Ferrari 458 Italia (2009)
Unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 458 Italia sports a classic mid-engined V8 berlinetta or ‘little saloon’ layout. Mid-engined cars have traditionally been hailed as a ‘softer’ Ferrari than the rear-mounted engine cars, but this 458 incarceration is anything but. The 4.5 litre, naturally aspirated direct injection V8 engine is capable of nearly 570 brake horse power and boasts a top speed of 202mph. Matt Prior of Autocar, following a road test of the 458 claimed that it lay at the top of the three best handling mid-engined road cars available in that year, an accolade that is all the more impressive given the raw performance of this prancing horse. With a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds, this iconic Ferrari with its sophisticated dual-clutch transmission, paved the way for a number of later road and track variations all based on the success of this impressive mid-engined example.
