Close call in a Ferrari F430

When the weather is not good, supercar owners usually leave their toys in covered, warm garages, because on wet roads it's difficult and dangerous to push a fast RWD supercar. The american photographer Speedracer38 had a blast in a Ferrari F430 in the slippery roads of Denver, and while chasing his friend in another F430, suddendly the car slides and almost crashes into a pole and the guardrail. It looks like the manettino setup on the car was set on Race that makes the traction and stability control less invasive, there is a reason why manettino has also Rain mode..

  1. Notice, how the weather gets much worse throughout the video but the drivers keep on speeding the same way.. Good that nobody got hurt!

  2. Is f430 doing 100 Km/h on 5th gear with over 5.000 RPM? Please look at 2:50 in video

  3. Hi Anonymous :-)
    Notice that the white numbers on the tachometer are in Miles per Hour (MpH)and the yellow numbers in Km/h.
    So : ~105 MpH = 168 Km/h. Not too bad whis this weather.

    For info you can keep in mind : 1 mile = 1.609 Kilometer

    105*1.609 = 168.945

    Have a nice day
