The 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Spider and 458 continue to exhibit some of the best handling and performance available. The Ferrari 458 Italia is approaching its fifth year on the market, but is, however, seems every inch the supercar modern master. The driving experience is placed among the best speakers ever built. Reflecting this nose-representation of the original design of the 458 Italia, Ferrari has offered little in the way of changes or modifications based on the Italy and team play. In 2011, the convertible version, the 458 Spider, joined the range; and in 2013, the Ferrari 458 Italia was added to the lineup. The 2014 Ferrari 458 Italiaemphasizes the importance of performance by trimming weight and adjust the outside for increased aerodynamic efficiency while tuning suspension, the control electronics and tire grip for even more impressive ability to track-day.
2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Interior
Both coupe and convertible models of the 458 share a low front end and aggressive headlights futuristic looking, a tall, burnt rear, giving the car a muscular stance and proportions of central motor clean distilling the essence of a Ferrari modern performance car. 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia’s interior is modern and luxurious in his eyes, but not avant garde or flashy. The sound of the engine mid-ships is simply glorious. Just a thin divider separates the engine compartment, and that means there’s a symphony of mechanical excellence every time you light up and plant your foot. The presence engine transforms the car quite soft to race-bred machine emotion with just a quick stab of the gas crises.

A total of 400 foot-pounds of torque is available, with 80 percent of the 3,250 RPM faucet. But numbers do not tell the whole story of V-8 Italy.

The coupe hits, 60 mph from a stop in just 3.4 seconds, and performs at a maximum speed of 202 mph. Aerodynamics little less slick Spider-climax to 198 mph. Both cars use the same seven Getrag gearbox with double clutch speeds, and both receive gas mileage around the mark of 12 mpg city and 18 mpg on the highway.
The handling, however, is where the 458 really shines. The balance and grip are evident both in large quantities, no impregnating stability is often found in high-power, the mid-engine cars.
