The 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia is a mid-engined berlinetta produced by Ferrari as the successor to the Ferrari F430. It was officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and made its debut in Forza Motorsport 3. It has since returned for all subsequent titles, even becoming the hero car of Forza Motorsport 4. In 2015, the Ferrari 488 GTB, successor to the 458 Italia, was released.

Description Edit

Ferrari’s entry-level offering is anything but. With a V8 screaming right behind your head delivering an awe-inspiring 562 horsepower, for any other company the 458 Italia would be the flagship sportscar. Instead, the Italia is a driver’s ultimate fantasy, combining stunning Pininfarina lines with nearly perfect driving dynamics. It looks the part too, with aggressive headlights, sculpted flanks, and menacing triple exhausts exiting at the center of the functional rear air diffuser. Step inside and slide behind the wheel and contemplate the masterpiece that is the cockpit—everything you need is within reach in a setting that is more like a fighter jet than a mere car. Underneath the aerodynamically optimized skin is a vast array of high technology that allows the driver to use all that power with surgical precision. The high-revving V8 is the real highlight, managing to pull a nearly unbelievable amount of power out of just 4.5 liters by using direct-injection, high compression, and precisely balanced internal components. Keeping the engine in the powerband is made simple with the dual-clutch F1-inspired 7-speed transmission, which seamlessly ratchets off shifts without interrupting the delivery of ample torque. With the exceedingly stiff bonded aluminum chassis and an amazingly low drag coefficient, the Italia’s top speed exceeds 202 miles per hour.

Driving Characteristics Edit

The Ferrari 458 Italia is a high-revving V8-engined supercar, capable of a redline of 9,000 rpm. The 458 Italia boasts quick acceleration off the line (0-60 mph in 3 seconds), grippy handling at corners, decent braking performance, and high top speeds exceeding its claimed top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). While not the best handling car in its class, the 458 Italia is still a solid performer. Being equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the 458 Italia can stay in the powerband longer than most cars.

In games up to Forza Horizon, the 458 Italia could not do 0-60 mph within 3 seconds or less, but had a very high top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h). As of Forza Motorsport 5, the 458 Italia is now capable of doing sub-7 second runs to 100 mph (161 km/h), as well as being able to corner more efficiently. In Forza Horizon 3, the 458 Italia's top speed is almost the same as its Forza Motorsport 4 rendition: 217 mph (349 km/h).
