A classic Ferrari F40 has been recently crashed by a Dodge Dart in Canada whose driver ran a red light.
Usually when writing about supercar crashes we’re used to saying that it was the exotic car driver’s fault for whatever happens, but this is not the case in this example. According to the local automotive media, the Ferrari F40 pictured below was crashed by a Dodge Dart, whose driver ran a red light. The accident took place in Ontario, Canada. The Italian supercar was driven by a Ferrari mechanic, who was returning from a test drive. The owner’s identity remains unknown for the moment. No one was injured in this incident.
As you may remember, the Ferrari F40 has been produced between 1987 and 1992 and just 1,315 units have been assembled in Maranello. The supercar had a mid engine and rear-wheel drive layout, taking its power from a 2.9 liter turbocharged V8 engine, which was producing a total output of 478 HP (352 kW) at 7,000 rpm and it had a peak torque of 577 Nm (425 lb-ft), available at 4,000 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint took just 3.8 seconds and top speed stood at 324 km/h (201 mph).
