Ferrari 458 Italia hits pedestrian in the Philippines image

The driver of this Ferrari 458 Italia has accidentally hit a pedestrian in the Philippines and the incident was covered by the local media.

Supercar ownership in some Asian countries means exaggerated high taxes and shipping expenses but once you’ve got your new ride, you’re the king of the road. Big mistake, because this is how accidents happen, as the driver of this Ferrari 458 Italia has found out the hard way. The Italian supercar accidentally hit a pedestrian who was probably jaywalking, considering the fact that there is no pedestrian crossing anywhere in sight. We’re not sure what happened to the pedestrian but chances are he escaped the incident.

The Ferrari 458 Italia is coming close to the end of its life, as the supercar has been in production for the past 5 years. It has been officially presented to the public back in September, 2009, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it’s currently offered in two body styles, two-door coupe and two-door spider, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power comes from a 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque 4.5L V8 engine, mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Performance figures stand at 3.3s for the 0 to 100 km/h sprint and 325 km/h (202 mph) for the top speed.
