The last of the naturally aspirated mid-engined V8 Ferraris, the 458 Italia represents the end of an era. The car is defined by its high-revving naturally aspirated engine, a powerplant which rewards the enthusiastic driver with a surge of power and spectacular noise in the upper rev range. This traditional sports car character is coupled with a hugely competent chassis that is also surprisingly civilized, making the 458 both visceral and usable.
This particular example is a thoughtfully specced one-owner car sold new in Northern California, where it has spent its entire life. The original MSRP was $283,478. Options include yellow brake calipers, carbon fiber wheel caps, cavallini stitched on the headrests, sport exhaust, carbon fiber rear fascia trim, iPod connection, carbon fiber steering wheel with LEDs, shields, diamond stitched seats, navigation radio with bluetooth, parking camera, rear parking sensors, 20" forged dark painted wheels, and more.
