Ferrari 458 Latest In Pakistan

The 458 Italia is the most recent incarnation of the mid-rear engined berlinetta and will be unveiled at the then Frankfurt Motor Show

Maranello, July 28th 2009 – While it's right that all Ferrari is innovative by meaning, it's just as right that in the course of the Prancing Horse's history, certain cars have marked a genuine departure as of the current range. This is awfully a lot the case by means of the Ferrari 458 Italia, which is a massive leap forward as of the company's previous mid-rear engined sports cars.

The latest model is a synthesis of fashion, imaginative flair, passion and cutting-edge expertise, characteristics for which Italy as a nation is well-known. For this motivation Ferrari chose to add the name of its homeland to the traditional figure representing the displacement and number of cylinders.

The Ferrari 458 Italia is a totally latest car as of all points of view: engine, propose, aerodynamics, handling, instrumentation and ergonomics, only to name a some.

A two-seater berlinetta, the Ferrari 458 Italia, as is then conventional for all Ferrari's road-going cars, benefits hugely from the company's Formula 1 experience. This is particularly evident in the speed and precision by resources of which the car respond to driver inputs and in the attention focused on reducing internal friction in the engine for lower fuel consumption than the F430, despite the fact that both generally displacement and power have increased. However, Ferrari's track experience makes its presence felt in the 458 Italia not only in terms of pure technological transfer but also on a extra emotional level, for the reason that of the strong emphasis on create an about symbiotic association among driver and car. The 458 Italia features an innovative driving environment with a new kind of steering wheel and dashboard that is the direct result of racing practice. Once more input as of Michael Schumacher - who was involved from the especially start of the 458 Italia project - played an invaluable part.

The Ferrari 458 Italia's Pininfarina propose provide further evidence of the total departure as of the past that this latest car hails. The Ferrari 458 Italia has a compressed, aerodynamic shape, underscoring the concepts of simplicity, efficiency and lightness that inspired the project. As by means of all Ferrari, the car's style has been especially heavily influenced by the requirements for aerodynamic efficiency, as can be seen from the downforce of 140 kg at 200km/h generated by the new model. The front features a single opening for the front grille and side air intakes, with aerodynamic sections and profiles designed to direct air to the coolant radiators and the latest flat underbody. The nose too sports small aeroelastic winglets which generate downforce and, as speed rises, deform to reduce the division of the radiator inlets and cut drag.

The new 4499 cc V8 is the first Ferrari direct injection engine to be mid-rear mounted. It has a very low piston compression height typical of racing engines which contributed to achieving its compression ratio of 12.5:1. Equipped with the traditional flat-plane crankshaft, the engine delivers 570 CV at 9000 rpm and, by means of an outstanding power output of 127 CV/litre, sets a new benchmark not only for the whole Ferrari range and the history of company, but also for the entire market segment. Maximum torque is 540 Nm at 6000 rpm, over 80 per cent of which is available from 3250 rpm. Specific torque is a record 120 Nm/litre. However, what is actually extraordinary is the amount of torque available while still maintaining top levels of supremacy at low revs.

The car's soundtrack is also typical Ferrari, by means of a stimulating, powerful growl emerging as of the engine before it channels through to the exhaust's three rear tailpipes.

The 458 Italia is equipped by means of the seven-speed dual-clutch show which increases performance whilst providing very smooth shifts even at full throttle. The engineers have developed specific, sportier gear ratios to match the power and torque curves of the new V8, guaranteeing high torque even at lower engine speeds and allowing the most wanted car to reach its upper limit speed in up gear.

This new Ferrari is also a chief leap forward as it comes to cutting emissions. Despite the fact that the new engine is significantly more powerful than the V8s that preceded it, the Ferrari 458 Italia produces just 320 g/km of CO2 and fuel consumption is 13.7 l/100 km (combined cycle), the best in the entire segment.

The engineers also focused on weight reduction during the propose phase for similar reason. Consequently, the Ferrari 458 Italia has a dry weight of 1380 kg with a power-to-weight ratio of 2.42 kg/CV. Weight distribution is also optimal with 58 per cent more the rear axle. The result of the engineers' endeavours can be summed up in to two simple statistics which together perfectly encapsulate the Ferrari 458 Italia's exceptional performance: 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 3.4 seconds and a upper limit speed in excess of 325 km/h.

For the latest chassis, once more in aluminium, Maranello's engineers incorporated various types of advanced alloys along with aerospace industry-derived manufacturing and bonding techniques.

With regard to vehicle dynamics, the Ferrari 458 Italia's postponement features twin wishbones at the frontage and a multi-link set-up at the rear tuned for maximum road holding and superlative handling. Along by means of an extra direct steering ratio, the 458 Italia thus offers extremely rapid turn-in and body control whilst maintaining superior ride relieve.

The integration of the E-Diff and F1-Trac (now controlled by the same ECU) and their respective mappings is even greater, resulting in a 32 per cent increase in longitudinal acceleration out of corners compare to previous models. The evolution of the manage logic, by means of still more rapidly and more accurate calculation of levels of grip, ensures even greater road holding, better handling and ease of control on the bound.

The same ECU also governs the high-performance ABS, providing even more precise control over the logic threshold and greater efficiency. The brakes also feature a profile occupation whereby the pistons in the calipers’ move the pads into contact with the discs on lift off to minimize delay in the brakes being applied. This combined by means of the ABS has cut the 100-0 km/h braking distance to a mere 32.5 meters.

The Ferrari 458 Italia's interior is another area of the car that exalts its sporty character. The driver is welcomed by a new layout and a revolutionary ergonomic interface where the main controls are all clustered on the steering wheel.

With the Ferrari 458 Italia, Maranello has brought a highly distinctive new car to its 8-cylinder range. The company now offers two models that share a common, race-derived DNA, both exceptionally sporty and fun to drive in true Ferrari tradition, but aimed at two very special kinds of client. While the Ferrari California was created for owners requiring a more versatile sports car by means of a practical edge, the 458 Italia is designed for owners for whom the priority is uncompromising on-road performance by means of occasional track day capability, but who still demand a car that is useable in day-to-day driving like all Ferrari's modern models.
