This will not buff right out.
It's not been a great time to own a supercar in the UK this week. A few days ago, a McLaren 570GT was crushed by an Audi Q5 in a bizarre accident at a supermarket parking lot. Now, a Ferrari 458 Spider and 812 Superfast have been wrecked during an expensive smash-up in London. A BMW M6 Gran Coupe also got caught up in the carnage. It's not clear how the accident happened, but the 458 Spider rear-ended the 812 Superfast and then hit the M6 according to the YouTube video description.
Photos and video footage show the front of the 458 Spider is severely damaged: the bumper is dented and the hood is bent out of shape.
This cosmetic damage could have been repairable, but the front left wheel has caved in, so the supercar has possibly suffered some terminal suspension damage. If so, the 458 Spider could be a total loss given how expensive repairs are on such cars.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast was also left badly damaged in the crash, as the carbon fiber rear diffuser is destroyed. There's also extensive damage to the dual exhaust tailpipes and half of the rear bumper is hanging off. While the 812 Superfast looks more salvageable than the 458 Spider, these parts won't be cheap to replace considering the 789-hp supercar starts at $335,000.
The damage done to the BMW M6 wasn't as severe, but one of the rear wheels is bent and there's a few dents on the rear fender. It's a sad sight watching all three cars being lifted onto a tow truck, but let's hope they can all be repaired. It isn't known how fast the Ferrari 458 Spider was driving when it hit the 812 Superfast, but the droptop supercar is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in 3.1 seconds and max out at 199 mph. Power is provided by a 4.5-liter V8 generating 562 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque.
