The successor to their popular 430 model, Ferrari first showcased the 458 Italia at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009, the same year that it rolled off the production line. And quite appropriately, being their first new supercar of the decade that followed, it had an all new, innovative approach.
The company’s experience in Formula 1 helped inform the technology and engineering that was incorporated into the 458 Italia by Magneti Marelli, chiefly as it was the first of their mid-engined models to have direct fuel injection, and automatic transmission from a dual-clutch, 7-speed GETRAG gearbox.
And with a completely brand new, super slick design, it all adds up to a Ferrari supercar that is quite unlike anything they’ve made - or indeed you’ll have driven - before. It posts some record breaking speed stats, accelerating from 0 - 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and 0 - 100 mph in 6.8 seconds, with an achievable top speed of 202 mph. Suffice to say, you’ll need to buckle in tight for a ride in the 458 Italia.

How to Book a Ferrari 458 Italia Driving Experience Day
We’re in regular contact with the suppliers and venue owners, so all the dates you see for all our experience packages here on TrackDays offer the most up to date information on availability. You can book directly onto any forthcoming date of your choice using our Calendar function.
Looking for something special to surprise a loved one or friend for their birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, anniversary or any other special occasion? Why not go for one of our open gift vouchers - they offer great flexibility for when and where you want to go, and we can send them to you via email or post them out with additional gift wrap options available at checkout.
Please remember when booking Ferrari driving experiences that the driver satisfies all specific requirements - each experience is different. If you are unsure about any of the details our customer service team are available 6 days a week and would be glad to assist you. Drivers need to also have their full driving license with them throughout the day if it is an adult experience. We offer junior driving experiences and this is usually specified in the name of the package - but not in every instance. If a driver fails to meet the requirements it is unlikely they will be able to drive the vehicle and would be offered a passenger ride instead.
Vouchers are typically valid for 10 months - but certain Ferrari experiences have a shorter or longer duration. Experience slots are very popular and can fill up fast so we advise booking as early as possible.
