A Ferrari 458 Italia supercar has been recently crashed in South Africa by popular property developer Frank Buyanga, after he lost control of the wheel.
Where ever there will be exotic cars there will also be exotic car crashes, this is what we have always said here on inautonews.com, and the latest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from South Africa, where an Italian supercar has definitely seen better days. The Ferrari 458 Italia in question, owned and driven by Frank Buyanga, has been crashed in Cape Town after the property developer has lost control of the wheel. The British millionaire has walked away unharmed.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia is a mid-engined sports car which is replacing the old Ferrari F430. The 458 Italia was officially presented to the public back in 2009, at the Frankfurt Motor Show and it’s powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, also shared with Maserati, which is producing a total output of 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm available at 6,000 rpm. 80 percent of its torque is available from 3,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and the Ferrari 458 Italia has been designed by Pininfarina.
