Many argue that the Ferrari 458 Italia is the sexiest Ferrari ever built, and few dispute that the car is among the highest-performance road-going Ferraris to ever leave the Maranello factory. At the heart of the 458 Italia is its 4.5-liter V-8 engine, which puts out a healthy 562 horsepower and 398 ft-lb of torque. To ensure that you don’t need to drive the 458 like an F1 car, the engine makes 80 percent of its peak torque at just 3,250 RPM. That’s good enough to get the 458 Italia from 0 to 60 in just 3.3 seconds, on the way to a top speed of over 200 miles per hour.
Now you can indulge yourself in over 11 minutes of Ferrari 4.5-liter V-8 engine porn with the video below. It’s in Italian, but you can tell yourself that that just makes the video culturally enriching. The scenes are interspersed with a 1970’s, low-budget-porn-film backing track, just to make sure you get the most from the video. Have a look below, and then tell me who you want tightening up YOUR crankshaft bolts.
