Ferrari 458 Italia news - More new 458 Italia pics! - 2009
Natural light really picks out all the swoops and angles on it - see that sharp swoop below the doors? Is that actually painted white or
just very shiny carbon fibre?
The front end somehow appears even more aggressive than in the studio shots,
with those steep bonnet lines climbing into the raked-back headlights. Speaking of which, what do you think of the running lights? We know everyone’s
at it, but does it suit Ferrari?
Our favourite detail is hidden away on the left-hand side of the steering
wheel. It’s a subtle little dial that reads ‘Pit Speed’. Is this an adjustable
version of an F1-style pit lane limiter? Maybe it’s a detail poor Luca Badoer helped develop…
Just in case you’d forgotten the 458’s headline figures, a quick reminder. It’s
armed with a 4.5-litre direct injection V8 kicking out 562bhp and propelling the
mid-engined two-seater from 0-62mph in ‘less than 3.4 seconds’ before topping
out at a heady 202mph.
Just imagine how it’ll sound! Actually, don’t imagine - just watch this video:
