The driver of a Ferrari 458 Italia has managed to crash his ride in China, recently, after he lost control of the wheel while speeding and slammed into the guardrails.
Exotic supercar crashes can sometimes lead to fatalities as one died in Beijing, China, in a Ferrari 458 Italia crash. The driver of the supercar has squeezed two more people in his two-seater and one of them has lost his life after the Italian vehicle has slammed into the guardrails while speeding. The other two occupants were critically injured and were taken to the hospital. The incident took place in China’s capital, Beijing.
The Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009 and it’s currently being assembled in Maranello, in two body styles, 458 Italia and 458 Spider, both of them having a two-seater, rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is coming from a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, sending power to the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.3 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
