It looks very impressive technically but I'm afraid beautiful Ferraris are becoming a thing of the past. First we get the lumpy over-styled California and now this rather plain looking jellybean.
Where are the air intakes for the motor??
How does an 8 cylinder motor get 3 tailpipes??
Could we get back to putting the tailights in the rear bodywork instead of on it like they did in the 1930s.

The new 458 was named "Car of The Year" by Exotic Car Buyer Guide. That has to say something about the car!!!

#8 of 11 Flaming Ferraris force recall of 458 Italia
Sep 02, 2010 (5:20 pm)
Ferrari, a division of Italy’s Fiat group, is recalling all 1,248 cars of the 458 Italia model it had produced up to August after reports that five of the supercars caught fire because of glue in the wheel arch leaking on to the exhaust, a company spokesman said on Thursday.
The recall, possibly the biggest in the history of the luxury sports car maker, follows the posting of pictures and video on the internet of Ferrari 458s after bursting into flames across the world.
The five reported incidents from July onwards involved cars in California, Paris, Switzerland and China.
Ferrari, which is based in Maranello, said the five cars caught fire during “extreme uses in very high temperature”.
Some, but not all of the cars, were fitted wrongly with glue that could leak on to the exhaust, the company said. Those with glue will be fixed with metal fasteners.
The eight-cylinder 458 Italia, with a top speed of 325km/hour (202mph) was launched at the Frankfurt car show last year and costs €197,000 ($252,600) in Italy, including taxes.
