Ferrari 458 Italia

If we were to rate the most beautiful sports car born in 2009, we will definitely vote for the Ferrari 458 Italia, the successor to the Ferrari F430. The Ferrari 458 Italia in automobile world is like Angelina Jolie to entertainment world, sexy, powerful, and beautiful. We have shouted a BIG “WOW!” during its first debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Today, we shouted twice “WOW and WOW!” while we spotted a sexy red 458 Italia sitting silently and calmly in Pavilion. We were given the chance to take a few shots of this super exotic sports car and good things should be shared.

Ferrari 458 Italia

The 458 Italia features a direct-injected 4.5 L V8 engine that delivers 562 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque at 9,000 rpm. At 9,000 rpm, it is unquestionably will make the driver scream and shout non-stop in the car. 80% of the torque is available at 3,250 rpm. What about the speed from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph)? It takes only 3.4 seconds. Most people are unable to wear a pant in that amount of time.

It was sitting there without a sound, but it attracted a bit crowd to look at it, capture its picture, and enjoy looking at it. How many people actually know it is capable of reaching 325km/h when it starts to talk?

The black winglet you can see from the picture above can be deformed at high speeds to create more downforce and also to direct more air towards the air intake. The faster the car goes the more air it gets. Together with the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the fuel consumption of the car is recorded at 17.1 mpg (7.3 km/l). Again, this is a Ferrari!
