Overview

The 458 replaced the 430 and is better than that car in every measurable way. The styling is an evolution of the 430's looks--the newer car's got sharper corners, better aerodynamics and bigger standard wheels.
2016,
2016,Power comes from a 4.5L V8 engine mounted mid-ship, and makes an impressive 570 horsepower and 398 lb-feet of torque. It's only available with a 7-speed double-clutch transmission, connected to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. The suspension is of the active, self-leveling variety.
2016,
2016,In an effort to improve fuel economy, the 458 employs several fuel-saving technologies. A type of "multi-displacement" system that turns off some cylinders when they're not needed and an innovative alternator that only charges the battery when the car is decelerating or coasting helps reduce parasitic loss on the engine, is also used to improve fuel economy.
2016,
2016,The 458 gets big 20-inch alloy wheels and Z-rated tires as standard equipment. Up front, the Ferrari's headlamps are composed of a series of advanced LEDs, which are brighter, consume less energy and last longer than conventional bulbs. Inside, power windows and locks are standard as is dual-zone climate control. Safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control as well as tire pressure monitoring.
2016,
2016,Like many exotics, the Ferrari 458 is available in a dizzying array of colors, including five shades of blue, seven shades of gray and three reds. If none of them are to the customer's liking, custom paint is available. The standard seats are beige leather, but can be optioned with blue, charcoal, gray or any number of other hues.
2016,
2016,The customization options menu is extensive, and includes a special performance brakes, run-flat tires, carbon fiber trim as well as a premium JBL stereo with 11 speakers and iPod integration. Power seats are optional, as is navigation and cruise control. A parking camera is a $3,463 option and parking sensors cost $2,203.
2016,
2016,The 458 Spider is the convertible version of the 458, it provides all the thrills of its Italia sibling, but with a foldable top. Thanks to slick packaging and an elegant design, the 458's profile is essentially unchanged. The electric retractable hard top features two sections that each rotate rearward 180 degrees and stack neatly inside a compartment between the cabin and the mid-mount engine. The whole process takes just 14 seconds, and Ferrari says the Spider is the world's first mid-engined berlinetta with a retractable hard top.
