Having a blown tire can really suck, but imagine the tire exploding at around 190 km/h (120 mph). Well such a thing happened to a Ferrari F430 driver, which took his car on a “casual” drive. He was allegedly doing about 290 km/h (180 mph) when he heard a strange noise. He decided to slow down and investigate the problem on the emergency lane. He was a bit too slow in this regard, as the tire burst while he was still braking, at around 190 km/h.


The results, as you can see, aren’t that bad, but it still makes me sad to see a beauty like the Ferrari F430 damaged like that. Hopefully blown tires won’t cause other victims, be them supercars or regular vehicles in the future.
