Ferrari 458 Italia Picks up Another Car of the Year Award

Ferrari 458 Italia Picks up Another Car of the Year Award

The award-winning Ferrari 458 Italia has taken another international prize, winning the coveted title of “Performance Car of the Year 2010” from Car magazine, one of the most respected automotive monthly magazines in the UK.

“The 458 Italia is an extraordinary Ferrari and a deserving winner of Car’s Performance Car of the Year award,” said Phil McNamara, Editor of Car magazine. “That one of the fastest, most thrilling and communicative supercars of all time is also one of the easiest to drive day in, day out is a remarkable achievement. Next year’s new McLaren supercar will have to be extraordinarily talented to dislodge the Italia.”

Car magazine’s “Performance Car of the Year” test took place over more than 2500 miles in Europe earlier this year, with competitors from eight different brands all competing to win this coveted award. After several gruelling days evaluating each car, the Car team decided the Ferrari 458 Italia was more than a match to whatever the magazine or the competition could throw at it.

Car magazine’s “Performance Car of the Year” award follows on from a raft of other awards for the 458 Italia including Fifth Gear’s “Fast Car of the Year”, BBC Top Gear Magazine’s “Supercar of the Year” and “Car of the Year”, GQ Magazine’s “Supercar of the Year”, MSN Cars “Car of the Year”, and Auto Express’s “Performance Car of the Year”.

The Ferrari 458 Italia was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009 to immediate critical acclaim and the car has been the subject of enthusiastic reviews, with its handling, roadholding, ride comfort and performance all being subject to the kind of superlatives rarely seen from the world’s leading journalists.
