Two Ferrari supercars, a California and a brand new 458 Spider, have been recently crashed in China on a wet road after one of the drivers has lost control of the wheel.
A weird combination of wealthy Chinese, two Ferrari supercars and a wet road has proven fatal for a California and a brand new 458 Spider on a highway in China after one of the drivers has lost control of the wheel and ended up crashing the other Ferrari. The result was engine loss on the 458 Spider, the ruined front fascia on the California and small injuries to both drivers, who were taken to the hospital.
As a small reminder, the Ferrari California has been officially presented to the public back in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show and it’s coming with a 4.3 liter gasoline direct injected V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 450 horsepower, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 458 Spider has been around since 2011 and it’s getting a 4.5 liter V8 engine 570 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. 0 to 60 mph sprint takes just 3.4 seconds.
