A Ferrari F50 supercar has been recently involved in a heavy crash in the United Kingdom after its driver lost control of the wheel.
The newest incident involving a supercar is coming all the way from the UK. According to the local media, the vehicle involved was a Ferrari F50 which ended up in a ditch after its driver has lost control of the wheel. The supercar has crashed into a lamp post and this caused some serious damage to the rear end. This might be the most expensive car crash in the United Kingdom since Rowan Atkinson has destroyed his McLaren F1, a few years back.
The Ferrari F50 has been produced in just 349 units between 1995 and 1997 and it was assembled in Maranello, being designed by Pininfarina. The supercar has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, packing a 4.7 liter V12 engine under its hood. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 513 HP (382 kW) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque, being connected to a longitudinal 6-speed manual transmission. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration took just 3.7 seconds in the supercar and the quarter mile was made in 12.1 seconds, at a speed of 123 mph (198 km/h).
