A Ferrari 575M has been recently crashed in California after its driver lost control of the wheel on a canyon road.
Exotic cars and lack of experience don’t go well together as the owner of a Ferrari 575M found out the hard way, after he has ruined his ride. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has been crashed on a canyon road, during a Ferrari club drive. The incident took place in Los Angeles, California, and the driver walked away from the incident, without any serious injuries, which is more than we can say about his ride.
The Ferrari 575M is the predecessor of the 599 GTB and the model has been produced between 2002 and 2006. The supercar came in a single body style and it was powered by a 5.7 liter V12 engine, producing a total output of 508 HP (379 kW) at 7,250 rpm and 589 Nm of torque (434 lb-ft), available at 5,250 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint in the Ferrari 575M takes 4.2 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph). The Ferrari 575M has been replaced by the 599 GTB Fiorano back in 2006 and last year, Ferrari has presented its successor, the F12 Berlinetta.
