Hi everyone! Today, I would like to write about a well known Transformers character. Mirage. Or in other words, the Ferrari 458 Italia. A lot of people saw that great movie, so I thought of providing some information that proves that this car isn’t just a pretty face from Hollywood. Now, if you’re a car enthusiast like me, you probably know that since the 458 came out, the big question was “Is it better than the F430?” In my opinion think it’s the most beautiful and quite simply the best Ferrari ever! And I think that many people agree with me. It’s not a surprise that it won over 30 international awards, including “Best Performance Engine” and “Best Engine Above 4 Litres”, and BBC Top Gear’s “Supercar of the Year” and “Car of the Year Awards”.
Personally I think that the Ferrari F430 is an amazing car. But after I saw Top Gear’s episode on the Italia and checked some information on the Wikipedia, I immediately changed my definition of amazing. I think, and so does a lot of people, that the Ferrari 458 Italia replaces the F430. It’s not only better looking than the F430, but it has a better engine, thus faster in every single way, better handling and aerodynamics thanks to its special designed body. It does cost more than the F430, and it does have an idiotic dashboard which doesn’t show you how fast you’re going, but who cares if this car destroys and humiliates the F430 and a lot of cars in its class! Plus, you can have huge amount of fun in this car! Oh, and it only has a trunk big enough for a sandwich….but I don’t think that anyone would use this terrific car for shopping! 😉
The 458’s mid-engine is a 4.5 L V8 with 562 hp. It has a dual-clutch 7 speed gearbox similar to the Ferrari California. This Ferrari’s performance is staggering! It goes from naught to a 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and its top speed is over 325 km/h! But Road & Track recorded a 0-100 in 3 seconds flat!!! I think that is just amazing! So I think that all this information about the 458 answers the big question. 🙂
I still think that the F430 is a great car. But the 458….is…how do I say? If the F430 is Tony Stark, than the 458 is Iron Man! Or….It’s Brad Pitt with Angelina Jolie face.
And if I still didn’t convince you, check out the picture below.
So this is my opinion on the Ferrari 458 Italia, and I’m very interested in your opinion as well! Just to see if anyone actually likes the F430 better than the 458. 😉 And finally, I would like to ask you to leave a request next to your comment, as to which car should I review next time. 🙂 Thanks!
