The Ferrari 458 Italia has made its world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. The fastest ‘prancing horse’ ever built was introduced by Luca di Montezemolo, Ferrari’s Chairman and Michael Schumacher, Formula 1 Champion. Schumacher’s contribution, right from the early stages of the project, lead to the supercar presented today.
Just to give some inside we created a short recap. The new 4,499cc V8 engine has a F1 dual-clutch gearbox and a 1,380kg dry weight. The weight-to-power ratio is 2.42kg per hp. A sprint from 0 to 100km/h in under 3.4 seconds is possible and it will hit a maximum speed of over 325km/h. More information about the Ferrari 458 Italia can be found in our official 458 Italia release article.
