In anticipation of the Ferrari 458’s scheduled debut at both the Frankfurt Motor Show and the Galeria Ferrari in Maranello on September 15, the exotic Italian automaker has already prepared a short video to properly introduce the new 458 to the masses, however this is just a short teaser and we are awaiting for the full version to be released very soon.

Under the hood Ferrari has placed 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 still get 18 MPG. Weighing in at only 3042 pounds, the new Ferrari will rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds and won’t stop until it hits a top speed of 202 MPH.

Cool but brief little teaser. The 2011 plug-in Prius is supposed to be unveiled at Frankfurt, too, but I haven’t heard anybody talk about that yet. The stats should come as terrible news to Chevrolet’s Volt engineers, and I posted all of the info I could find on my page if anyone is interested.
