Ferrari 458 Italia за свою еще юную карьеру продолжает подтверждать 30 международных наград. Теперь еще две были добавлены к этой коллекции на конкурсе «International Engine of the Year Awards», где автомобиль был награжден «Лучшим высокопроизводительным двигателем» и «Лучшим двигателем с рабочим объемом более четырех литров».
The huge success of the 458 Italia with both the public and the trade press can be seen all over the world, from the USA to Europe and the Far East. The engine architecture with a completely new concept has been developed with the goal of reaching speeds of up to 9000 rpm.
Such speeds were previously unknown for street sports cars with such a cubic capacity. Other features include a 12.5: 1 compression ratio and 570bhp maximum power. which gives a specific power of 127 hp. / l. This value is also unmatched in naturally aspirated street sports cars. The excellent torque values are reflected in the wide usable range and the spontaneous behavior of the vehicle in all speed ranges with a torque of 540 Nm at 6000 rpm (specific torque of 120 Nm / l - another record), which is already available at 3250 rpm at 80 %.
The front part consists entirely of an aerodynamic "throat" on which there are two large side air intakes for cooling the engine fluids. The middle part has baffles and profiles designed to direct air to the radiators and the underbody. It flows through the bottom of the bumper and the column in the middle. Two wings attached to the center section help improve efficiency or reduce drag at high speed. The position of the cooler to cool the gear oil and clutch oil has been chosen to create a “main drain” effect. That is, the blowing of air into the wake of the vehicle, which increases the base pressure and therefore reduces drag. The chassis is modular and has a completely innovative shape. The use of new alloys together with aluminum, high-strength aluminum profiles from space technology, as well as especially innovative processes such as thermoforming, structural shaping under the influence of temperature, help to reduce weight and optimize vehicle performance.
