Replacing the outgoing Ferrari F430, the 458 Italia represents Ferrari’s latest engineering conquest. The mid-engined 4.5L V8 enjoys power increases over its predecessor as factory numbers point to outputs of 570 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque with the majority of the pull available at 3,250 rpm. The relatively lightweight aluminum chassis results in a 3,042 lbs dry weight with performance numbers suggesting 0-62 mph sprints of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. The 458 Italia is the first Ferrari V8 to break the 200 mph mark. The car will be officially unveiled in September of this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
