The Zimbabwean property tycoon Frank Buyanga has recently crashed his Ferrari 458 Italia in Cape Town after the millionaire lost control of the wheel in wet weather.
We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars there will also be exotic car crashes, and the latest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from South Africa, where a Ferrari 458 Italia has definitely seen better days. According to the guys at GT Spirit, the Italian supercar in question has been driven by Frank Buyanga, who has crashed it last Thursday in Cape Town after losing control of the wheel. The English millionaire has cheated death and walked away from the incident.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, which is producing a total output of 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 540 Nm, available at 6,000 rpm. 80 percent of the torque is coming in from just 3,250 rpm. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Ferrari 458 Italia has been unveiled back in 2009 during the Frankfurt Motor Show.
