The Ferrari 458 Italia (Type F142) is a mid-engine sports car produced by Ferrari. The 458 is the successor of the F430, and was first officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was succeeded by the 488 GTB (Gran Turismo Berlinetta), which was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It was made by hand at Ferrari headquarters in Maranello, Italy.
In Ferrari’s first official announcement of the car, the 458 was described as the successor to the F430 but arising from an entirely new design, incorporating technologies developed from the company’s experience in Formula One.
The body computer system was developed by Magneti Marelli.
The 458 is powered by a 4,497 cc (4.5 L; 274.4 cu in) engine of the “Ferrari/Maserati” F136 V8 family, generating a power output of 570 PS (419 kW; 562 hp) at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 540 N⋅m (398 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm with 80 percent of torque available at 3,250 rpm. The engine features direct fuel injection, a first for Ferrari mid-engine setups in its road cars.
