The Ferrari 458 Italia
The 458 Italia is Ferrari’s two-seat, mid-rear engine exotic sport coupe, the result of an uncompromising design approach that integrates style and passion with cutting-edge, track-derived technology. It will be hard to find a better handling car among the street legal ones, or such a fast one.
The 458 Italia’s 570-horsepower direct-injected 4.5-liter V8 engine sends power through its 7-speed dual clutch transmission with F1-style steering column-mounted shift paddles that allow for extremely quick gear changes. The standard E-Diff is an electronic limited-slip rear differential that varies the distribution of torque based on inputs such as steering angle and lateral acceleration. Magnetic fluid-filled shock absorbers react instantly to track conditions and driver inputs.
