The driver of a Ferrari 458 Italia has crashed his ride in Russia killing a pedestrian in the incident.
Russia is one tough place to drive, as we have all seen some weird YouTube videos recorded by dashboard cameras, and even supercar crashes are weird over there too. According to Wrecked Exotics, the driver of this Ferrari 458 Italia has killed a pedestrian who was trying to cross the road but couldn’t get out of the way in time. The pedestrian was thrown into the air and was killed on impact.
The guys at zero2turbo.com are stating that the 458 Italia has collided with another vehicle, which was responsible for the death of the pedestrian and this seems more plausible, considering the looks of the Italian supercar after the crash. The incident happened in Moscow, Russia, and if you have more info on it, please feel free to share.
The Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009 and the model is being assembled in Maranello. The supercar is currently being offered in two body styles, coupe and spyder, and it has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 4.5 liter V8 unit, shared with Maserati, which is good for 562 HP and 540 Nm of torque.
