Ferrari 458 Italia

ferrari 458 italia revealed
Forget the California folks, if you're planning to make a Ferrari purchase this year, get on the waiting list for the recently revealed Ferrari 458 which is the mid-engine V8 replacement for the Ferrari F430. This new gorgeous Italian stallion features a 4.5 litter V8 which will generate an impressive 562 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, powering the Italia from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Incredibly, even with all this power, the Ferrari 458 will still get a reasonable 17.1 mpg. There are also rumors flying around that Ferrari will incorporate the KERS system found on its Formula One cars (think turbo button). That would be sweet. The Italia is set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September so start booking your plane tickets to Germany now.
