Ferrari 458 – Best Performance above 4-litre Engines five times in a row
For the fifth year running a Ferrari engine has triumphed in two categories of the prestigious International Engine of the Year Awards – Performance Engine of the Year and the Above 4-litre class. The winner on this occasion is the naturally-aspirated 4.5-litre V8 engine that equips the 458 Italia and 458 Spider and, in its most powerful guise, the 458 Speciale. The international judging panel includes journalists from 35 nations and all praised the Ferrari V8’s unassailable blend of sophisticated engineering, power, throttle response, precision, performance and efficiency along with its peerless soundtrack. And we add us as another judging panel. When this headline was going around the web, we just had the 458 Spider in for a videoreview. We used the occasion to prove those preceding adjectives and – yap, all in. Enjoy our first sneak preview of our full movie, we focused on acceleration and sound. For us, it is the sound of the century, when it comes to a naturally-aspirated V8 engine. Every additional single word is useless in a few seconds, if you follow our advise right away- put your speakers to max and press play. Now!
