Ferrari 458 Italia
The Ferrari 458 Italia is a completely new car: engine, design, aerodynamics, handling, instrumentation and ergonomics.
Four and a half liter V8 delivers 570 horse powers at 9000 revs and 540 N/m at 6000 rpm. This makes the incredible 127 hp/liter from naturally aspirated engine.
Despite the fact that the new engine is significantly more powerful than the V8s that preceded it, the Ferrari 458 Italia produces just 320 g/km of CO2 and fuel consumption is 13.7 l/100 km (combined cycle), the best in the entire segment.
The 458 Italia compared to other super sports cars is a featherweight - 1380 kg with a power-to-weight ratio of 2.42 kg/hp and the results are more than exceptional: 0-100 km/h in under 3.4 seconds top speed of 325 km/h.
The low weight of the car helps a lot with the braking, 32.5 metres 100-0
Like everything else the interior is revolutionary too. The ergonomics are perfect and the main controls are all clustered on the steering wheel.
This car is a perfect proof that Ferrari can make extraordinary cars from every single point of view.
