Australia has seen the crash of a Ferrari 458 Spider these days after its driver has probably lost control of the wheel and hit a tree.
When compared to a lot of European or Asian countries, Australia is not that “rich” in supercars, mostly because of the massive 33 percent luxury car tax, so an incident involving such a ride can’t go away unseen. As you can see from the image posted above, the crashed vehicle is a Ferrari 458 Spider. The guys at Adelaide Exotic Car Spotting (FB) are saying that the reasons of the crash remain unknown but happily no one was injured in the incident.
The Ferrari 458 Spider is the convertible version of the 458 Italia. The model was officially unveiled during the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and it has an aluminum retractable hardtop which is weight 25 kg less than the one of its predecessor, the F430 Spider. The roof can be retracted in 14 seconds. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes the same as in the 458 Italia but the top speed has been lowered to “just” 320 km/h (199 mph).
