Ferrari F430 Crashes Into Drain Near Bukit Beruntung
With 483 hp and 465 Nm of torque on tap, the Ferrari F430 is no child’s play. The power output may seem puny by today’s standard but one still need a steady pair of hands and a lot of driving skills to tame this prancing horse. Incompetence and poor judgement can land you in the gutter.
And that is exactly what happened to this red F430. According to the Info Roadblock JPJ/Polis Facebook page, the accident occurred on the PLUS Highway from Bukit Beruntung heading to Bukit Tagar. For some reason, this stretch has a reputation for being a common spot for car crashes.
Based on the photos provided, the crash involved multiple vehicles including a blue Perodua Alza, which can be seen laying on its side not far from the F430, a Toyota Velfire and another car.
The Alza seems to be in a much worse condition with its heavily damaged roof and front bonnet. The posting does not provide any information about the victim’s condition but we hope everyone is safe.
As for the Ferrari, the front bumper and the underbody seem to have taken some beating but everything else looks fine. Apart from a bruised ego, the driver should be all right too.
About Ferrari F430
The F430 hails the arrival of a whole new generation of Ferrari V8-engined berlinettas. Every inch of the car was inspired by the engineering research carried out at Ferrari’s Gestione Sportiva F1 Racing Division. The result is a highly innovative design characterised by cutting-edge technologies perfected for use on a road-going car.
Two of these innovations are world firsts for a production car: the electronic differential (E-Diff), initially developed by Ferrari for its F1 single-seaters and designed to make the most of the engine’s torque to optimise traction, and the handily placed steering wheel-mounted commutator switch (better known to the Scuderia’s drivers as the manettino), which directly controls the systems governing vehicle dynamics.
The F430′s light, compact 4,308 cc engine that gives the car its name is completely new ; it punches out 490 hp and delivers a specific power output of 114 hp/l and 465 Nm of torque. Needless to say, performance is outstanding: acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in four seconds flat and a maximum speed in excess of 315 km/h.
Every area of this latest Prancing Horse car has been influenced by Formula 1. For instance, a braking system using carbon-ceramic discs has been installed within the car as standard. The discs offer superior stopping power and give the driver the satisfying feeling of being in complete control of the vehicle even in the most demanding situations. The F430′s aerodynamics are also highly innovative for a road car: its shape has been honed to generate air flows to increase down-force and improve cooling. Every last component of this Ferrari has been perfected to deliver outstanding performance and driving pleasure.
