The maximum that an NA or supercharged car can legally produce is 5-10% over manufacturer quoted power, whereas for a turbocharged car it's between 10% and 20% depending on the application.

Using this calculator, a curb weight of 3615 lb WITH driver and a near full tank of gas, and 590 bhp, the F458 cannot legally trap more than 128mph in the quartermile. Any more than that, it's considered MODIFIED. And I believe it is accurate considering that Ferrari and Lamborghini both rarely underrate power figures, as opposed to McLaren and Porsche (which can be up to 10% for NA and 20% for turbo applications).

ALSO, the maximum (meaning fastest) quartermile time should be 11.5-0.2=11.3 excluding the rollout.

No F458 weighs 3300 lbs. Not every manufacturer claim is correct.

Use the Fox and Hale formulas and you'll see what I mean ;)

Even this source below estimates no higher than 131mph on a VHT dragstrip:

The F458 is doing 11.1 (minus the rollout) at 130mph in its best form, and that's only with a secret launch control equipped in Euro-spec Ferraris which typically are lighter than US ones.

3.45/9.8 = 352kph top speed, 3.15/9.5 = 332kph top speed. The latter is more likely for the 458 based on top speed, but 9.5 to 200kph is also impossible with just 570hp, let alone 570ch. But this ratio is also equal to 3.45/10.4. (11.2/10.4)^0.5 = 208kph/129mph in the 1/4-mile... on a dragstrip where only the first 1254ft of speed are recorded, 204kph/127mph (similar results to a 600-700hp muscle car)

The 458 is even slower than a Gallardo SL or a Murcielago SV (both of which do the same trap speed due to AWD) and only beats the LFA because of shorter gearing.

A 129-mph trap speed is not even 997 GT2 RS territory (that car will terrorize the 458 Italia). It's closer to an SLS AMG Black Series or a Viper T/A.

The Ferrari 458 Italia did not trap 134 mph in M/T's conducted test. Here's why. Let me start off with a quote from Wikipedia regarding the entry of a LaFerrari in their 1/4-mile article:

Motor Trend´s LaFerrari report published a 9.7 second 1/4 mile after the 9.9 second result was rewritten to account for weather. Motor Trend stated: "Fiorano's downhill front straight was the only place we were allowed to do acceleration runs, and we couldn't run backward for a two-way average. The data shows the fastest quarter-mile run declining by 18.2 feet from start to finish, or 1.4%. For reference, the National Hot Rod Association allows a 1.0 percent maximum grade over the course of a quarter mile.

Noting that this "MIRA" track was also used by Ferrari itself, with mention of wind being used as an "opportunity" by Motor Trend, I'm not obligated to take that 134mph trap speed seriously; especially if a Huracan or an Aventador traps 135mph.

The dual-clutch naturally-aspirated Ferrari also couldn't be equally as quick, let alone quicker from 120-140 mph than from 100-120 mph in a regular straight line.

0-60mph 3.0sec + 0.3 for rollout = 3.3; that means 100km/h in 3.42-3.46s, but let's use 3.45
0-100mph 6.4 + 0.3 = 6.7
0-120mph 8.9 + 0.3 = 9.2
0-140mph 12.2 + 0.3 = 12.5

100-120mph from 6.7 to 9.2 gives a ratio of almost 1.75, while 120-140mph from 9.2 to 12.5 gives a ratio of nearly 2.


Anywhere from 9.78 to 9.86s from 0-200km/h, but we'll use 9.8s.

3.45+9.8/(3.45+9.8)x10 = 10.846s from 0-380m (this is the Quattroruote/DragTimes/NHRA version of the 400m run)

3.45+9.8/(3.45+9.8)x10.375 = 11.124s from 0-400m (the true 400m); if you subtract for rollout, that 400m time becomes 10.824s.

Nonetheless, the quarter-mile time posted in M/T's datasheet is accurate for an American test. But it sure won't replicate that 134mph trap speed! Actually, the ratio should be much higher in a small-displacement, high-revving n/a car.

