A Ferrari F430 Spider has recently met its end in Mexico after it was crashed and it caught fire afterwards.
Mexico and supercars don’t get along to well and chances are that this Italian supercar belonged to drug cartel members of the Zeta or Sinaloa. We’re not actually sure on how the crash occurred but one thing is for sure, speeding was a main factor. The flames coming after the impact managed to completely destroy this Ferrari F430 Spider. We’re not sure what happened to the driver. The incident took place in Mexico City.
The Ferrari F430 Spider has been officially introduced at the Geneva Motor Show and this is the convertible version of the regular F430. The model in question is taking its power from the same 4.3 liter V8 gasoline engine, used on the F430, which is producing a total output of 483 HP (360 kW), at 8,500 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 465 Nm (343 lb-ft). The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in the Italian supercar takes 4.0 seconds and top speed stands at 315 km/h (196 mph). The Ferrari F430 has been in production between 2004 and 2009 and it was replaced by the 458 Italia (458 Spider in case of the F430 Spider).
