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.

Head over to Wrecked Exotics for more images and info on this crash the other four 458 Italia wrecks.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
