Ferrari 458 Italia gets crashed by truck in London

A Ferrari 458 Italia supercar has been recently crashed by an articulated lorry in England’s capital, London, recently.

When speaking about supercar crashes we are used to saying that it was the exotic car driver’s fault because losing control of the wheel, but when there are a lot of expensive rides in one city, London in this case, than the owner doesn’t even have to be anywhere near his supercar for his ride for it to become news. According to the guys at Daily Mail, this red Ferrari 458 Italia has been hit by a lorry in the afternoon, on Kensington Square.

Passersby have reported that the driver of the lorry was shaken but he wasn’t hurt and no one was arrested because if this incident. The owner of the parked supercar hasn’t been seen at the time of the crash. The incident took place close to Hyde Park and High Street Kensington London Underground station and it will leave a big hole in the insurance company.

As you probably already know, the Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009 and it’s offered in a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The only transmission available is a seven-speed dual clutch, helping the supercar accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
