Ferrari 458 photos unveiled - Page 7

It's a sweet car, for sure

To me this (or the spyder) is THE Ferrari and the one I'll be looking for when the disposable cash is available (30 years). Don't get me wrong, there are enough beautiful Ferrari's for everyone to love, but this was my "era" when I fell in love with them.

I have always liked the 355 as well, but the hassle of owning one relative to the 360 and 430 cars make the 355 less appealing, almost to the point where I can't even consider one. The only thing I'm waiting for is for 430's to drop in price by about $50K

Wont take long now that the replacement is out. My dad got his F360 for about £40,000, cost about £119,000 new 6 years ago.

Yeah the 360's are quite reasonable, even where I live, where cars are on the very high side (The 458 is like $400K USD here, new). The 360 is a great car but they're getting on to where I see them here with 25,000 city km's on the clock (I even saw one with 75,000km's on the clock, wow), and everybody here into cars is licensed to be a car dealer and so they buy these cars, beat on them for a few months, and flip them without doing the belt jobs, etc. Third world countries are not friendly for having Italian sports cars, I suppose. In the US you can figure on having a car like a 360 and have it cost you like a dollar per mile in upkeep annually; I suppose since everything here is about double, it'd cost me about a dollar (or two) per kilometer, which is still fair for the experience and cachet. My girlfriend has had a 360 Spyder before and basically told me that Ferraris are like nothing else, but they are bound to make you poor. I'd still probably buy one, knowing.

More 458 Challenge pr0n:

A pretty detailed review of the car with lots of cool pics:

Video from a testing day in Valencia with some fantastic engine noises:



The GT2 also looks awesome. It's probably going to kick major butt in ALMS next year if the stewards don't hamstring it too much.

Saw one on the road two nights ago. The LEDs look cheap and garish. The lines are pretty nice, but I think the 360 Modena was still better looking.

Funny how the GT2 cars are significantly less powerful than the street cars and do not have a huge weight advantage, all due to regulation.

Saw another one today. I take back what I said back about the 360. I think the lines on the 458 are better. But those headlights still look cheap.

I like the 360 better, but I'm coming around on the 458; I still think it's harking back to the bad old days of the 3x8 years, though. I doubt we'll notice the headlights soon, as everything will have LEDs within a few years.

+1...... while it might be a nice car it looks like the type of car one would get to prove the size of his manhood.....or lack thereof!

I would much prefer to roll in a Bentley wearing Brioni suits and save the remaining money for a rainy day.

If you think anyone buys a 350 thousand dollar car so they can fly under the radar and only enjoy it for themselves, you're an idiot.
