The driver of a Ferrari 458 Italia has managed to crash his ride in the United Kingdom recently after losing control of the wheel and slamming into the guardrail.
The Ferrari 458 Italia seems to be the most damaged supercar these past few months and the latest example in which such a model has been involved is coming from the United Kingdom, where the red example pictured below has hit the guardrail. According to the local automotive media, the driver of the supercar has lost control of the wheel because of excessive speeding. The crash took place in West Yorkshire. The driver walked away uninjured.
Ferrari has introduced the 458 Italia back in 2009 as a replacement for the F430. This is available in a two-seat Berlinetta and a two-seat Spider body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The 458 Italia can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
