Drive a Ferrari 458 Italia
Ferrari continues to improve upon perfection with the 458 Italia. The Ferrari 458 Italia is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive V-8 Berlinetta that was first unveiled to the public on September 15, 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Designed to be a successor to the Ferrari F430, the 458 Italia is derived from an entirely new design platform which integrates technology developed from Ferrari’s involvement in Formula 1. Derived from the shared Ferrari/Maserati engine department, (Maserati has essentially been the luxury division of Ferrari since Ferrari took full control in 1999 after having a majority stake in the company since 1997) the 458 Italia produces 560 hp at a screaming 9,000 rpm. 398 foot pounds of torque are delivered at 6,000 rpm, with 80% percent of the torque at 3,250 rpm! The naturally aspirated engine features direct fuel injection, a first for Ferrari mid-engine street cars. 0-60 mph takes just 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Breaking the 200 mph barrier, makes the Ferrari 458 Italia the first volume production Ferrari to scale the 200 mph mark.
