First Speciale crashes just weeks after worldwide deliveries begin.
It was bound to happen sometime, but why so soon? The first accidentinvolving the brand-new Ferrari 458 Speciale has just been reported fromBerlin, Germany, and it is even more embarrassing than we could have imagined. While itseems the Ferrari driver wasn't at fault this time- it was the other guy whoran a red light- it’s still appalling to see what a Smart ForTwo could do tothis 597 horsepower, $300,000-plus Italian beauty.
The first, painfully disturbing images have just come onlinefrom Germany. Car Spotting Berlin and BerlinRichStreets both hit the scene,reporting that the Smart driver ran the red light and was side-swiped by the458 Speciale, which was driving at a high speed. The Smart flipped over a number oftimes before coming to rest on the median. As for the Ferrari, its front endlooks to be completely totaled, while the rear-mounted 4.5-liter V-8 seems relatively unharmed.
