Ferrari 458 Spider gets crashed in South Africa image

The images are showing us a destroyed Ferrari 458 Spider so if you are a Ferrari fan, leave now!

This particular Ferrari 458 Spider has been involved in a close meeting with a tree recently. The incident happened in Eagle Canyon Estate, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where there is a 30 km/h speed limit. It seems that the driver of the exotic vehicle has lost control of the wheel due to excessive speeding which ended up looking like this. Happily no one was injured in the incident, which is more than we can say about the driver, or his ego.

The supercar has a damaged front fascia, with a broken wheel a destroyed bumper, hood, fenders, headlights and so on. The airbags have been deployed too so the owner is probably expecting a huge servicing bill, if the insurance will not cover the incident. We won’t even mention the matte red paintjob, which is aftermarket, along with the various Novitec Rosso parts.

The Ferrari 458 Spider is no longer in production as it has been replaced by the 488 Spider recently. The supercar has been put together between 2011 and 2015 and it was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is making use of the same 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine found on the solid roof version, which is helping it reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in approximately 3 seconds, with a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). The solid roof can be opened or closed in 14 seconds.
