Red with yellow calipers, (no offence Terry) it deserved to be crashed, plus he cheaped out on the seats.

those seats look like they're made for the F12 or Cali lol.

Racing seats the best for 458.

That crash happened over 2 years ago I believe (from memory) and the driver was killed. I think he suffered an aneurysm at the wheel. It is/was a coupe Terry.

That was another thoroughly similar to the current one. The one I posted is a fresh story. Here is the older one:

It's the same accident. Look at the spec of the car, the angle of the front wheel, the way the roof was cut by the fire brigade to get the driver out etc.

crashed 458

As the post above said the crash happened over 1 and a half years ago. the driver is still in hospital with life changing injuries, and also as above he suffered a stroke while driving the car. all in all very sad, he was one very nice man. and loved his Fcars.

Lol, you're right, have never seen GTSpirit reposting something, it was written as they don't know what happened to the owner but they answered their question themselves two years ago. Funny crap. (Not for the driver though...) By the way, there are countless 458 crashes like that where peeps destroy the car in less than 2 hours. Afrojack, the one on Mallorca, etc...

Thoroughly distasteful comment, Mark. When people's lives are at stake there's no need to be crass.

My apologies, I had no idea on the circumstances. Was in poor taste.

Very grown up apology Mark. I suspect I have done the same at times. Glad Onno said something.

So here's my apology for all the times I've said something in jest that wasn't very funny.

Thanks Onno and Mark.

That's why this forum is better than the other site with mods.
We can be self policing, civil, and remain friends.

Probably this italian guy owns the record. The video is taken by his relatives that were recording the epic moment of taking home the brand new spider...

Don't believe everything you read. EVERYTIME a supercar is crashed, people say that the car was two hours old. It is never true. At least, I have never seen a verified case. It is true that the video seems to be made by people who know this driver, e.g. the guy says "go back" to the girl who driving after the incident, and I also see a Ferrari seat belt in the back. But that doesn't mean the car was 2 hours old.

You should hear the stuff that people make up about my car. It is very funny to stand in a crowd around your car and hear what they say about it - it is often the biggest load of nonsense. Best thing is, when they find out you are the owner, they are going to argue with you, if you don't agree with them they say that you don't know your own car....
