Aquaplaning Ferrari 458 speeds in heavy rain and hits SBS bus

Aquaplaning Ferrari 458 speeds in heavy rain and hits SBS bus

The whole island was hit with a heavy rainstorm yesterday, with some experiencing more than just a heavy downpour. 

From this minute-long video, it seems that a Ferrari 458 was caught speeding down East Coast Road in 'not-safe-for-speeding' weather.

The driver subsequently loses control of the vehicle as he attempts to accelerate, swerving left and right across three lanes before hitting an SBS bus and losing its rear bumper. Ouch!

Netizens' reactions to the incident:

This video ticked off a lot of netizens as they expressed their contempt for the Ferrari driver's dangerous decision:

Although the Ferrari did not cause any major harm to other drivers on the road, it is crucial for drivers on the road to remember to slow down and be extra cautious as Singapore enters its next monsoon season in June.

Thoughts and comments? Please and thank you!

Looks more like the driver booted the throttle too hard and lighted up his rear wheels when the car in front of him finally moved out of the way. Not so much about aquaplaning.

I was hoping he did a 360 after spinning, like what F1 drivers do after a spin..

There's a reason why everybody else is slower than him :grin:

By the way, why he stick his head out towards end of video? Expecting cam car to do something?

    Nissan GTR smokes a Mercedes-Benz A45S (quite literally)

    A video made its way onto social media, featuring a Nissan GTR and a Mercedes-Benz A45S AMG 4MATIC Plus drag racing against each other. It was unclear where this incident took place.  Here's the video for your viewing pleasure: For those that do not know, this variation of the A45S is the latest model with the highest specifications currently offered on the market.  Japanese Vs German Engineering Despite the late reaction from the A45S, you can see that this 2.0-litre turbocharged hatchback quickly caught onto the 3.8-litre Godzilla within seconds. What fascinated me was the brilliance of Japanese engineering that allowed the >10 years old GTR, to go head-to-head against a modern-day sports car.  Unfortunately, it was impossible to tell who won that drag race from the video.  Netizens' comments Sad, but so true😥 Haiz...I was disappointed when I realised there wasn't any audio.  Who do you think would have won if the A45S driver had a good reaction time?   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Multiple cars involved in a bizarre accident along Lornie Road

    TL;DR – A Honda Vezel, Mazda 5 and Nissan Note get involved in an accident with multiple public properties damaged   A video of an accident uploaded on Instagram caught my attention today. In it, we find a white Honda Vezel, a brown Mazda 5 and a white Nissan Note involved in an accident. Here’s the video 22-second video for your viewing pleasure. Here’s more footage of the accident (at a different angle)   Disclaimer The white Vezel might or might not be involved in this accident, or the driver might be a good Samaritan who parked at the side to help the occupants of the front two cars. Damage to public property I count a signboard, a lamppost, a tree and a section of the railings. It looks like it’s going to be an expensive affair for whoever was at fault. That’s weird The biggest question after watching the video – “How did the Note end up on the railings?” Online chatter   I legit think this is funny Spread my wings and fly away   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Check out Punggol's new carpark R&R corner

    A small part of a HDB multi-storey carpark in Punggol has been transformed into a comfortable "relax corner". Posted on Saturday (July 3), a fellow Singaporean submitted photographs of a HDB multi-storey carpark located in Punggol Central. In the photographs, a couple of motorcycle lots were transformed into a resting area completely furnished with couches, drawers, and multiple helmets on a ledge. It was speculated that the area could be for food delivery riders who live in the area or riders waiting in the vicinity for more orders. While it was unsure if the space belonged to a single user or open to the public, the amount of effort that it took to transform the area was certainly impressive. According to the Housing Development Board (HDB) regulations, no tables, tents, or chairs are allowed in the facility and any ongoing activity must not affect the parking needs of residents. Failure to heed these guidelines will result in negative feedback and the parties involved will have their permits revoked.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Orange Lamborghini driven dangerously, skids on Raffles Ave

    In this video that is circulating on Facebook,  an Orange Lamborghini is seen to be driven dangerously on Raffles Ave, and is seen to be skidding across an intersection and cutting an SBS bus while doing a left turn. According to the timestamp in the footage, this took place on Saturday evening (8 May). Watch the video here:   While attempting the right turn, the sports car lost control, skidded, then bounced off the kerb before accelerating off.   Clearly, it looks like a wet day and the roads are slippery - We urge all drivers in these conditions to drive with extra care especially while turning at a junction. Later on, the Lamborghini driver made a dangerous, and illegal left turn, cutting an SBS bus at a traffic light intersection. This caused the bus to brake abruptly to avoid a collision with the italian sports car. Source: Google Maps Here's what netizens on Facebook have to say about the incident:
