Ferrari 458 Italia totaled in South Africa image

A Ferrari 458 Italia supercar has been recently crashed in South Africa after its driver lost control of the wheel on a straight stretch of the road.

Driving a powerful vehicle isn’t that easy for most people and until the authorities will decide to introduce a new driver’s license for supercars, we will keep writing about ruined exotic models almost daily. The Ferrari 458 Italia in this article has been crashed into a metal fence after its driver wasn’t paying attention to the road and, because of high speed, he lost control of the wheel.

According to the guys at wreckedexotics.com, the Italian supercar has been crashed in Boksburg, South Africa. Our source doesn’t say anything about other vehicles involved in the crash and we don’t even know what happened to the driver of the Ferrari 458 Italia but, judging by the image above, he probably walked away unharmed, which is more than we can say about his ride.

As a reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009 as a replacement for the Ferrari F430. The 458 Italia is coming as a 2-seat Berlinetta, with a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, powered by a 4.5 liter V8 unit which is producing 562 HP at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
