The new Ferrari 458 Italia has won The Daily Telegraph’s “Motoring” supplement Car of the Year title.
The new Ferrari 458 Italia won in the “Money No Object” category.
Paul Hudson, Head of Motoring at The Daily Telegraph, said: “The 458 Italia wins because of the pure driving pleasure it delivers to drivers of all abilities. It flatters your driving while involving you fully in the experience.
“Despite its towering performance there are many faster cars, but the 458’s astounding levels of tactility and refinement clinch it. It has almost telepathic steering, superbly linear major controls, looks (and sound) to die for. Hell, it’s even comfortable."
Other new Ferrari 458 Italia awards include Car magazine’s ‘Performance Car of the Year’, Fifth Gear’s ‘Fast Car of the Year’, BBC Top Gear Magazine’s ‘Supercar of the Year’ and ‘Car of the Year’, GQ Magazine’s ‘Supercar of the Year’, MSN Cars ‘Car of the Year’, and Auto Express’s ‘Performance Car of the Year’.
The new Ferrari 458 Italia was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009.
