In its promotional material, Ferrari touts the new car’s mission:

“The 458 Italia is designed for owners for whom the priority is uncompromising on-road performance with occasional track day capability, but who still demand a car that is usable in day-to-day driving like all Ferrari’s recent models.”

In his description, Yost writes in part:

“That mission will be accomplished with a new, direct-injection V-8 engine that produces 570 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 87 horsepower and 55 pound-feet over the Ferrari F430, which it will replace.

“That translates to a 0-60 mph time of less than 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 202 miles per hour. All of that power will be delivered though a paddle-shifted, seven-speed dual-clutch auto/manual transmission.”
