Ferrari Hits A Bangalore Speedbreaker On Camera (Video)

Ferrari 458 Italia jumps over speed bump

Indian roads and Italian supercars are two things that are not made for each other. This is because our Indian roads are filled with potholes and speed breakers, which are okay for Indian cars that have huge ground clearances. However, they are not ideal for supercars with super low ground clearances. Generally, people who own these supercars are very careful and drive very slowly over these speed bumps. But recently, a video has been shared online which shows a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar going airborne on a speed bump in Bangalore. The Ferrari 458 Italia used to cost about Rs 4.5 crore when it was on sale here in India.

Ferrari 458 Italia Goes Airborne

The video of this particular Ferrari 458 Italia jumping after speeding over a speed bump has come courtesy of Supercars Club India from YouTube. In this short clip, a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar can be seen coming from a turn at high speed. It can be noted that there was a public transport bus on the right lane and a man on a bicycle on the left. Now, because the Ferrari was already carrying a lot of speed, the driver could not stop the car fully and he jumped it over the huge speed bump.

Thankfully, the speed bump was not steep, and because of it, the owner landed it smoothly on the road. Soon after being airborne with all four wheels off the ground, it came back down on the road, and the owner then once again pushed the accelerator and went away. A few people on scooters and bikes can be seen recording this unique incident. From the video, it appears that the Ferrari 458 Italia, despite being airborne, was okay, and no damages could be noticed.
