Ferrari’s mid-engined sports car that replaces the F430. First unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 458 Italia stunned audiences with its sexy new design done by Pininfarina under the leadership of Ferraris design director, Donato Coco.
The V8 was enlarged from 4.3L in the F430 to 4.5L, with power and torque increasing as a result. The redline was set all the way up at 9000rpm, and direct fuel injection was added for the first time to a mid-engined Ferrari. The 7-Speed Getrag gearbox shifted through the gears faster than ever, setting new benchmarks for responsiveness.
