A Ferrari 458 Italia supercar has left the road in Scotland recently after its driver has lost control of the wheel and it stopped on the grass near the road.
We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars there will also be exotic car crashes, and the latest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from Scotland, where a Ferrari 458 Italia has definitely seen better days. According to Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question was “too powerful for the driver”. The incident took place in Wigtownshire, Scotland.
As a small reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia is replacing the old Ferrari F430. The 458 Italia was officially presented to the public back in 2009, at the Frankfurt Motor Show and it’s powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, also shared with Maserati, which is producing a total output of 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm available at 6,000 rpm. 80 percent of its torque is available from 3,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and the supercar has been designed by Pininfarina.
