2015 Ferrari 458 Italia: Final Year Of The 458. A 9000-RPM Revving V8 That Stands As Ferrari's Final Naturally Aspirated V8. Completed In An Arrestingly Distinctive And Exotic Blue Over Red Colorway. Presented In Beautiful Condition Throughout, Displays A Clean Carfax Report And Exhibits Only 9,XXX Miles From New. Boasted An Original MSRP Of $275,989 Which Includes $30K In Highly-Preferable Equipment.
Key Highlights: THIS color specification; a modern high-revving V8 (rated at 562-hp) that's Ferrari's last turbo-free V8, inarguably makes it a modern classic; the pre-2014 F1-esque exhaust note; an incredibly crisp and fast shifting, 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox; has soul, something that is not as apparent in its successors; low miles; carbon-ceramic brakes; relatively low U.S production numbers; devastatingly gorgeous in both the looks and sound departments.
The 2015 model year marked the end of production for the 458 Italia, which was subsequently replaced by the 488 GTB and up until recently, to which was replaced by the F8 Tributo. Sure, Maranello's newest iterations of the 458 offer twin-turbocharged vigor and are more capable, faster and dynamic than the version it was previously (the blatantly obvious point of model evolution, with Ferrari doing this exceedingly well), but what the latter cars mentioned lack greatly is the driving dynamics and theatrics provided by the naturally-aspirated V8's signature F1-wailing sound (that we all come to love about Ferrari's flat-plane crank V8s), that's gradually released and heightened as the revs race to the 9,000 RPM-redline -- which was a production first on a road sanctioned Ferrari (the 488 and F8 feature a lower redline)! With the move to forced induction and hybrid operation, as seen on current and future road-going V8 Ferrari's, never again will we see a 9K revving and naturally-aspirated V8 set-up from Ferrari, that's as visceral and raw!
If left Ferrari's famed Maranello assembly facility draped in Ferrari's staggering blue hue of Blu Tour De France Metallic; 20-inch Forged Dark Painted Wheels, showcased in front of red-colored calipers, underscored by black and yellow "FERRARI" and "brembo carbon ceramic" insignia; Scuderia fender shields; front/rear parking sensors and a parking camera. Its cabin features a roof lining in red; blue seatbelts and stitching throughout; red hides adorning the fully electric seats (further accentuated by blue stitching and piping and a headrest located and embroidered Cavallino Rampante/prancing horse completed in yellow) and on select interior surface areas (such as on the upper/lower dashboard and door trim areas, also featuring blue stitching) are just a few of the cabin's notable highlights.

Ferrari is famously known for relaying its renowned F1 expertise to its road-going motorcars and is extremely proficient in doing so, with two of the predominant F1-traits being the F1 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission and the instantly notable, very audible, and highly-famed exhaust note! However, F1's 2013 season marked the end of an amazing era for the utilization of high-revving and the outrageously-welcomed sounding V8s, with the 2014 season signaling the start of the utilization of force-induced V6 engines only; which resulted in a total departure in sound and caused massive dismay amongst the sport's spectators (with the absence of such a profound sound, one can only agree)!
This wildly special 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia signals the end of an era; the naturally-aspirated, Ferrari V8! It's extremely monumental! Do yourself a favor and call and/or text us now at (516) 888-9000/(516) 784-9619; we're authentic motorcar aficionados, let's chat!
