The Daily Telegraph Nominates Ferrari 458 Italia as Car Of The Year

The Ferrari 458 Italia has won a further coveted award, taking the Car of the Year title from a strong field of supercars in The Daily Telegraph’s “Motoring”, one of the UK’s most respected automotive supplements. In declaring the 458 Italia the winner in the “Money No Object” category Paul Hudson, Head of Motoring at The Daily Telegraph, said, “The 458 Italia wins because of the pure driving pleasure it delivers – to drivers of all abilities. It flatters your driving while involving you fully in the experience. Despite its towering performance there are many faster cars, but the 458’s astounding levels of tactility and refinement clinch it. It has almost telepathic steering, superbly linear major controls, and looks (and sound) to die for. Hell, it’s even comfortable.”

The Daily Telegraph’s “Money No Object Car of the Year” award follows on from a raft of other awards for the 458 Italia including Car magazine’s “Performance Car of the Year”, 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. Following an extensive international media test drive programme in Maranello, the home of the fabled Prancing Horse, 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.
