New images with the Ferrari 458 Italia crashed during the Gumball 300 have been released.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is part of the three supercars crashed during the 2013 edition of the Gumball 3000, with the other two being the Porsche 997 Turbo and the Lamborghini Murcielago. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has been crashed in the rain, near Riga, in Latvia. The 458 Italia wasn’t owned by the driver, who apparently won the ticket to the race. I bet this makes a great beer story for him.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia has been designed by Pininfarina. The model is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, which is producing a total output of 562 HP, at 9,000 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm, available at 6,000 rpm. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive system. The Ferrari 458 Italia has been officially presented to the public back in 2009 during the Frankfurt Motor Show, as a replacement for the F430.
