Another exotic ride has been involved in a crash and this time we will be talking about the Ferrari F430 Spider.
Driving a rear mid-engined and rear-wheel drive supercar can have a lot of bad consequences if the guy holding the wheels doesn’t have enough skills, but when we are talking about an exotic ride and Qatar, chances are he doesn’t even care if he crashes it. This particular example of the Ferrari 430 Spider has been driven too fast and it slammed into a passing vehicle in an intersection. According to Wrecked Exotics, the incident took place in Doha, Qatar, but our source isn’t saying on whether anyone was injured in it.
The Ferrari F430 is a supercar which was assembled in Maranello, Italy, between 2004 and 2009. This was designed by Frank Stephenson at Pininfarina and it was offered in two body styles, the two-door coupe and the two-door roadster. It made its public debut at the 2004 Paris Motor Show and it was replaced five years later by the 458. Power to both versions of the F430 was being provided by the same 4.3 liter V8 engine, which was connected to the 6-speed manual or to the 6-speed electrohydraulic manual transmission. Power stood at 491 HP (366 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in under 4 seconds. The F430 Spider has been based on the coupe and made its world premiere in Geneva.
