A new supercar crash is coming from South Africa and it is showing a Ferrari 458 Spider which has definitely seen some better days.
The Ferrari 458 Spider is still capable of providing the needed adrenalin for its driver, despite being replaced recently by the 488 Spider, but become too confident behind the wheel and the inevitable will happen. This is a lesson learned the hard way by Ben Moseme, the organizer of the popular Macufe festival in South Africa, as he has managed to crash his supercar by not properly warming the brakes. The 458 Spider has hit a house fence and a power box and judging by the image posted above, it is repairable. Nobody was injured in the incident.
Ferrari has been producing the 458, in two body styles, coupe and roadster, between 2009 and 2015. The supercar has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and it is making use of a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8, capable of putting down a total of 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The Ferrari 458 Spider has been shown in 2011, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it is bringing an aluminum retractable hardtop which is weighing 25 kg and it can be opened and closed in 14 seconds. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is the same as the 458 Italia’s and top speed has been lowered to 320 km/h (199 mph).
