Another Ferrari 458 Italia Bites the Dust

Ferrari 458 Burned

More like turns to dust it would seem.

Damn, these things are barely out on the streets and we already have a wrecked count of five, according to WreckedExotics. The brand-spanking-new Ferrari 458 Italia replaces the company’s F430 supercar and features a 4.5-liter mid-mounted V8 engine producing 560 horsepower. The car costs upwards of $250,000, gets from zero to 60 mph in only 3.3 seconds, and hits a top speed of 202 mph.

Surprisingly, it does seem like the driver of this one was at fault. According to claims, he was driving a mountain pass in France when the driver noticed the engine caught fire. A passerby grabbed a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, but not before the car was burnt to a crisp.

About The Author

I founded in May of 2006 to share my love of cars. My favorites include the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT and Koenigsegg CCX, and I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the sexiest cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I like imports – Nissan, Audi, Subaru… I love my Pearl Yellow (don’t judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT and plan to get it to around 550 HP one day. I’m also an avid world traveler and love rock climbing.