(134.0/120)^(1.73920/0.75)x9.2 = 11.9s (11.6s with rollout)

(132.0/120)^(1.73920/0.75)x9.2 = 11.5s (11.2s with rollout)

(130.6/120)^(1.73920/0.75)x9.2 = 11.2s (10.9s with rollout)

Even at the 1366ft line the car will be trapping 132.X mph at best. The 11.2sec 1/4-mile time is possible only with the secret launch control, but it'll void the car's warranty even worse than the Dodge Demon's transbrake will. The quarter-mile time and trap speed of 11.3s (even with rollout) and 130.6mph are the weather-corrected results. 0.4sec and 3.4mph slower than what were published in M/T's database. This means without rollout, the actual tested 1/4-mile time was as high as 11.6 seconds!!!

Hope this helps ;)

Motortrend tested the Ferrari 458 in England!

Quote>"Demonstrating a fit of pure-Italian logic, Ferrari dispatched us to a compact test track in England to give the 458 spurs. The Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) facility near Birmingham offered a rough cornering pad, a one-mile-long straightaway, and a few moments of dry pavement between wind and rain squalls. We used the opportunity to utmost advantage to record these chart-topping performance figures:

0-60mph 3.0sec
0-100mph 6.4
0-120mph 8.9
0-140mph 12.2
0-160mph 17.0
0-180mph 23.3
1/4-mile 10.9sec @ 134 mph
Peak g 0.96
30-70mph passing 4.2sec
70-0mph 143ft
Peak g 1.18
L 1.04g
R 1.08g
I 47mph
II 66
III 89
IV 112
V 141
VI 173
VII 202."

Some sweet little numbers in there!

The Ferrari F142 is perhaps the most profitable and most successful supercar platform in the world, underpinning the Prancing Horse's mid-level models such as the 458, 488, F8, and SF90. Ferrari is an obvious, well-known exotic brand which also happens to have cousins like Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and Fiat. Its hometown rivals are Lamborghini and to a lesser degree, Pagani. All are exotic brands (bar Alfa Romeo and Fiat). Italy is very well known for exotic cars.

I am aware that the earlier naturally aspirated V8 Ferraris (up to 360 Modena) weren't supercars, but that's not the case with the F430 and 458. The latter two proved a sales success and basically paved way for the bulletproof 488 and F8. The F430 escalated from being an entry-level Ferrari to a mid-level one later in production, thanks to the luxurious California roadster which was intended to rival the Audi R8 and BMW M6/Alpina B6 convertibles, as well as the flagship Mercedes-Benz roadsters (i.e. the '600' and 'AMG' versions of the SL-Class).

Since we are in 458 page, two local Instagram influencers died last night when they smashed 458 Italia into birch trees at somewhere around 200 kph (I am guesstimating the speed). And yes - it did catch fire like a true Ferrari 458. In fact it erupted into bright fireball immediately on impact. More like a plane crash...





It just shows once again what heroes influencers and YouTubers are. They are risking their lives for their videos and our entertainment. Also shows how smart and courageous they are, because it takes smarts and courage to go 200 kph in a 90 kph (or 70?) zone...

The 458 is the one car that is supposed to target the Gallardo, but is actually as fast as the Huracán.

benedekpuskas  2y ago

Don't ask why but I added the 1/8 mile time to the 1/4 mile time and I got a pretty realistic 1/2 mile time. Then I added the 1/4 mile time again and I got a really nice 1-mile time. I'm quite tired so maybe all of this is totally unequivocal but still pretty interesting. :D

Does any one have scans of this issue of AutoFoco magazine where they compare 458 and GTR at estoril.

The issue was of 11/1/2014 and Lap times I found from owners of issue were as follows
458 Italia 1:57.43
GTR R35 550ps 1:54.26

The unexpected surprise is that 599GTO being very quick! The 458 in this video seem to be in drafting/slipstreaming almost all the way, so 7:32.92 seems to be the more legitimate time.

7.32.92 is a full lap (20.8km not the regular test on a 20.6km) with a passenger. 7.28 is in a youtube video 458 and 599GTO

Hi Everyone, can someone confirm the Nürburgring Nordschleife times for the 458 Italia. Thanks.
