Ferrari 458

The Ferrari 458 will go down in the annals of the legendary Italian supercar maker’s history as the last car of its kind to be powered by a naturally aspirated V8.

In 'standard' 458 Italia trim, the Fezza's 4.5-litre hand-built engine makes an astonishing 419kW without a turbocharger or supercharger in sight, and the prodigious power is sent from the mid-mounted engine to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Priced from $525,417, and off to the moon at $635,000, the 458 positively drips carbon fibre and is a strict two-seater proposition.

It’s not the sticker price that makes the 458 such an expensive car, though – the options list is several pages long and features a lot of zeros. In fact, Ferrari says owners spend an average of $60,000 personalising their machines.
