According to the folks from Wrecked Exotics, the Ferrari 458 Italia was driving fast enough on a highway in China and due to heavy rain, the driver lost control and left the highway stopping into a fence.

Fortunately, the driver wasn’t harm, but we can`t say the same thing about the Ferrari 458 Italia, which was pretty damaged on the right side.

To be a reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia was first unveiled in 2009, the supercar coming with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive, as the replacer of the already forgotten F430.

The Ferrari 458 Italia is coming in two body styles, the 458 Italia (Coupe) and the 458 Spider (Roadster), sporting a 4.5-liter V8 unit under the hood, which develops 562 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque.

The unit is hooked to a 7-speed transmission, making the supercar reach 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds, before going all the way until 325 km/h.
