Ferrari has finally priced its new 458 Italia. The striking new supercar will set you back £169,545.
While expensive, the 458 Italia slots between the California (which is priced at £143,325) and the 599 Fiorano (which goes for £207,075). Of course, if you decide to equip the car with options, you can easily price it into 612 Scaglietti (£217,230) territory. Tempting items include steering wheel-mounted LEDs (£2794), an alcantara trunk lining (£1445), electric seats (£2120), and a spare wheel (£1156).
More intriguing, though, is some of the options that reside on the 458’s ticky box list. If you get carried away the car will far surpass the £170K base price: steering wheel LEDs are £2794, an alcantara boot carpet is £1445, electric seats are £2120 and a spare wheel is £1156. Specifying the latter on a new Fiesta Zetec S is a slightly more acceptable £30.65, 97 per cent cheaper.
