Supercar owners are known to be some of the most aggressive drivers on the road but this story takes aggressiveness of supercar drivers to a whole new level. A 32-year-old driver of a Ferrari 458 Italia was arrested after he attacked the owner of a Fiat 600, which had not given way to him as he tried to overtake it.
According to police, the driver of the Ferrari 458 Italia repeatedly rammed the Fiat 600 after he failed to overtake it. The Ferrari driver, who has not been named, eventually forced the Fiat 600 onto the shoulder, smashed its windows and proceeded to beat up the 32-year-old inside.
An off-duty officer on Rome’s ring road pulled over to step in and called for back up as the Ferrari 458 Italia owner’s passenger joined in on the attack.
Police finally managed to arrest the Ferrari driver his passenger and are in Rome’s Regina Coeli prison. Police said they also found £23,600 ($36,754 USD)in cash in the Ferrari which officers are trying to establish the origin of.
We feel the Ferrari owner should stay behind bars for repeatedly ramming a 458 Italia. Shame on him.
Refresher: Power for the Ferrari 458 Italia comes from a mid-rear mounted 4.5L V8 producing 570-hp at 9,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. Mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox, 0 to 62 mph comes in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of over 202 mph.
