aquaplaning during a rain storm. The model has been flipped over but it seems that the driver walked away.

Ferrari has been producing the 458 Italia in Maranello, as a successor to the F430, since 2009. The model is offered in two body styles, coupe and convertible, and it stands at 4,527 mm long, 1,937 mm wide and 1,213 mm tall. The 1,485 kg weighing supercar has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, being powered by a 4.5 liter V8, shared with Maserati. The unit has been rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque and it’s mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.3 seconds and the top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
