Rented Ferrari 458 Italia gets crashed in London

A rented Ferrari 458 Italia has managed to hit a lot of “things” before stopping but happily both occupants walked away.

Renting a supercar is all about showing off, but a lot things can happen in a split of a second, as the driver of this red Ferrari 458 Italia had found out, the hard way. According to Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question was driven at 125 mph when it hit a curb and some “obstacles”, such as metal railings, a tree and eventually the wall in the picture above. Next on the list would have been some train track, but happily the wall stopped it. The incident took place in London, England.

Ferrari has introduced the 458 Italia as a replacement for the F430 back in 2009, with its rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar is offered in two body styles, coupe and convertible, and it’s taking its power from a 4.5 liter V8, rated at 562 HP (419 kW), at 9,000 rpm, and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, helping it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and assuring a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
