A brand new Ferrari 458 Italia has been recently crashed in Tampa, Florida, after its driver probably lost control of the wheel.
Exotic and powerful supercars combined with not enough driving experience and a small dose of “watch this” will provide the perfect recipe for a disaster and a place into our Car Crash section. The newest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from Tampa, Florida, U.S., where a Ferrari 458 Italia has definitely seen better days. The Italian supercar in question, equipped with a Carbon Fiber Package, has been crashed, but no one was injured. We have no clue on how the 458 Italia ended up looking like this, but if you do, please feel free to share.
The Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009, when it replaced the old F430. The Italian rear mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar in question is taking its power from a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, which is 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), available at 6,000 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, helping it sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
