of the 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia. Base trim shown.
This new mid-engine two-seater is radical looking no matter which angle you view it from. From the front, the trailing headlight LEDs and strange slits in the bodywork are completely original and quite outrageous. While they're unique looking, they still speak to the Ferrari faithful.
Far more provocative, however, is the rear and its voluptuous fender. The profile is probably the shot that's most distressing to Ferrari fans because the back half looks enormous compared to the car's hood.
Of course, it's still a Ferrari and that means it can perform as well as strain gawkers' necks. The V-8 engine is good for 570 horsepower and a zero-to-62 time of 3.4 seconds, which is about as fast as anyone can expect to go in a car today that doesn't shoot flames out the back. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is controlled only by paddle shifters on the racing-inspired steering wheel, and dual electronic gauges frame a center tachometer, which says this is a serious performance machine.
Because the engine sits behind the seats the weight is balanced 42/58 front to rear, which should make for fun days at the track.
