Since it’s unveiling, the Ferrari 458 Italia has constantly received important recognitions all over the world, winning over thirty-five international awards up to date. Automotive critics acclaimed the 458 Italia in Europe, Far East and the United States, where the 458 coupe has been named “World Performance Car of the Year” and “Car of the Year” by Robb Report. Other significant acknowledgments came from Motor Trend which defines the 458 Italia “2011 Best Driver’s Car” and was also voted “Best Performance Engine” and “Best Engine above 4 liters” at the recent International Engine of the Year Awards.

Several innovations & technological enhancements allowed the new Ferrari 458 Italia to achieve such appreciations by critics and customers all over the world.

The new Prancing Horse V8 coupe features the first 4499 cc V8 direct injection mid-rear mounted engine. The 458 Italia engine has been completely been redesigned and reaches a maximum of 9,000 rpm, a max power ratio of 570 HP and an outstanding 127 CV/liter power output which is another benchmark for a naturally-aspirated production engine. Formula One also played a crucial role in the design of the new engine allowing to optimized performances and fuel consumption objectives.

The seven-speed F1 dual clutch transmission secures the 458 Italia superior performances whilst providing faster yet smoother gear changes even at full throttle. The gear shifting time is equal to zero, thus there is no interruption of engine torque to the driven wheels. The 458 Italia provides further reduced response time compared to the California gearbox as well as provides sportier gear ratios to match the power and torque of the new V8 Coupe.

Superior handling is secured by the enhanced suspensions featuring twin wishbones in the front and multi-link set up in the rear.

Outstanding braking performances in the 458 Italia are guaranteed by the Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and an optimized Bosch control logic. Braking response times are reduced, the braking torque control is improved and vehicle stability is enhanced thanks to the high-performance ABS and E-Diff 3.

The new-designed chassis in aluminum incorporates manufacturing and bonding techniques derived by the aerospace industry. Such innovative manufacturing processes granted the 458 Italia a lighter weight, with consequential benefits to performances and handling.

Like every Ferrari, the 458 Italia is the result of an uncompromising design approach integrating style and aerodynamics functionalities. In the last V8 coupe addition to the Prancing Horse fleet, Pininfarina featured aerodynamic and compact lines to achieve the top performance efficiency required by Maranello Engineers.
