The driver of a Ferrari 458 Spider has crashed his ride recently in Milan after trying to avoid a speed trap and losing control of the wheel.
Another incident in which a Ferrari 458 was involved is coming into our attention once more and this time we get to talk about the drop-top version of the model, the 458 Spider. The model in question has been crashed in Milan, Italy, recently after its driver lost control of the wheel, in heavy rain. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the driver of the Italian supercar has been trying to avoid a speed trap and he ended up crashing his ride into a pole. The good news is that no one was injured in the incident, the bad news is that we cannot say the same about the supercar too.
The Ferrari 458 has been in production between 2009 and 2015 and it was offered in two body styles, the 458 Italia and the 458 Spider. The supercar came with a rear mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout and it has made its public debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. This was using a 4.5 liter V8 naturally aspirated engine under its hood, connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The unit was rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needed 3 seconds and top speed stood at 325 km/h (202 mph). The 458 has been recently replaced by the 488 GTB.
