The first ever recorded crash of a Ferrari 488 GTB is showing us a damaged white-finished example of the supercar.

Things went from being good to a total nightmare for this 22-year old who has been driving this Ferrari 488 GTB on the A57. According to Wrecked Exotics, the driver of the Italian supercar has been apparently street racing against another Ferrari and an Audi R8 when he lost control of the wheel while accelerating which has resulted into the exotic model being thrown against the tunnel wall. Our source is also saying that the 22-year old isn’t the owner of the supercar and this belongs to a “merchant”, meaning that it is owned by a dealership.

The Ferrari 488 GTB has been shown six months ago, in a premiere, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The model is replacing the 458 Italia and it is bringing some fresh touches made to the exterior and to the cabin. The supercar stands at 4,568 mm long, 1,952 mm wide and 1,213 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,475 kg. Under its hood we can find the 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which has replaced the old 4.5 liter naturally aspirated unit. The total output sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic dual clutch transmission is 661 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes just 3.0 seconds and top speed stands at 330 km/h (205 mph).
