September of 2009 will be the time to go to Frankfurt for one of the greatest German Auto Shows. The manufacturers are getting ready and start showing the teasers of new projects to the impatient audience.
Ferrari has developed the successor of the popular F430 which will go to the show named 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia. The pictures of the beautiful red coupe are already wandering on the Internet with the first details about the car. The main purpose of the project is to show that high performance can go together with fuel efficiency in one auto.
The Italian manufacturer has developed an absolutely new mid-engine for 458 Italia. The numbers in the name of the coupe speak about the size of the motor: 4.5-liter V8 helps the car to be absolutely aggressive and at the same time greenish-modern on the road. The 2010 Italia is absolutely faster than any Ferrari vehicle running as fast as 203 mph. It is also claimed to start and brake quicker than any Italian auto. The coupe is equipped with F1 Trac stability control and E-Diff which allow making even sharpest turns.
The engine sits under glass as a precious stone in a jewelry shop. It produces 570 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. The 2010 Italia is controlled by dual-clutch automated manual transmission which provides quick shifting and seven ratios for speed acceleration.
High fuel-efficiency was achieved by direct fuel injection and low-friction engine components. However, the manufacturer has not named the actual numbers of fuel usage yet.
