Ferrari 458 Italia spied in yellow
The latest edition to Ferrari’s future lineup is the F-430 replacing 458 Italia has been spotted in the flesh again, and this time it’s yellow. This lucky photographer caught an excellent shot of the 458’s rear end. From the image we can see that there will be two large openings just inside of each taillight, most likely for cooling the high revving V8, two large ducts to channel air underneath the car and easily out the back. However the most interesting aspect of the photograph are the Italia’s trio of tailpipes. The question is, what is the middle tip for, could it be an exit for a turbocharger waste gate like on the F40 super car, or is it just a faux piece meant to throw off speculators who are fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the preproduction vehicle.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 Liter V8 engine equipped with the traditional Ferrari flat crankshaft that gives the mid-engine sports cars their signature top end bark. The unit produces 570 HP at a rather high 9000 RPM and the new Ferrari will be able to rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds and won’t stop until it hits a top speed of 202 MPH.
