Dreaming of getting your hands on Ferrari’s upcoming 458 Italia? You’d better know what you’re getting yourself into, and this is our first real indication. Stemming from a supposedly leaked price sheet, the new V8 supercar will start in Europe at €162,900, before any taxes are taken into account. At today’s exchange rates, that figures to about $240,000 – around halfway between the price of the outgoing F430 and the 430 Scuderia.
Of course, that’s not an official figure – Ferrari North America has yet to confirm pricing for the U.S. market – and the long list of options amply demonstrates that the $240k starting price is exactly that: a starting price. On to that you can add leather everything, special paint finishes, upgraded wheels and more – most if not all of which you can already check out in the online configurator we reported on recently.
