The Ferrari 458 Italia – a revolutionary car that will change the way we look at sports cars.
There is a new car that will make us throw everything we know about sports cars out the window.
In September, a car that is said to be the fastest sports car in the world will finally be unveiled at a car show in Frankfurt. This is the Ferrari 458 Italia.
It’s a two-seater berlinetta that effectively fuses creativity, style, and advanced technology into a beautiful package that will revolutionize the image of all cars.
It’s an entirely new and innovative car from every angle. Everything is different and original from the handling to the design and even ergonomics to provide comfort for the driver.
Its style is smooth and sleek and incorporates lightness and aerodynamic efficiency to its design. Among the many developments are the tiny winglets located at the nose that generates down force, which decreases the radiator’s section of inlets and cuts the drag when it accelerates.
This nice sports car has a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that amplifies its performance. Even at full throttle, the Ferrari 458 Italia manages to offer exceptionally smooth shifts. It boasts of a 4.5-liter V8 engine and a speed of 202 mph. The tremendously powerful engine also has extremely high specific outputs and a very high torque that allows the car to attain its utmost speed in maximum gear. The engine contains small piston skirts and internal parts that are almost weightless for a high-compression ratio and low-rotation inertia. It is said to tear out 570 hp at an unbelievable rpm of 9,000. Clearly, the Ferrari 458 Italia is tremendously fast that claims to dash out to 62 mph in no more than three seconds.
When it comes to superlative handling, the car’s vehicle dynamics are completely superb with its multi-link setup at the rear and twin wishbones at the front. The Ferrari’s steering ratio has greatly improved and has become more direct for a swift turn-in.
Its interior boasts of a new layout and highly innovative interface wherein all the main controls are on the steering wheel.
But above all, the rate of fuel consumption is only 13.7 liters per 100 km with an emission rate of 320 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer, making it environment-friendly despite its power.
So if you’re looking for cool sports cars, attend the Frankfurt Motor Show and marvel at the Ferrari 458 Italia that will change the way we look about fast sports cars.
