Guess first Ferrari 458 crash, win US$500

We've all drooled over Ferrari's new 458 Italia and undoubtedly some will end up being written off in a bingle. So, it almost seems logical that a website is offering US$500 to the person who can most accurately predict the day and time of the first crash.

The competition is being run by Wrecked Exotics, a website that covers crashes of the most expensive cars in the world, as well as some rather more down to earth cars, planes and trucks in unusual states of congress.

According to the terms and conditions, the competition covers any type of major crash, including those by test drivers and reviewers, but will exclude professional race meets. In the event of a serious injury or death, the US$500 prize will be donated to a road safety charity. The competition also seems to be open to contestants from all around the world.

The site has gathered statistics on previous Ferrari crashes, noting that of the 17,300 Ferrari 360s made, there have been 403 documented crashes, or about 2.3 per cent of the total 360 population. For the more recent F430, out of the 10,000 cars produced, 96 crashes have been recorded.
