In Ferrari's first official announcement of the car, the 458 Italia was described as the successor to the F430 but arising from an entirely new design, incorporating technologies developed from the company's experience in Formula 1.[4]
[edit] Engine

The 458 Italia is powered by a 4,499 cc (4.499 L; 274.5 cu in) V8 engine derived from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design, producing 570 PS (420 kW; 560 hp) at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 540 N·m (400 lb·ft) at 6,000 rpm[5] with 80% torque available at 3,250 rpm.[4] The engine features direct fuel injection, which is a first for Ferrari mid-rear engine setups in its road cars.[4]
[edit] Transmission

The standard transmission is a Getrag dual-clutch 7-speed transmission, similar to the Ferrari California.[4] There is no traditional manual option, making this the second road-car after the Enzo not to be offered with Ferrari's classic gated manual.
[edit] Handling

The car's suspension will feature double wishbones at the front and a multi-link set-up at the rear, coupled with E-Diff and F1-Trac traction control systems, designed to improve the car's cornering and longitudinal acceleration by 32% compared to its predecessors.[4]

The brakes include a prefill function whereby the pistons in the calipers move the pads into contact with the discs on lift off to minimise delay in the brakes being applied.[2] This combined with the ABS has reduced 100–0 km/h (62-0 mph) braking distance to 32.5 metres (107 ft).[6]

The adaptive magnetorheological dampers were co-developed with Delphi.

The 458 Italia will use Bridgestone Potenza S001 tires.[7]
[edit] Performance

Ferrari's official 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is 3.35 seconds, while top speed is over 325 km/h (202 mph), with a fuel consumption in combined cycle (ECE+EUDC) 13.7 L/100 km (20.6 mpg-imp; 17.2 mpg-US) while producing 320g/km of CO2.[8]
[edit] Design
The black winglet deforms at high speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag.

The body was designed by Pininfarina, as with all recent Ferrari models. The car’s exterior styling and features were designed for aerodynamic efficiency, producing a downforce of 140 kg at 124 miles per hour (200 km/h).[4] In particular, the front grille features deformable winglets that lower at high speeds, in order to offer reduced drag.[9] The car's interior was designed using input from former Ferrari Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher, including a new steering wheel design which incorporates many features and controls as opposed to them being on the dashboard, similar to racing car designs.[4]

According to British car magazine AutoCar, the 458 Italia's design has drawn inspiration from the Enzo Ferrari and its Mille Chili concept car.[10] It has been designed to be Ferrari's sportiest V8-engined car, to distinguish itself from the recently launched Ferrari California.[10]

The 458 was also reviewed on 15th season of Top Gear, where it received critical acclaim for its styling and performance. In a drag race against a Ferrari F430, it won by a considerable margin. The car also lapped the Top Gear test track in 1:19.1, just 0.1 seconds slower than the Ferrari Enzo.
[edit] 458 Challenge

The 458 Challenge was presented at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting on 14 July 2010. Ferrari say their newest Challenge racer can lap the Fiorano test track in 1:16.5, which is two seconds faster than its F430 Challenge predecessor and only .2 second slower than the Ferrari FXX.[11][12]
