Ferrari News – See How You Should Not Drive A 720-Horsepower Ferrari When You Drive It For The Second Day
Driving a high horsepower machine isn’t for everybody.
On YouTube, a video appeared with a Ferrari accident that seemed to happen out of the blue. The driver wanted to flex in front of the camera and accelerate sharply, but flew off the road and damaged the 488 Pista coupe quite seriously. According to the video description, the car was only one day old.
How Did The Accident With 488 Pista Happen?
Apparently, the shooting of the car was carried out on purpose. At first, a bright red two-door car was driving behind the camera car, but later it moved forward on the highway. Then the driver slowed down and changed gears in order to accelerate sharply. But instead, the car skidded and it, hitting the curb, found itself in a ditch.
Probably, the driver turned off or weakened the stabilization system, but did not have sufficient driving experience to cope with the skid on his own. The video was filmed in the Netherlands.
In the comments, most people either scoff at the driver’s inexperience. Also, some of them are trying to guess the reason why the car turned so sharply. And some do not try to look well-mannered and say that the driver has a lot of money but no brains.
Accident Vehicle Specifications
Introduced in 2018, the 488 Pista is equipped with a 720-horsepower (770 Nm) twin-turbo V8. It takes just 2.85 seconds to accelerate to 60 miles / h, and the coupe reaches 120 miles / h in 7.6 seconds. The Ferrari 488 Pista, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6, 2018, is the successor to the special series of Ferrari V8-cylinder vehicles like 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, and 458 Speciale. It is recognized as the best racing coupe for the road.
2 weeks ago, another high-profile crash occurred in the UK. Adam Griffiths from South Wales won the 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX sedan in the lottery. However, the very next day, the Briton completely crashed the car! The lottery was run by Dream Car Giveaways and involved a used Evolution IX FQ-320 with not that big mileage. The FQ-320 was a limited edition version made specifically for the UK market. The engine in this car was quite strong.
