Ferrari 458 Italia hits tree, splits in half

A Ferrari 458 Italia has recently met its end in Birmingham, AL, after its driver has lost control of the wheel and hit a tree, which caused it to split in half.

Exotic supercars seem to be getting crashed almost daily and one of the most destroyed vehicles is the Ferrari 458 Italia. The most recent example of such an unfortunate incident is coming from Birmingham, AL, where this 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia has met its end. According to Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has hit a tree and split in half. The 458 has been specially designed to do this on purpose, but I’m curious what the servicing bill will look like.

The Ferrari 458 is being offered in two body styles, the 458 Italia (Coupe) and the 458 Spider (Convertible), and both of them have two seats and a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, which is shared with Maserati. The total output produced stands at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, out of which 80 percent is available from 3,250 rpm. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.3 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
