The New Ferrari 458 Italia

Updated on March 14, 2011

With the immense knowledge that they have gained over the long past years, Ferrari was bound to create a model that would set new super sports cars standards for the next decade. The New Ferrari 458 Italia is simply AWESOME!

Ferrari obviously applied their best Formula 1 knowledge and experience in designing the 458 Italia. Starting with the powerplant, Ferrari built an almost all aluminium normally aspirated 4.5 litre V8 that boasts an astounding 570 horsepower. The design was so aerodynamically applied that not only does the car look super sporty but you can still trace elegant and noble Ferrari lines in it as well. This design is so outstanding that it creates a downforce of 360 kg when it’s rocketing at 300 km/h.

This means that the new Ferrari 458 Italia will definitely be glued to the road.

As it has happened before with some Ferrari models, the new Ferrari 458 Italia will certainly be a collector’s item for the lucky ones that can afford to get their hands on one! It will come very close to the 200 to 240 thousand Euro range.

The Ferrari 458 Italia outer looks are impressive, the distinct cascading headlights gives a serpentine look to it and the three centre exhaust pipes just spells power. The interior is totally driver or shall I say pilot orientated. The steering wheel holds knobs for the turning signal lights, windshield wiper and the high beam light together with the power button. The upholstery fitted in is as truly as original as Ferrari has hand crafted and sewn in many years in black leather.

The imposing engine can reach 9000 rpm in a pulse out in the open road if necessary and yet docile in city streets and the gearbox can deliver a continual and fluid binary. No manual gearbox whatsoever, Ferrari decided to fit the new 458 Italia a 7 speed automatic with double clutch.

As it can reach high speeds in a flash, for stopping power, Ferrari supplied the new 458 Italia with carbon ceramic Brembo brakes. A Formula 1 type sophisticated and innovative suspension together with the new E-Diff electronic differential guaranties that the new Ferrari 458 Italia can relish its accelerating power whether in a straight road or on a winding track!

Performance wise it’s just breathtaking, 0 to 100 km/h in just less than 3.4 seconds and with a startling top speed of 325 km/h.

There is no doubt that the new Ferrari 458 Italia is a pure-blood and that will set new sport car principles that other auto makers will certainly follow!

      Autoaficianado thanks for the read! As in previous Ferrari models, the manufacturing nºs are limited, this I guess to promote them to be collectors editions even before they leave the assembly line!

      Not only would this be one hell of a car payment, but I'd have more than a few tickets to be sure...

      That is, so long as the cops could catch up with me, of course. ;)
