Ferrari 458 Scuderia

Technological innovation, performance, visionary styling and the sheer thrill of driving form together a deadly cocktail that makes Ferrari one of the most wanted or at least the most dreamt of the cars. The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the most successful vehicles in the Italian’s brand fleet. It was introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. With a leap in time but at the same place, the Frankfurt Motor Show, a new version of the 458 Italia will be presented. It is called the Ferrari 458 Scuderia.

The Ferrari 458 Scuderia has a difficult job to accomplish. It has to set higher standards for the supercar segment. And it will probably succeed if we consider the history and the skillful people at Ferrari. It is expected for the vehicle to have an aerodynamic body kit containing a new front bumper, some larger air intakes and carbon fiber elements on the rear diffuser.

The Ferrari 458 Scuderia will be powered by the same 4.5-liter V8 engine as its predecessor, except that the new car will benefit of an optimized ECU and a sports exhaust system which will enable the model to have 600 HP (441 kW). Thanks to the aerodynamic kit, the new 458 will weight just 1280 kg (2,822 lbs). All these put together will allow the supercar to be faster than the 458 Italia. But there is only a short time left until Frankfurt Auto Show, and all the details are going to be revealed then.
