The Ferrari 458 Italia

The Ferrari 458 Italia was the last naturally aspirated V8 production road car released by Ferrari. The car was first unveiled in 2009, with first car deliveries starting in 2010. The model was made through to 2015.

The 458 Italia is widely seen as one of the best designed Ferraris of the modern era. It looks stunning from every angle, and combined with a non-turbo engine and exhaust note to match, sounds just as amazing as it looks!

FERRARI 458 ITALIA – PURE BLISS

It seems that Ferrari was really on a hot streak when it created the 458 Italia. Look at it from any angle. Dive it down any road. There are simply no weak spots. Combining timeless beauty with world-conquering performance and technology, the 458 Italia was an immediate hit. It’s no wonder then that the Italia took home countless awards such as Top Gear’s Supercar of the Year and Robb Report’s Car of the Year.

Let’s start with the mechanicals; the essence of any Ferrari. Mounted behind the driver, a 4.5-litre V8 gives the 458 a primal charisma. Shrieking out across the landscape as the revs climb to 9000 rpm, you would have to be comatose to not feel a tingle up your spine. The specs are impressive: 561 bhp and 398 ft-lbs of torque, available from a remarkably low point on the tach.

A seven-speed Getrag transmission was the only available gearbox. Although the exact figures vary depending on the source, the 0 – 62 mph times are consistently in the low 3-second range. Carbon-ceramic brakes, particularly adept at standing up to track use and abuse, were standard on all 458 Italias.

Adjusting the manettino on the steering wheel leads to changing levels of aggressiveness for the gearbox, differential, throttle response, and shocks. All of these forethoughts contribute to creating a car that is not only fast but nearly perfectly balanced and surprisingly comfortable across all road surfaces.
