A driver in Lisbon, Portugal lost control of this Ferrari F430 and hit a guardrail. The damage in the pics seems to back up the reports of the car speeding. Although the car is ripped in half, reports indicate that the driver walked away with only a few scratches on the head - proving once aging that Ferrari performs extensive crash testing.

You got a point there scooby. Besides the F430 includes the E-Diff, a computer-controlled limited slip differential which can vary the distribution of torque based on inputs such as steering angle and lateral acceleration. I think this helped alot in the car’s safety not only it’s speed capacity.

I could see the picture and it shows the extent of damage while the driver just got few scratches. And yes it only shows the efforts made by the Ferrari Team to the car’s body that has been redesigned to be more curvaceous and aerodynamic. Although the drag coefficient remains the same, downforce has been greatly enhanced for this car. That’s excellent engineering!
