We are pleased to offer this stunning 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia presented in a special two-tone Blu Pozzi and Argento Silver finish. Incorporating technologies derived from the company’s experience in Formula One, the 458 Italia signified a major development for Ferrari’s road-going sports cars with its advanced aerodynamics, 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and standard carbon-ceramic brakes. This 2011 example showcases premium factory details including a front suspension lifter, 20” forged wheels, and a Blu Scuro leather interior with diamond-pattern stitching. Having spent the majority of its life with the same private owner in Arizona from 2014-2019, this 458 is now being offered for auction in exceptional condition by its seller in Massachusetts with approximately 12k miles showing on the odometer.
This 458 is finished in the desirable nonmetallic shade of Blu Pozzi with a contrasting Argento Silver roof section. The paint is said to remain in pristine condition with clear protective film applied over the entire nose. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX. Styled by Pininfarina under the leadership of Ferrari’s design director, the 458’s exterior is optimized for aerodynamics with features including a large rear diffuser and deformable front winglets that flex at high speed to reduce drag. Factory optional details on this example include aluminum brake calipers, Scuderia fender shields, and 20” forged wheels. New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires were installed during 2020 and the optional front suspension lifter also allows the nose of the car to be raised for extra clearance.
Inside, this Ferrari sports a gorgeous Blu Scuro leather interior with deviated diamond pattern stitching on the seats and headliner. Other exclusive details include a leather rear shelf, a leather central tunnel, a colored upper dashboard, blue seatbelts, and a white rev counter dial. Convenience features include full electric seats, a parking camera, a navigation system, Bluetooth, full optional mirrors with Homelink, an iPod connection, cruise control, and AFS headlights. The headlight switch panel was previously replaced by a Ferrari dealer along with the passenger window switch and cruise control module. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly and the cabin is said to remain like-new.
This 458 Italia is equipped with a naturally aspirated type-F136 4.5 L V8 engine featuring a flat-plane crankshaft, variable intake timing, and direct fuel injection. 562 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox allowing for a 0-60 time of approximately 3 seconds and a top speed of over 200 MPH. Service records show routine maintenance including a comprehensive $6k service performed in March of 2020 which included a full brake system flush and new drive belts. An oil service and thorough inspection were recently carried out in preparation for sale and this Ferrari is said to be in exceptional mechanical order.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, a toolkit, tire inflator kit, some service records, an under-mount Ferrari license plate bracket, and a clean title.
