Arriving June 2017
The exciting Ferrari 458 Italia supercar from Sportscarhire looks stunning in traditional Rosso Corsa with Crema interior. The naturally-aspirated powerful Ferrari engine is tuneful even when cruising, and of course Ferrari make the best-sounding engine in the world when howling under acceleration, with instant gearchanges from the paddles of the very advanced semi-auto gearbox.
The interior is a wonderful place to be whether cruising or travelling quickly, with high quality leather and artistic designs all around you, comfortable but supportive seats and adjustable dampers for smooth or bumpy roads. The usual conveniences are fitted of course, including sat nav, reversing camera and high quality audio.
The mid-engined V8 Ferrari 458 Italia delivers an exciting 562 bhp at 9000rpm and a top speed beyond 200 mph, and encompasses much of the technology and lessons Ferrari has learned from Formula 1 racing. It feels very agile, with steering taking just 2 turns lock to lock. Double wishbone suspension at the front and a multi-link set-up with a sophisticated electronic diff at the rear assures responsive and grippy handling, making cornering an absolute pleasure. Although very quick on track, Ferrari did not forget this was a road car and has incorporated a smooth ride and adjustable settings. The bodywork is designed for aerodynamic efficiency too, with underbody aero keeping the lines clean, and dynamic front flaps that alter the aero at speed increasing cooling and grip. It’s a world-beating Ferrari with many awards from the motoring press that needs to be experienced by every enthusiastic driver!
