A brand new Ferrari 458 Speciale has been recently crashed in Germany for unknown reasons and one thing is for sure, this will definitely be a huge service bill.
The very first incident recorded with the brand new Ferrari 458 Speciale is coming all the way from Germany, where such a supercar has been recently crashed. According to the local automotive media, the Italian supercar in question has hit a Smart ForTwo. Details on the crash remain unknown for the moment but it seems that the Smart ForTwo driver is to blame. The incident took place in Germany’s capital, Berlin.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale is the spiritual successor of the 360 Challenge and the F430 Scuderia. The model in question has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, back in September. The supercar is getting the same 4.5 liter V8 engine from the 458 Italia and 458 Spider under its hood which is good for 597 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.0 seconds in this supercar. One of the most important features found on it is the Slip Angle Control system, which is optimizing the torque distribution between the rear wheels, analyzing the slip angle and comparing it to target values.
