The 458's base price hovers right around $230,000, which places it among the most expensive performance cars available in North America. The Lamborghini Gallardo and Porsche S Turbo may compete in terms of performance, style and price, but the Ferrari 458 brings extensive racing heritage and the newest in fuel-efficiency technology. A multi-displacement system, active aerodynamics and a clever alternator that only charges the battery when the engine is not under load are among the technologies Ferrari has employed to increase vehicle efficiency. The 458 is an extremely capable track-ready car, but it also features a luxurious leather interior with all of today's necessary technologies, which can be driven comfortably to work. With the addition of the 458 Spider, with its clever retractable hardtop, sunshine-lovers now have an Italia to call their own.
The 458 Carries over into 2014 unchanged.
Power in the 458 comes from a 4.5L V8 engine mounted mid-ship, and makes an impressive 570 horsepower and 398 lb-feet of torque. It's only available with a 7-speed double-clutch transmission, connected to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. The suspension is of the active, self-leveling variety.
