The driver of this Ferrari 575M Superamerica has managed to total his ride after losing control of the wheel.
Earlier today, we have been reporting about a young Chinese woman who has crashed her McLaren MP4-12C and now, the newest supercar incident is coming from the same Asian country. However, instead of the British exotic ride, the model in question is a rare Ferrari 575M Superamerica. According to the local media, the model in vehicle has met its end after the driver has lost control of the wheel and hit the barrier at the side of the road and probably a lamp post as well. The incident has happened in Guangzhou, China.
Ferrari has been producing the 575M between 2002 and 2006. This has been designed by Lorenzo Ramciotti at Pininfarina and offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a front engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar stood at 4,550 mm long, 1,935 mm wide and 1,277 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,730 kg. Under its hood there was a 5.7 liter V12 engine, capable of putting down no less than 508 HP (379 kw) at 7,250 rpm and a peak torque of 588 Nm (434 lb-ft), available at 5,250 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration was made in just 4.2 seconds and top speed stood at 325 km/h (202 mph). The Superamerica was introduced in 2005 and it was the convertible version of the 575M Maranello.
