The driver of a Ferrari F430 has “parked” his precious ride into a canal in China recently, after losing control of the wheel.
Despite the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is taking place as we speak, in Detroit, we just couldn’t simply ignore the images posted below because it’s not like you see a supercar in the water every day. The model in question is a gorgeous black finished Ferrari F430 which, according to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, has ended up into a canal. The unfortunate incident took place in China and we have no clue on what happened to the driver so if you have more info on this subject, please feel free to share.
The Ferrari F430 is the predecessor of the current 458. The model has been in production in Maranello between 2004 and 2009 and it was offered in two body styles, the two-seat coupe and the two-seat roadster, both of them having the same rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The F430 stands at 4,511 mm in length, 1,923 mm in width and 1,214 mm tall / 1,234 mm tall for the Coupe and the Spider, respectively. Power is coming from a 4.3 liter V8 engine, which is capable of producing a total output of 491 HP (366 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed electrohydraulic manual transmission, sending power to the rear wheels. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the F430 can sprint in 4.0 seconds and it can go up to 315 km/h (196 mph).
