The Ferrari 458 Italia is the exotic supercar that raised high-performance Italian machines to another level. The supercar can’t be matched on the track or on the road thanks its astonishing performance and envied aesthetics. As a mid-range Ferrari, the 458 Italia is an ode to the naturally-aspirated supercars from yesteryear. The 458 Italia is the Ferrari that begs to be driven and is one of the most usable supercars ever made.
Every enthusiast respects Ferrari for of its abilities to create a stunning car, and the 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia is one of its best.
The 458 Italia’s Specs Deserve Admiration
One look at the Ferrari’s prancing-horse badge conveys that the supercar has incredible performance. The 458 Italia’s design is the result of an uncompromising decision to put the brand above every other vehicle. Flowing lines that aid in the car’s aerodynamic qualities highlight the supercar’s all-aluminum design. The wide rear end accents the car’s mid-engine design, while the triple-exhaust outlet is a styling cue taken from the iconic Ferrari F40.
While the 458 Italia’s exterior design is beautiful from every angle, the supercar has hidden aerodynamic components that aid the supercar in being stable at high speeds. The moveable aerolastic SMC wings in the front move air onto the radiators, while increasing downforce. But between 124 and 200 mph, the outer edges of the wing move downward to reduce drag.
Where the real magic lies, however, is in the middle of the 458 Italia. Ferrari’s obsession to make the best supercar in the world results in incredible figures:
- 5-liter direct-injected, naturally aspirated V-8
- Seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission
- 562 hp @ 9,000 rpm
- 3,250 lbs. curb weight rating
- 0—60 mph in 3.3 seconds
- 202 mph top track speed
Driving a car with this kind of performance shouldn’t be easy, but Ferrari has engineered the 458 Italia to perform like a true supercar without giving drivers a white-knuckling experience.
