In Ferrari's first official announcement the 458 was described as the successor to the F430 but arising from an entirely new design, incorporating technologies developed from the company's experience in Formula 1. The 458 is powered by a 4.5 litre V8 engine of the ‘Ferrari/Maserati’ F136 engine family, producing 562 hp and 398 lb ft torque at 6,000 rpm with 80% torque available at 3,250 rpm. The engine also featured direct fuel injection, which is a first for Ferrari mid-engine set-ups in its road cars. The car's suspension features double wishbones at the front and a multi-link set-up at the rear, coupled with E-Diff and F1-Trac traction control systems, designed to improve the car's cornering and longitudinal acceleration by 32% when compared with its predecessors. The brakes include a prefill function whereby the pistons in the calipers move the pads into contact with the discs on lift off to minimise delay in the brakes being applied. Ferrari's official 0–62 mph acceleration is 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 210 mph and Ferrari quote a power to weight ratio of 5.75 lb per horsepower.
This Rosso Corsa Red example with black leather trim looks typical of all Ferrari 458's - absolutely fantastic from every angle. A 458 Italia offering up 562bhp combined with Formula One technology means this is a real driver’s offering from the Modena based manufacturer. Purchased by our vendor just last year from a Ferrari main dealer, this example has 18 months main dealer warranty remaining and was serviced as recently as March 2021. Options added include the all-important hydraulic front lift kit, carbon kit to the interior and full electric lumbar supporting seats with red stitching and red carpet set. The history file shows no less than the required 10 service stamps from new and we think this fabulous supercar car is very good value with the versatility to be purchased either by a collector or just to be enjoyed. A fabulous motorcar.
