The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been crashed in what is believed to be the first recorded incident with the brand new supercar.
The first recorded crash of the Ferrari 458 Speciale is coming from Berlin, Germany. The Italian supercar in question was driven by a female who was speeding inside the city. A Smart car made a left turn in front of it and the rest is “history”. The drivers of both vehicles have suffered injuries but their lives are not threatened. The 458 Speciale will probably end up in the crusher after this accident, or with a huge service bill, depending on what type of insurance it has.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been introduced in 2013. The model lapped the Fiorano track in 1:23,5, being actually just 0,5 seconds slower than the F12 Berlinetta. Power is being provided by the same 4.5 liter V8 engine found in the regular 458, which is now producing a total output of 597 HP (445 kW), at 9,000 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm (398 lb-ft), available at 6,000 rpm. The supercar can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 3 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9,1 seconds.
