Spa Francorchamps has claimed another victim, a two-year old red Ferrari 458 Italia, which has recently crashed on the famous Belgian track.
Track days can turn into a nightmare in the blink of an eye as the driver of this red 2012 Ferrari 458 Italia has recently found out, when he took his ride on the Spa Francorchamps. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar has been crashed because it went into a corner too fast, but happily no one was injured, which is more than we can say about the driver’s ego. The incident took place in Belgium, on Spa Francorchamps.
Ferrari has been producing the 458 Italia since 2009 and this is offered in two body styles, coupe (458 Italia) and convertible (458 Spider).
