Cadillac would like to remind you that the magnetorheteroeologicalicious dampers on the Ferrari 458 Italia were Caddy's first. What it fails to mention is the system wasn't developed entirely by GM (Delphi gets some credit) and the first vehicle they used it on was the 2002 Cadillac Seville STS and not the CTS-V. Oh…
What's the next best thing to owning a Ferrari 458 Italia? Forget it, you can't afford her. But a few things down from that is this: a replica 458 Italia steering wheel for XBox.
You've seen the new Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, now watch its retractable roof open, with epic orchestral accompaniment. Simplicity is sexiness: the cover opens; the roof rotates, paddle-wheel-style, into place, and the cover comes down. All that's missing is a mustache and the Magnum PI theme music.
Like clockwork, the boys in Maranello are releasing the Ferrari 458 Spider in time for a Frankfurt Auto Show debut later this year. And like clockwork, someone's leaked what they say are photos of the well-sculpted red convertible early.
Your fancy dual-clutch seven-speed transmission may let you make shifts faster than hummingbird farts, Mr. Ferrari 458 Italia driver, but we're guessing you wouldn't accidentally start a drag race in reverse if you had a classic gated shifter and embarrassed yourself in front of all these people and the Internet.
The Rolex Grand Am series shares an owner with NASCAR, but does it follow the same raucous playbook? Perhaps, considering Ferrari's new Grand Am-prepped 458 GT3's got "greater lateral protection" for more safety in "a series in which collisions are rather more frequent." Oh, mi scusi, signore, but — how you say —…
Looks like that Ferrari Club Italia Troféo held at Vallelunga circuit near Rome this past weekend wasn't just the last roundup for a Ferrari 599 GTO. Another driver went pear-shaped on a decreasing-radius turn off a high-speed straight, sliding his 458 Italia into a tire wall. Tis but a scratch!
Remember when you begged your dad to let you take out the family hauler the second you got your learner's permit. Remember imagining pretending that big Buick was a sleek, Italian exotic. This kid doesn't have to pretend. That "L" on the Ferrari 458 Italia is how Britain signifies a learner driver. Which means the…
Discontent with just one assault on visual acuity, Mansory also unleashed the Siracusa, which wraps the slightly-tweaked guts of a Ferrari 458 Italia in a carbon-fiber puff pastry painted a color I call radioactive urine. What has been seen cannot be unseen.
A Ford truck achieved revenge for the Italians naming their new F1 car the Ferrari F150. Sadly, this 458 Italia only traversed 500 miles and therefore never had the chance to burn to the ground before being violently struck.
It's been a few months since Ferrari recalled its 458 Italia to fix a defect that led to the vehicles catching fire. Which is why there's fresh interest after a purportedly "fixed" 458 caught fire in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
The crew from 'Merican Top Gear rolled into SEMA this morning with a quintet of supercabs. We hear a certain Ray Wert might drive one, but we're not sure if we can tell anyone. So, um, keep it to yourself...
What can we tell you after a few hours in a Chevrolet Volt? It's possible to get 55.4 miles of all-electric range driving like the accelerator's hitched to a land mine. Also, Ferrari 458 Italia owners lack patience. More tomorrow.
