Ferrari 458 Italia, I know this is not a very new Ferrari. And you can spot very easily around the world. Honestly, I have no idea how people can afford to buy a Ferrari 458 Italia so easily! Anyway, the reason I write about a Ferrari that was put into production on 2009 is, I never wrote about it.
Because, I find Ferrari 458 Italia as a main stream Ferrari. Like Golf to Volkswagen, Focus to Ford. Very easy to spot everywhere, despite the state-of-art technology, it is like a new iPhone. Every loves iPhone but we all know that it is not something really special nowadays.
The mutual thing with Ferraris and Apple products; every single new product is way faster than the previous one. And they emphasise it all the time.
However, I have to be fair. Ferrari 458 Italia features Formula 1 technology, V8 engine capable of revving up to 9000 rpm and many electronic gadget that are transferred directly from Formula 1. Thanks to these technologies, 458 Italia produces 562 HP and 540 Nm of torque. And the engine is coupled by a double clutch automatic. Official results says, 3.3 seconds is enough to reach 100 km/h but unofficial people say, it is achieved by cheating (Ref. Chris Harris’s YouTube video). The top speed is 325 km/h.
In terms of technology, 458 Italia is a unique car but in terms of exclusivity, I cannot say the same. I am sure many Ferrari lovers will not agree with me but we all have different thoughts and that turns our world into a better place :)
