2010 Luxury Preview: V-8 Is Enough

  • Paul Meyers

Ferrari fires up its ultra-powerful 458 Italia.

The Ferrari 458 Italia will be the next prancing horse to leave the Maranello stable. This replacement for the mid-engine F430 will feature an ultra-high-revving engine, an aluminum chassis, twin-wishbone suspension, triple-tip exhaust, and Pininfarina design. The car’s name denotes its 4.5-?liter engine displacement and its eight cylinders, which will fire up to a 9,000 rpm redline.

Release dates and pricing for the 458 Italia have yet to be announced, but the car is expected to produce 562 hp and 398 ft lbs of torque, making it the most powerful V-8 production model Ferrari has ever manufactured. Its power, combined with a low weight of 3,042 pounds, will help the Italia reach a top speed of 202 mph.
