Ferrari proudly showcased the 458 Italia to the British crowd at the Good Wood Festival of Speed and it became an instant hit among the crowd. The Italia is a beautiful work of engineering and exterior designing and was eagerly awaited to be unveiled.
Apart from the 458 Italia, Ferrari also unveiled the California 30. Both cars are based on Ferrari’s latest technology and both are superb, in all aspects. The 458 Italia is a mid engine, two seat vehicle and the car has an aluminum body frame, hence keeping the weight in check.
While it’s true that every Ferrari is innovative by definition, it’s equally true that in the course of the Prancing Horse’s history, certain cars have marked a genuine departure from the current range. This is very much the case with the Ferrari 458 Italia, which is a massive leap forward from the company’s previous mid-rear engined sports cars.
The new model is a synthesis of style, creative flair, passion and cutting-edge technology, characteristics for which Italy as a nation is well-known. For this reason Ferrari chose to add the name of its homeland to the traditional figure representing the displacement and number of cylinders.
