With 562 horsepower, this two-seat, mid-rear engine exotic sport coupe is extremely quick and nimble. This car is the last naturally aspirated mid-engine V8 Ferrari, making it the final offering in the evolution of the naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari lineage, which started with the Ferrari 308 driven by the original Magnum P.I. The Ferrari 458 is everything a Ferrari should be: handsome Italian looks thanks to Pininfarina, an F1-derived drivetrain with a beautiful sound, and crisp GT3-developed handling. The interior was designed with help from Michael Schumacher, the most-successful F1 driver at the time, so the driver has access to all of the important controls without taking your hands off the wheel.

- Exterior Description/Details:
The 458 is considered one of the most beautiful Ferrari designs of all time. This example is Rosso Corsa (red) with black factory alloy wheels. The vehicle comes with Ferrari carbon ceramic brakes, and red brake calipers. Ferrari exposes the 4.5L V8 with a glass cover to show off the red valve covers, the rear hatch can be opened for fluid service. This vehicle has a backup camera and parking sensors equipped from the factory. The front trunk is 8.1 cubic inches, and specialty luggage cases designed by Ferrari to perfectly integrate into the trunk are available. The underbody is protected by a paneling that runs from the front to the back of car, and has two ducts in the front for brake cooling. All lights are all LED, except the headlights are bi-xenon, and integrate beautifully into the hood's design. The triple, center exit exhaust is exotic and functional. Ferrari designed the rear of the car to have heat extractors at the sides of the tail lights that run across the rear compartment deck lid, for better heat extraction, as well as for improved aerodynamics.

- Interior Description/Details:
Leather Seats, Navigation System, Bluetooth, Backup Camera, Parking Sensors, Premium Package. A switch on the steering wheel, called a manettino (which is Italian for "little manager"), integrates suspension, traction control, stability control and shifter systems, allowing the driver to choose optimum settings for their current conditions. The interior was designed to be driver-centric, so most of the interior controls are pointed directly at the driver. The steering wheel has the turn signals, windshield wiper controls, brights, suspension settings, and engine start button integrated into the design. On top of the wheel are shift lights, so the driver doesn't have to look down at the tachometer while driving. The center gauge pod features a large yellow tachometer, with two multi-functional displays on the left and right sides. Two controllers sit on the left and right of the gauge pod to control the information that the driver wants to see. The column-mounted shift paddles are aluminium and remain independent of wherever the steering wheel is, perfect if the tail breaks loose. The seats are aggressively bolstered and wrapped in a tan, diamond stitched leather, perfect for holding the driver and passenger in place.

- Engine Description/Details: The 458 Italia's 562-horsepower, direct injection, naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission with F1-style steering column-mounted shift paddles. This is the first mid-engined Ferrari with direct injection. The F136 V8 produced the 124.9 horsepower per liter, making it one of the most powerful naturally-aspirated engines in all of automotive history. To keep up with its 9,000 rpm redline, Ferrari designed the engine with a dry-sump oil system. The iconic flat-plane crankshaft, robust internals, and Ferrari sound tuning give the driver the same confidence of a GT3 race car driver. Ferrari used a Getrag 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with the 458, specifically designed by Ferrari for shift-feel, and to pair with the F136. Shifts happen within milliseconds, and are slightly more aggressive than similar Getrag units, but still simulate a well-executed manual transmission shift.
