Ferrari 458: the movie

Ferrari goes über cool with official 458 Italia movie

Look at the Ferrari 458 Italia gallery

This is what we've been waiting for, two Ferrari 458 Italias battling it out in all their visual and aural glory.

It's the official Ferrari film of the 458, but you'll be pleased to discover that it's sans cheese, and high on coolness. A pleasant surprise from the Prancing Horse, usually the first ones to do something a little cringey.

Our Twitter feed has been high on excitable chat from you about this new Ferrari, and this movie only serves to raise the fever.

Filmed at the Mugello circuit and up in the Tuscan hills, the red and yellow 458s go toe-to-toe in a friendly challenge rather than an all-out fight, but it feels very cool and very Italian.

Seeing the cars move and hearing the 4.5-litre direct injection V8, using all of its 562bhp, is where it's at.

Check out our Frankfurt metal gallery for a real life static image of the 458 on Ferrari's stand, or just sit back and lose yourself in the video for three minutes.

You'll want to turn the volume up to 11...

Now share it...
