Discussion in '458 Italia' started by Ultimate Car Guy, Jul 28, 2009.
I want 458 badly, doesnt matter if there are faster cars. You buy 458 for the driving experience.
I want this car !!!!!!!!!
I was considering a R8 but...
458 is simply perfect in this color with the yellow brake pads... :icondrool
I want to order one now but it's so freakin' expensive... I want it guys, I don't know what to do.
You mean with Yellow brake calipers
And I just can't help wondering why we the members on GCF aren't just going bananas over the FIA European GT3 Championship:t-hands::t-hands::t-hands:
Yeah.. this is my obsession too, but it's sooooo expensive here in Indonesia, almost 3x from the US price list!
I already have the money for ITalia... Now I just gotta keep them away from ITalia
It's so hard to resist...
If you really LOVE the 458 Italia then get it. I am not able to buy it, but even if I were, I wouldn't, I would wait. For now we only have the Ferrari and the McLaren, but there are also the Lotus Esprit, De Tomaso Pantera, Porsche 911 Turbo (991) and Lamborghini Cabrera coming. I would wait and see. I I really had to jump on such type of car, I take a Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 in a heart beat, it is also cheaper than the Ferrari.
That's some poor advice right there Levi. You'd rather wait for the Esprit? It won't have a patch on the 458. The De Tomaso Pantera??? You'd wait for that over the 458? If the Pantera isn't pie in the sky then what it will be is shite. Lambo Gallardo replacement? Maybe but you're either a Ferrari buyer or a Lambo buyer. As brilliant as Lambos are, I'd always have a Ferrari instead.
GT3 RS 4.0 is great car - possibly one of the greatest driver's cars ever - but it can't match the Ferrari's immaculate looks or hyper-sophistication. No, if one can afford a 458 then one can buy no better with the money. Get your order in now.
^Or u could always get the SLS roadster..unmatched blend of style and performance IMO.
Got nothing compare to 458 though It slower both around corners and in straightline and lack the driving involvement of a 458 and also it doenst look as good
458 is the best sportcars at the moment and I hear 458 is awesome as everyday car too.
Maybe then wait for the 458 Scuderia? This thing should be some serious killer.
that is right. i would like to see that ferrari burning or maybe crashing head on with a sls, je je. then you see what italian quality is all about!!!!!!!!.
In a straight line, they look evenly matched to me. Depending on the tires the cars are wearing, it could vary.
Ferrari 458 Spider further details - new renderings
458 Italia Spider will be unveiled later this year with production and deliveries slated to start early in 2012
More details on the upcoming Ferrari 458 Italia Spider have been reported by our colleagues over at TeamSpeed.com.
The most recent report confirms that the 458 Italia Spider will, indeed, be getting a folding hard-top roof and will, for the first time in over a decade, feature a two-seat Ferrari Spider without a transparent engine cover. Power remains the same as in the 458 Italia coupe.
A source told Teamspeed that Ferrari conducted a showing of the 458 Spider to select group at its headquarters in Maranello last week which included two exemplars - one done in Rosso/Tan and another in Nero/Tan.
According to the report, the official unveiling will happen this fall with production commencing in the new year. European deliveries on the continent will begin in the first quarter of 2012 while UK delivers start later on in the third quarter. Shipments of the car to the United States will come after that.
No pricing details available yet.
Our gratitude goes out to TeamSpeed and their member Wild-Speed for these renderings.
Since it is a hard top, so how much will the weight gain be?? Any ideas??
Ooooohh.. (Speechless!) :icondrool:icondrool:icondrool
I WANT ONE! I WANT ONE! I WANT ONE!
I am a little surprised by the news, I thought the California takes care of those who want a hardtop Ferrari convertible so the 458 Spider can be less compromised. It is a bit disappointing to see the clear engine cover will no longer be there, but I guess this cool feature was sacrificed so the styling and packaging issue can be resolved cleanly.
