The horsepower factory.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is beautiful, stunning, and sleek. But there’s more to the 458 than its looks. Behind the driver sits a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that 562 horsepower, 398 lb-ft. of torque, and a thrilling race-like exhaust note.
The engine is hand built by Ferrari technicians in Maranello, Italy. There’s a real sense of pride and passion built into these Italian sports cars, which is why the automaker brought along a camera crew to film how a Ferrari engine is made.
The entire video is in Italian, so you may need to brush up on your language skills. It’s still interesting to see the intricate details that go into building and testing the 5.0-liter V-8. So, next time you mash the throttle, think of what went into building your engine.
