Possibly the most uncompromising and prettiest stature Ferrari have produced over the recent years, along with its euphoric V8 and F1 pedigree, the 458 Italia is an athlete, a model and a singer.
Upon selecting “Race” and moving up through the revs you are engulfed with that goose bump giving shrill staccato wail that will encourage full-bore downshifts when and wherever possible, the soundtrack is pure symphonic.
The driver focused cockpit has you engaged and tucked into a tight yet comfortable race position as you stare up at the great big yellow tachometer indicating the redline at 9,000RPM, whilst gripping the Leather F1 style sports steering wheel which famously features most of the driving functions; indicators, wipers, driver modes and a big red ‘Start Button’ to initiate the bellowing V8.
With the Italian orchestra made up of 8 cylinders thumping behind the driver producing mind bending acceleration don’t miss this opportunity to acquire the last of the Naturally Aspirated V8 Ferrari’s and the ultimate driver’s car.
