Another Ferrari 458 Italia has been involved in an unfortunate incident, this time in Chile.
Driving a rear mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar fast isn’t that easy, as you would probably think, and testimonies stand numerous images in our Car Crashes category. The newest incident is coming all the way from Santiago, Chile, and it is involving a Ferrari 458 Italia. The supercar in question has been crashed during a Ferrari event, at the Codegua international Speedway, but happily no one was seriously injured.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is the official successor of the old F430. This is being offered in a roadster body style too, the 458 Spider, and it has been in production since 2009. Rumor has it that the company is already working on a replacement for the popular supercar but this still remains one of the best ones ever created. The 458 has a 4.5 liter V8 engine under its hood, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the RWD through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the 458 needs just 3.3 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
