Full scans available on German Car Forum thanks to Dede. Translation below obtained with the help of Google... I hope not too many mistakes. Ferrari 458 Italia values under brackets. VERSION FRANCAISE A SUIVRE !

 

Cabin
The interior gives the feeling of seating inside a single seater, but there are two seats. Truly excellent.
9.5 (9)

 

Dashboard
Well designed and finished, with some original solutions (vertical display); also has ample storage.
9 (9)

 

Habitability
It is necessary to lower the head in order to avoid hitting the door and to step over the body to sit into the car. Without this, the car is comfortable.
7 (7.5)

 

Trunk
In line with other similar cars: the front compartment is generous and usable, and there is some space behind the seats.
7.5 (7.5)

 

Visibility

In front, it is exceptional: the large windshield allows a perfect visibility. Critical, as for the rivals, is the ¾ rear.

7.5 (6.5)

 

Air conditioning
Only three nozzles, but adequate flow and air flow. Very comfortable for uncompromising quality.

9 (9)

 

Quality
Remarkable execution, both in the passenger compartment and for the body work. The materials are of uncompromising quality.
9 (8)

 

Hi-tech
The navigation is optional and the factory system only offers radio and
USB iPod. Several times the software went into "freeze."
6.5 (7)

 

Equipment
Complete standard equipment, expandable with higher performance components. A lot of carbon parts available at a high price.
7 (7.5)

 

Price
In line with rivals. It is the only car featuring a carbon shell at around 200 000 euros.

6.5 (6)

 

Engine
The first acceleration takes your breath away. The V8 is explosive at the bottom and can also stretch up to 8500.
10 (10)

 

Acceleration
We were unable to reach the 3”1 promised, but the rush of power is relentless. After 1km, it almost reaches 270kph.

Elasticity
The engine pulls with an unbeatable flexibility, which allows you to resume from low regimes very quickly.

Top speed
You cannot expect more. It goes with a good momentum uo to 310kph, but requires some patience after…
10

Consumption
Considering what has been used during the trip, the mileage at a constant rate is interesting. Very sensitive to changes in pace.
6.5 (6)

 

Transmission
Very quiet in operation, unlike other rivals. In Track mode, however, lacks a little malice.
9.5 (10)

 

Steering
Well calibrated for any situation: light and with good turning circle for the city, communicative and precise at speed.
9.5 (9.5)

 

Braking
Excellent distances. But the modulation is improvable, the pedal becomes spongy after work, at speed the tail meanders.

 8 (9.5)

 

Road handling

Very well balanced, with a little understeer which provides safety and confidence. High lateral grip.

10 (9)

 

Stability
With
ESP off, the MP4 is reasonably manageable, if in the hands of a skilled driver with the head on his shoulders.

9 (8.5)

 

Comfort
The level of absorption of the suspension is insane, it seems to be an E-Class. Acceptable noise level.
8.5 (7.5)

 

TOTAL RATING 179.5 (177)
