Our friends at Elite Autos have revealed one of their latest offerings, a 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia in the sought-after black exterior color combination with black interior. This beauty comes with many upgraded options, including bluetooth, a Ferrari iPod, carbon fiber race seats, 20” sport forged black finished wheels, yellow brake calipers, and F1 dual clutch transmission.
The Ferrari 458 Italia first hit the car world at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was created as a replacement for the Ferrari F430 and sports a mid-rear mounted 4.5L V8 engine that comes from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design. The 458 reaches 62 mph in under 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Twin wishbone suspensions give the Italia amazing handling capability while it produces a downforce of 140 kg at 124 mph.
Motor Trend selected the Ferrari 458 Italia as its “2011 Best Driver’s Car.” With its beautiful Pininfarina styling for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, combined with features such as a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and ABS brakes, it’s easy to see how it earned the title!
