Another example of the Ferrari 458 Speciale has been recently crashed, this time in South Africa.
If you were “concerned” that Ferrari drivers learned how to drive because no exotic ride born in Maranello has ended up in our Car Crashes section for quite some time now, don’t worry, because they didn’t. The newest example of a Ferrari being crashed is coming all the way from Durban, in South Africa.
According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has been crashed on the highway after its driver lost control of the wheel. Speed was probably a good cause for the accident but we are not sure what happened to the driver or if any other vehicles have been involved, so if you know more than we do on the subject, please feel free to share.
As you probably already know by now, the Ferrari 458 Speciale has been officially unveiled last year and its convertible version, the 458 Speciale Aperta, has been also introduced. The model in question is the spiritual successor of the 360 Challenge and the F430 Scuderia and it has the same 4.5 liter V8 engine under its hood, which has been upgraded and it is now capable of producing a total output of 605 HP (445 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The Ferrari 458 Speciale can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in just 3 seconds and 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds.
