The 2014 458 Italia delivers superb vehicle dynamics with an ideal weight balance for a mid-rear engined sports car - 58 per cent rear, 42 per cent front.

The Ferrari 458 Italia is a high performing and exclusive 8 cylinder mid-rear engined car which has won over 35 awards all around the world. The 458 Italia mixes innovative technology with exclusivity and design.

Thanks to a 4.5L V8 engine, which punches out 570 hp, the F1 dual-clutch gearbox and a 3274 lb dry weight, the 458 Italia sprints from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.3 seconds and hits a maximum speed of over 202 mph (325 km/h).

The 2014 458 Italia delivers superb vehicle dynamics with an ideal weight balance for a mid-rear engined sports car - 58 per cent rear, 42 per cent front. Evolved electronic control systems also help guarantee maximum performance in all driving conditions. Its suspension set-up, featuring twin wishbones with L arms at the front and a multilink set-up the rear, is tuned for ultimate road-holding and superlative handling.

The 458 Italia's closest rival is the McLaren MP4-12C.

Exterior Styling

The 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia features a single opening for the front grille and side air intakes, with aerodynamic sections and profiles designed to direct air to the coolant radiators and the new flat underbody. The nose also sports small aeroelastic winglets which generate downforce and, as speed rises, deform to reduce the section of the radiator intake and cut drag.

The car's sills are characterized by two keel forms that act as fairings to the rear wheels, while the rear bodywork between the rear diffusers acts as the surround to the novel triple exhaust tail pipes, a styling cue that recalls the legendary F40 and gives the 458 Italia's tail an aggressive sporty stance. The engine, in mid-rear V8 Ferrari tradition, is visible below the engine cover.
