If you are a car lover, the FERRARI 458 ITALY will ring a bell with Pininfarina, as the central engine on the rear (among other things) has been designed exclusively for this model by the automobile and high-speed train design firm. Ranked as the best car of the year in 2010, it has a naturally aspirated direct injection gasoline engine with 8 cylinders in V, mounted in the rear-central position with 4.5 liters of displacement and 578 hp with a torque of 540 Nm at 6000 rpm, designed to reach speeds of up to 9000 rpm .
How does it sound? If you listen to it you will understand, this real-life rocket has a seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox, so fast that there is no shift between gears and no interruption of torque to the wheels. The 458 Italia has a top speed of 325 km/h. If all this didn't surprise you, its acceleration in 3.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h will surely do it. But don't worry, to stop this rampant horse the 458 Italia has a Brembo carboceramic brake system, with 398x233x36mm discs and six-piston aluminum caliper for the front.
Its glued (not welded) aluminum chassis was designed by the American factory "Alcoa", the third largest producer of aluminum in the world, achieving a dry weight of 1380kg distributed 42% for the front and 58% for the rear.
The consumption according to the technical sheet is 13.3 liters at 100km, but if you step on it this figure is likely to shoot at the same speed of acceleration of this projectile with wheels.
