A badge that evokes performance, speed and handling prowess is the prancing horse on a car. Ferrari’s logo is an inspiration from a WW1 fighter ace named Francesco Baracca when he used to paint it on his airplane for good luck. Today the black prancing horse on a yellow background is a badge that is as legendary as a brand can become. When Ferrari released the Ferrari 458 Italia, it was met with instant approval and awards. The 458 won “Car of the Year 2009” and “Supercar of the Year”. This rear-mid engine machine is a car to behold, and here’s your lucky chance to purchase one. We have a 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia Coupe for grabs in our inventory from Texas with just 14,700 miles on the odometer. It comes with the original Ferrari car cover, and a Ferrari-branded trickle charger to keep the battery topped-up when not in use for long periods.
The 458 Italia’s design speaks sophistication, as it was designed by Donato Coco and renowned Italian design house Pininfarina. This gorgeous 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia Coupe is dressed in a Rosso Scuderia color, and it sits on a set of OEM Ferrari gunmetal 5-spoke wheels. Maximum protection is enhanced by the entire car treated to a ceramic coating including the paint, glass, and wheels. In addition, a Kevlar undercoating has been applied. The interior is a true masterpiece of Italian elegance and flamboyance in the form of all-around leather. Clad in dual tone leather, the multifunction steering wheel is reminiscent of classic Ferrari styling. The heated seats bear the prancing horse logo stamped on the headrests. This car is reported to have sound system upgrades of around $14,000, including a custom console and aftermarket head unit with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and back-up camera.
The engine on the Ferrari 458 Italia coupe is a multi-award-winning mid-rear configuration V8. This extraordinary powerplant is reported to be the first V8 on a production car that can reach 9,000rpm. It’s a 4.5L unit that puts out 562hp and 398lb.ft of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a Getrag 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which enables performance figures such as a 0-60mph sprint of 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of 210mph. A trio of Capristo exhausts installed by the previous owner mean that this engine sings a soulful song as you wind it towards that redline.
