Those interested in snagging the F430-replacing Ferrari 458 Italia will be pleased to hear the V8-powered stallion is going on sale in Europe for a currency-and-VAT-adjusted $240,000 before options. Full list, translated and un-translated, below.
Of course, by the time you add any features and include taxes, fees, guzzler tax, and the like, it climbs to over $250K, which is about where the current F430 tops out. For all that dough you'll get the cache of Ferrari ownership as well as a rocking 4.5-liter direct-injection V8 pumping out 562 HP with a top speed of 202 MPH and a 0-to-60 MPH run under 3.4 seconds. It's like shopping at Big Lots! Here's the full price list in both untranslated and forum-translated form:
Look on the bright side, at least we don't have to pay VAT here, right? What's got us curious is the "Racing livery" option. What the hell is that?
