Another Day, Another Ferrari 458 Italia Wreck

August 19, 2010 - 10:00 AM PST

In the computer industry, there's a popular term called Moore's law which basically states that computers will double in power every 2 years. The trend has held steady since 1965.

It now looks like the automotive industry needs to come up with its own law describing the frequency of crashes involving the Ferrari 458 Italia. In the past 90 days, there have been 9 wrecks. One crash every 10 days. Can the trend possibly continue at this rate?

We don't know, but here's the latest wreck. This is the first one to occur in the United States and is the result of engine fire once again. The wreck took place in Costa Mesa, CA yesterday afternoon. When will this madness stop?
