A Ferrari 458 Italia has been involved in a crash recently in China and this involved a wet road, a lot of speed and a tree.
Driving a rear mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar can turn out to be difficult in wet road conditions, especially if you want to travel fast. This is a lesson a Chinese guy has found out the hard way after completely destroying his ride. According to the local media, the vehicle has hit a tree on slippery road conditions and this has been severely damaged. Chances are it will end up in the scrap yard but the good news is that no one was hurt in the incident, amazingly.
Ferrari has been offering the 458 in two body styles, the 458 Italia (coupe) and the 458 Spider (roadster) between 2009 and 2015, when it was replaced by the 488 GTB. The supercar was introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and it was using a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine under its hood, which was capable of sending a total of 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, to the rear wheels, through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration was made in just 3 seconds and top speed stood at 325 km/h (202 mph). The model was burning an average of 13.3 liters of fuel every 100 km (21.2 mpg UK / 17.7 mpg US) and it was 4,527 mm long, 1,937 mm wide and 1,213 mm tall.
