The newest supercar incident is coming all the way from Portugal’s capital and it is involving a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta.
Usually supercar crashes these days involve models such as the Ferrari 458 Italia, but every once in a while, an older model from the Maranello based automaker is going to need some servicing. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the incident in question is coming from Lisbon, Portugal, as the young driver of the red supercar was trying to show off, but eventually lost control of the wheel and crashed his “baby”. The good news is that no one was injured in the incident, the bad news is that we cannot say the same about the Ferrari F355, or the driver’s ego.
Ferrari has put together the F355 in 11,273 units, between 1994 and 1999 and this was offered in three body styles, Berlinetta, Targa Top and Spider, all of them having the rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The length of the supercar stands at 4,249 mm, the width at 1,900 mm and the height at 1,171 mm. The 3.5 liter DOHC V8 unit was found under its hood, connected to the wheels through a wheels through a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed F1 electrohydraulic manual transmission. The F355 GTS has been introduced to the family back in 1995 and it was based on the Berlinetta, but offered a removable targa style hard top roof, which could have been stored behind the seats. Only 2,577 units of the GTS have been produced and this was the last GTS Targa style model to be assembled by Ferrari. The F355 Spider came in 1995 and it was assembled in 3,717 units.
