2010 Ferrari 458 Italy: Ferrari more 'fast as ever
Published on July 28th, 2009 by Maurizio Manna

Ferrari 458 Italy was unveiled this morning by the Maranello company. With a top speed of 325 km / h and a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in under 3.5 seconds is Ferrari's most 'fast ever built. The power output was 570 hp at 9000 rpm, evolve from an advanced engine is mated to a new seven-speed gearbox with double clutch. First of all I want to clarify that I do not want the usual round of festivities spoiled ready to criticize everything and everyone, I just cheer Ferrari it! ...I want to make one criticism is this: If he were still alive the great Pininfarina, certainly would not put that black grille in front of the nose of the red ...However everything else goes well, the car and pretty and I really like.It is not true what was said above, that is the fastest ever built.The fastest and the Enzo with more than 360 km / h Orai.Then there is the F50 and the 599 with 330 km / h.
Like all Ferraris, the new name refers to the engine, in this case a 4.5 liters V8. It 'been called "Italy" to give prestige to our country.
The new Ferrari 458 Italy is much more 'than just a redesign of the F430 sporting a new engine, new chassis and a new technology for the suspension. It was also made extensive use of materials "exotic" such as magnesium and carbon fiber to obtain an optimum weight reduction.
The design is completely new. Designed by Pininfarina, the car stands out for the new LED headlights and a front grille black.
Reduce aerodynamic drag is a priority of the project. The large air intakes at the front and sides of the car body to the powerful V8 engine air flow, but more 'important, head to the bottom in a series of venturi tubes.
The effect is that of a car attached to soil at 200 km / h already generates 140 pounds of downforce.
Up front are also two mobile wings hidden in the vents. A solution that is part of the package of active aerodynamics of the car that helps reduce drag at high speeds.
Rear traction is obviously controlled by the electronic differential and the Ferrari F1-Trac traction control. The brakes are carbon-ceramic. Ferrari 458 Italy is also characterized by a new approach to driving with the steering wheel and dashboard of the new design, the result of experience coming from the races. Also in this area of development was vital the contribution of Michael Schumacher's well established that once again was involved from the beginning of the project.
The latter is characterized by three tailpipes posts in a row. The sound, according to rumors, has been modeled to mimic that of a Formula 1 car.
This new Ferrari is also an important step towards the goal of reducing emissions. Despite the significant increase in power of the new engine compared to the previous V8, the 458 is approved by Italy consumption cycle ECE + EUDC of 13.7 l/100 km and CO2 emission figure of 320 g / km, best value in the market.
