A yellow finished Ferrari F430 has been crashed recently in China, on a wet highway, after its driver lost control of the wheel during overtaking another vehicle.
We end the week with yet another supercar crash which is now involving a Ferrari F430. The Italian vehicle has recently met its end on a wet highway, in China, near Fuzhou, in Fujian Province. According to the guys form CarNewsChina, the model in question has been crashed after its driver has lost control of the wheel while trying to overtake another vehicle. The supercar has hit the guardrail three times but happily both the driver and the passenger didn’t sustain any serious injuries, which is more than we can say about the yellow ride.
The Ferrari F430 is the predecessor of the current 458. The model has been assembled in Maranello between 2004 and 2009 and it was officially presented to the public at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. This came in two body styles, a two-seat coupe and a two-seat spider and both had a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The 4.3 liter V8 engine, connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed electrohydraulic manual, was found under the hood, producing a total output of 491 HP (366 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,250 rpm. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the F430 needed just 4.0 seconds and top speed stood at more than 315 km/h (196 mph). Production of the supercar was ended in 2009 when the 458 was introduced.
