Ferrari 458 Spider got wrecked on a highway in Italy

Not long time ago, a Ferrari 458 Italia got wrecked as well. This time, another Ferrari 458 got wrecked, just this time it was a Spider, not an Italia model.

As you can see from a video below, a driver obviously just lost control of the car, because he pushed the acceleration pedal too much while turning the steering wheel. The Spider is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine which produces 562 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. What that means is when you drive a car powerful like this, and the car features a rear-wheel drive system, and a road is dry, and you push too much on the gas pedal while turning the steering wheel, you can lose control of your car in a split second. Most people don’t realize such an obvious thing, or they just forget it in most ways and this is what happens. Or it was just a mistake of a “show off”, and it was too late to fix it, because the car started to slide too unexpected.

If you are an experienced driver, and you know how to control a car after it loses control, this won’t happen, but as you can see from the video that this driver wasn’t even trying to control the car, or he didn’t know how, or he just totally lost it while trying to “show off”. Well, that happens a lot with exotic sports cars and their drivers (not all of course).

Such a shame that the car which costs around 257,000 USD ($) got wrecked so easily. Well, I guess most of us aren’t feeling sorry about that, because it’s not our money spent on this car anyways. Let’s just hope that the driver is okay and no one got hurt. The car is just a car anyways.

Check out the video below and see by yourself how exactly this happened. And if you are one of the drivers who drive fast cars, learn from this by watching the video, because foolish mistakes can cost a lot.
