[VIDEO] Parked Ferrari 458 Italia gets sliced by truck
A parked Ferrari 458 Italia, finished in bright red, has been recently sliced by a big truck in London.
Usually when writing about incidents involving supercars we are used to saying that it was the driver’s fault for not having enough experience and pushing the gas pedal too hard. But sometimes the driver is not even in the car when these things happen, which is exactly the case here.
“Police were called at approximately 2pm to Kensington Square to a collision between a lorry and a parked vehicle. The parked vehicle is a red Ferrari and the lorry was a white DAF truck”, said a Metropolitan Police spokesman.
According to witnesses of the incident, the owner of the Ferrari 458 Italia was just a visitor in the area and he was, apparently, shocked when he returned to his ride. Chances are the insurance agency of the truck will be even more shocked than the driver of the Italian supercar.
The Ferrari 458 Italia has been in production since 2009 and it has a rear-wheel drive and a rear mid-engine layout, taking its power from a 4.5L V8 engine, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. These “figures” are being sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3.3 seconds and top speed stands at 325 km/h (202 mph).
