How Not to Air Dry a Ferrari 458 Italia

The photo below is the aftermath of a poor decision! A car washer in the UK had apparently become too tempted by the F430’s replacement, the fiery Ferrari 458 Italia. The hired hand proceeded to take the supercar for a spin on damp roadways, a joyride that ended with the restructuring of the car.

Sweet temptation: a car washer in Portsmouth, UK takes Ferrari 458 Italia for a spin and crashes it. Judging by the photos, the Ferrari is totalled. 

The owner took the hypercar to what is called a valeter in the UK–which is a mobile car detailing company. They certainly expected a very different result upon dropping it off! Now yet another glorious 458 hits the scrapheap.

This is certainly not the first or last case of hired help crashing cars. Sometimes it is a valet, others it is a detailer. No matter the case, the urge to grip the wheel of a car like a Ferrari can be simply too overwhelming to ignore. The Ferrari 458 packs a 4.5-ltier V8 engine kicking out 562 Prancing Horses at 9,000 rpm. A specialized 7-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to the rear wheels, which the unlucky car washer could not handle on wet pavement.
