As good as a mid-engine, rear wheel-drive supercar may be on a dry track or road, this is not the type of car you want to fool around when there is rain and especially without the right kind of tires...
In fact, with the wrong weather conditions, even if you are not challenging your fate, you can still get yourself in heaps of trouble.
The driver of the Ferrari F430 featured in this video should consider himself extremely lucky for not getting into a painful accident after he lost control of the V8-powered Italian supercar in Denver, Colorado.
Jason Thorgalsen, who filmed the incident from the passenger seat, said on his YouTube account that the owner of the car was driving with "bald tires" in the rain.
Here's how he described the scary ride:
"Last month on my cross country drive I stopped for a few days in Denver to visit some of my friends that live there. They love to drive just as much as I do so we decided to take both of their F430 coupes out for a spirited drive.
One of my friends had new tires arriving 2 days after our drive was planned because he had been driving the car so much the tires were bald. We were struggling to keep up with our friend in the other 430 because the wet roads made it almost impossible to keep traction.
The video doesn't show how fast we are actually going but keep an eye out during the video and you'll see we are going at a pretty quick pace!
Thankfully we narrowly missed so many objects like the guardrail, telephone pole, and oncoming traffic which was scaring me because I thought we were going to slide into the oncoming lanes!"
If you want to see the slip up, fast-forward the video to the 4:15 mark.
