Ferrari 458 Italia crashed at 2013 Gumball 3000 image

A Ferrari 458 Italia has recently become the second supercar to be crashed at this edition of the popular Gumball 3000 rally.

After seeing a time has come to witness yet another Italian supercar suffer the same faith, at the same automotive “event”. This time we’re talking about a Ferrari 458 Italia, which has hit a patch of standing surface water while apparently travelling at legal speeds. Aquaplaning lead to the crash, which affected the whole front end of the supercar. Now that’s what I call bad karma.

The Ferrari 458 Italia has been officially presented to the public back in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Italian supercar is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, which is developing a total output of 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque available at 6,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven speed dual clutch transmission which is sending all the power to the rear wheels. The Ferrari 458 Italia has been designed by Pininfarina.
