Vehicle Description

The 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia is everything an Italian supercar should be: fierce, balanced, stylish, and, at times, temperamental.

First and foremost, the 458 Italia is about stunning looks to match its supercar performance. Here, the 458 Italia succeeds almost effortlessly. A low stance; clean, graceful curves; and undeniably Ferrari mid-engine proportions combine to give the 458 Italia a modern interpretation of Ferrari's sporting essence.

Just behind the gorgeous interior is the heart of the 458 lives, in the form of the 4.5-liter V-8 engine. Rated at a stout 562 horsepower at the 9,000 rpm redline, and 400 pound-feet of torque, 80 percent of which is available from 3,250 rpm, the 458 Italia's V-8 is, in a word, magnificent. It's not the most powerful in the supercar world, but it's one of the most sonorous, and located right behind the passengers with only a thin divider between, it transforms from mellow and quiet to raucous and race-inspired with just a short sweep of the throttle pedal. 

As the sound awakens, so does the speed, vaulting the 458 Italia forth in frenetic style, hitting 60 mph in under 3.4 seconds and carrying on to a top speed of 202 mph. Both the Spider and the standard 458 Italia use the same Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, inspired by Ferrari's F1 race cars.

Handling is, as you'd expect of a mid-engine Ferrari, remarkable. Balance, grip, and stability are all at such a high level that they can only be partially accessed on the street. Steering feel is almost otherworldly, communicating through the driver's hands with exquisite detail the surface of the road and the behavior of the tires, while requiring relatively light inputs. The synergy of the engine, gearbox, suspension, chassis, and the overall setup of the 458 Italia makes it one of the most engaging, rewarding, and simply fun-to-drive cars on the planet.
