CAPE TOWN – When it comes to accidents, it's safe to say that this was an expensive one.
Posted on Facebook by Look at this photo shows a red Ferrari 488 GTB colliding with a Chevrolet Utility on Somerset Road in Green Point on Saturday afternoon.
In the video we see a Toyota Etios make a turn on the avenue, with the Chevrolet bakkie following immediately afterwards, but clearly the latter did not see the road carefully enough as immediately after the turn, the red Ferrari comes into the picture with what looks like a significant speed and with nowhere to go, the sports car collides with the bakkie before leaving the road and crashing into bushes.
The Ferrari 488 GTB was launched in South Africa as early as 2015, with a starting price of R4.2 million, but has since been replaced by the F8 Tributo .
488 GTB is powered by a 3.9 liter V8 turbopetrol engine that pro saves 492kW at 8000 rpm and 760Nm at 3000 rpm, directed to the rear wheels with a seven-speed gearbox. With a dry weight of only 1370 kg, the sports car is said to be sprintable from 0-100 km / h in just three seconds flat, and from 0-200 in 8.3 seconds, as required, while top speed is listed at 330 km / h.  But it's not just fast, because Ferrari brought decades of Formula One and endurance racing skills to bear on the chassis and aerodynamic design of the 488.
GTB, by the way, stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta
