A Ferrari 458 Spider has been recently crashed in Mallorca after the driver lost control of the wheel on a straight section of the road and hit the guardrail.
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 Spain, where a Ferrari 458 Spider has definitely seen better days. The driver and his brother have picked up the Italian supercar in question from a Ferrari dealership and after just two hours of driving he lost control of the wheel slamming the 458 Spider into the guardrail and stopping it into a cliff. The two brothers walked away unharmed from the crash.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 458 Spider has been officially presented to the public last year, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it’s powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine which is developing a total output of 570 horsepower at 9,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 398 lb-ft available at 6,000 rpm. The unit is mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed F1 transmission and the 0 to 62 mph takes just 3.4 seconds. Top speed is 198 mph and the price in the United States has been set at 257,000 USD.
