Ferrari 458 Italia Driving Experience
The Ultimate in Ferrari driving, our 458 Italia is our flagship Supercar!
Gift includes high speed passenger ride
It’s been over fifteen years since a Supercar from the iconic Ferrari stable has made an impact as huge as the 458 Italia has. This fabulous machine’s sheer level of outrageous performance coupled with its jaw dropping lines have brought a level of accolade from the media not seen since the mid 1990’s. Unveiled for the first time at the Frankfurt motor show in 2009 it soon became apparent the 458 Italia was capable of incredible performance.
With its 4.5 litre V8 engine producing 560 BHP, it hits 60mph from standstill in just 3.3 seconds and tops out at just over 200mph! Dial in a 7 speed paddleshift (semi automatic) gearbox found in F1 cars and add the gorgeous sleek looks, there’s no doubt this Supercar packs a 6th Gear Driving Experience that few others can ever hope to match.
Interestingly in the UK the number of 458 Italia’s is only just into double figures making it extremely rare. This £175,000 Supercar is so sought after rare examples are changing hands at £50,000 above this figure.
The Ferrari 458 Italia Thrill was put together for true Ferrari ‘Tifosi’ (enthusiasts) by the 6th Gear Team since this driving this icon will make the ultimate Gift for someone very special indeed.
Beginning with in-car briefing by one of our expert Instructors, its soon time to strap oneself into the leather clad racing seats of this gorgeous new Supercar from Ferrari. Pull out of the pits, select the first of seven gears and accelerating down the track for the first time with the stunning scream of the V8 behind ones ears makes for an experience never ever forgotten. Experience the awesome race inspired handling, tremendous braking power and fabulous soundtrack for 6 miles of driving before pulling back into the pits to calm down!
After climbing out of the 458 its then time to jump into the passenger seat of our specially prepared performance saloon for a seat of the pants high speed passenger lap driven by an expert Race Instructor!

The Ferrari 458 was the replacement to the Ferrari F430. It was officially unveiled in 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although it was classed as the successor to the F430, the 458 had an new design entirely; incorporating technology developed from the companies experience in Formula 1. The interior of the 458 Italia was designed by a man called Bertrand Rapatel (a French automobile designer) who was the Director of Ferrari Interior Design. Consisting of speed, agility, power, elegance and comfort, it’s not hard to see why this is such a popular car! Boasting permanent rear wheel drive, 0-60mph in just 3.4 seconds and top speeds reaching over 202mph, giving someone the opportunity to drive a Ferrari 458 Italia is an incredible gift!
