It’s not every day that we have to write about a supercar crash in Uruguay, but it seems that the South American country has its fair share of exotic rides.
The newest supercar incident is involving a Ferrari F430, which has been long gone, finished in an appealing red. The model in question has been crashed recently in Punta del Este, in Uruguay, after not respecting a stop sign. The supercar has hit what seems to be an old Peugeot 205 and, even if the damages seem to stop at a cosmetic level, the owner is most likely not expecting a cheap servicing bill. Happily no one was injured in this incident but the driver will probably pay a closer attention to traffic signs from now on.
Offered in a two-seat coupe (F430) or a two-seat roadster (F430 Spider), the Ferrari F430 has been produced between 2004 and 2009 in Maranello. This was a rear mid-engined and rear-wheel drive exotic ride which succeeded the 360 and preceded the 458. The model stood at 4,511 mm long, 1,923 mm wide and 1,214 mm tall (coupe), weighing 1,450 kg and riding on a 2,601 mm long wheelbase. The suggested retail price for it in the United States was $186,925. Power came from a 4.3 liter V8 petrol burner, with 491 HP (366 kW) at 8,500 rpm and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,250 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint was made in 4.0 seconds and top speed stood at 315 km/h (196 mph).
