The Ferrari 458 Italia supercar is yours for an unforgettable weekend’s experience for just £1300 this season!
The aero-sculpted bodywork is jaw-droppingly attractive, and instantly recognisable as a Ferrari in the traditional Rosso Corsa colour with Nero black leather and Rosso red carpeting. Daytona electric leather sports seats are comfortable and give a full range of adjustment. The naturally-aspirated flexible but very powerful Ferrari engine sounds tuneful even when cruising, and of course one of the best-sounding engines in the world when howling under acceleration, with instant gearchanges in 100 milliseconds from the paddles of the very advanced semi-automatic 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 parking sensors and high quality audio. Ours is a low-mileage one-owner car, with a black roof which enhances the design.
The mid-engined V8 Ferrari 458 Italia delivers an exhilarating 562 bhp at 9000rpm which can take this lightweight Ferrari on to 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 from the adjustable settings, which independently control gear shifts, stability and suspension. The bodywork is designed for high aerodynamic efficiency, 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!
