Ferrari 458 Italia

The Ferrari 458 was brought in to replace the F430 and in no way does it disappoint. With technology gleaned from it’s Formula 1 siblings the 458 comes alive on the race track, indeed the track is the only place you can get any idea of how this car can perform without losing your licence in the first quarter of a mile.

The hairs will be standing up on the back of your neck as soon as you slip into the F1 style cockpit and that’s before the screaming 4.5 litre V8 that’s just over your shoulder bursts into life at the touch of a button. It may be stunning to look at and have a soundtrack to die for but the 458 is certainly not all mouth and no trousers, this V8 revs all the way up to 9,000 rpm and pushes out a staggering 562 brake horsepower. These figures equate to a nought to sixty time of 3.4 seconds and if you’re brave enough the Italia will eventually top out at over 200 mph.

It may be a classic Ferrari in terms of it’s a rear wheel drive but don’t be fooled the acceleration is beyond words and the Formula 1 technology gives massive amounts of feedback making the 458 a stunning supercar to drive. What’s more, the steering is sharp and precise and there’s a huge amount of grip too.
