The Ferrari 458 Italia has been revealed to the public for the first time at Frankfurt. And as you'd expect, it’s a bit of a stunner.
It replaces the F430 supercar but completely trumps it for power – the new 458 has a brand spanking new 4.5-litre V8 engine with 562bhp on tap (at a bonkers 9000rpm) and 398lb ft of torque.

That makes it the first baby Ferrari to top 200mph, with 0-62mph taking 3.4sec. For now it only comes with the option of a twin-clutch seven speed automatic transmission, which sits alongside E-Diff and a trick new ABS system. It’s expected to be priced around £150,000, putting it head first into a battle with the McLaren MP4-12C and Mercedes SLS AMG.
