Want to know how much that new Ferrari 458 Italia will set you back? If we were buying, we probably wouldn't want to know, but British pricing has just been announced in the first official indication of what buyers can expect to shell out.
The list price, including all taxes, for the 458 in the UK comes out to £169,545. That's a significant £40k increase over the F430 it replaces, but a few grand less than the top-of-the-line 430 Scuderia whose performance it more closely resembles. (The pricing also puts the 458 into perspective vis-a-vis its kid brother, the California convertible, which comes out to £143,325 on the 2010 price sheet.) Of course these are just starting points for eager buyers, with options like LED indicator lights on the steering wheel, Alcantara microsuede trim for the trunk, electric seats and a spare wheel all delving well into four figures. Nobody ever said buying a new Ferrari would be cheap.
