Dreary, rainy weather isn’t always bad, especially when hundreds of Italian horses decide to pose in it. Use it as a metaphor for your week ahead—sure, Monday morning is a dreary time, but there’s always something beautiful waiting in the rain. (That was overly poetic, but hey. It’s fine.)
Japanese-American tuner Liberty Walk was proudly displaying their wide-body Ferrari 458 at some sort of SEMA event overnight when the driver of a tuned Jeep proudly displayed what Jeeps are best at: Crashing into stuff. Everyone then freaked out.
"Amazing awfulness" is how our sister site io9 described the pilot episode of CBS' new show Scorpion, which is ostensibly about a team of hackers who help the Department of Homeland Security. (At least it's not the NSA.) But the pilot's amazingly awful chase scene is even dumber than we all realized.
Listen: Sometimes you gotta kidnap people. It's just how things are. Don't question it. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration doesn't like that people can be trapped in trunks, and their latest target is the Ferrari 458 Italia.
Admittedly, the words "Ferrari" and "V6" don't really go hand-in-hand, unless we're talking about the old Dino sports cars or sick 3VZ-FE-swapped MR2s with body kits to make them look like F355s.

No one can put wraps on their cars anymore. That trend is officially over now. Canadian dance music producer Deadmau5 just dropped the mic on car wrapping for good with his wonderful Ferrari 458 Italia Nyan Cat wrap. Nothing can top this supreme auto troll.
Okay, hypocrisy time. After I called out that Pink Dolphin Ferrari 458 Italia as the worst Ferrari paint job ever, you might think I also hate that EDM producer Deadmau5 wants to wrap his 458 in Nyan Cat livery. Except I don't because this is AMAZING.
We've been working on a small project this year with a not-so-small friend. Come back Thursday for the first installment.
Lots of people like to rag on the looks of modern Ferraris, but I'm a pretty big fan of the 458 Italia. It's sexy, aggressive and modern — until you paint it up like the background from an early 90s elementary school portrait, that is. I didn't think you could get worse than the 458 Speciale, but here we are.
Amazingly, the Ferrari 458 Italia has been around since 2009 now, but I'm still not sick of looking at it. Alex Goy from XCAR says it's the most beautiful Ferrari to come along in years; I fully agree.
The maxim "If you want something done right you should do it yourself" usually does not apply to car cleaning, but the owner of this Ferrari 458 Italia who loaned their precious Italian sports car to mobile car cleaning service probably regrets outsourcing that particular job given what's left of the car.
You guys ever gotten presents from a car company after you wrecked one of their cars? No? Weird, me either. I guess that only happens for DJ Afrojack.
This is Nick van de Wall. He is a DJ and a music producer from the Netherlands. He goes by the name of Afrojack. This is his crashed Ferrari 458 Italia. And this is the life lesson he learned today.
Most Ferraris make the news for catching on fire.
