Ferrari’s latest entry supercar — F430 successor — is no slouch. The Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a direct-injected V8 that pumps out 568hp and 398 lb-ft of torque, boosting it from 0-60mph in just 3.4-seconds. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Much has been done to reduce internal friction within the new V8, in addition aerodynamic drag improvements. As a result, the Ferrari 458 Italia’s gas mileage improves to a combined 17.1 mpg (US) on the EU test cycle.
