A Ferrari 458 Spider has been transformed into a pile of metal, ailment plastic and rubber recently in Puerto Rico, after its driver lost control of the wheel and crashed it.
How long has it been since we haven’t seen a crashed Ferrari 458? Well, not long enough, according to this post, which is bringing us this crashed example of the 458 Spider. The yellow finished exotic vehicle has met its end recently, after its driver was speeding at 100 mph (160 km/h) on the highway, when he lost control of the wheel. Sadly, the guy holding the wheel is in critical condition but his wife, who was on the passenger seat, is ok. The incident took place in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Ferrari has been putting the 458 together between 2009 and 2015 and this was a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive supercar, which came as a replacement for the F430. This was offered in a two-seat coupe (458 Italia) or a two-seat roadster (458 Spider) body styles, both of them packing in the same 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine under their hoods, connected to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The unit is capable of putting down a total of 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The 458 Spider has made its debut in 2011, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it has the same 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) as the hard-top but the top speed has been lowered to “just” 320 km/h (199 mph).
