Another example of the Ferrari 458 Italia has been involved in a crash, this time in the United Kingdom.
Our Car Crashes category is starting to fill up with ruined units of the Ferrari 458 and the newest example is coming all the way from the United Kingdom. According to the guys from the Italian supercar in question has been crashed by its 41-year old driver. He has been travelling south on the M56 when he lost control of the wheel, probably because of speeding, flipping his ride over. The good news is that the guy has managed to escape with only minor injuries but the bad part is that his ego probably needs a lot of medical care.
The rear mid-engined, rear-wheel drive Italian supercar has been in production since 2009 and it has recently left the assembly line in order to make room for its successor, the 488 GTB. This was offered in two body styles, 2-door coupe, the 458 Italia, and 2-door roadster, the 458 Spider. Both of them came with the same 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine under their hoods, which is capable of putting down 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 3 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph). The 458 Italia has been officially unveiled during the Frankfurt Motor Show, back in 2009.
