A Ferrari 458 Italia has been involved in a vehicle pileup in Malta recently after its driver has probably lost control of the wheel.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is still one hot ride, despite being replaced by the 488 GTB recently, and this remains one of the most crashed exotic rides up to date. The newest incident in which such a vehicle has been involved is coming all the way from Malta. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the model in question has collided with no less than 4 cars, in Saint Julians. Our source isn’t telling us anything on how the crash occurred of if anyone was injured in it so if you know more about it please feel free to share.
Ferrari has been producing the 458 between 2009 and 2015 and this was offered in two body styles, coupe, the 458 Italia, and roadster, the 458 Spider. Both of them came with the same rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and they were powered by the same 4.5 liter V8 naturally aspirated engine. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 562 HP (419 kW) at 9,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. The engine is sending power to the RWD through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the 458 needed just 3 seconds and top speed stood at 325 km/h (202 mph).
