Ferrari 458 - Best in Show Frankfurt 2009

Ferrari 458 Italia – A true dream car!!

Expensive, but worth it just for the looks alone.

BEST IN SHOW: Ferrari 458 Italia

It is rare when there are more than a few in the race for this coveted title, but that was the case at Frankfurt, when no fewer than eight manufacturers had vehicles in the final. When the scrapping was over, Ferrari’s 458 Italia triumphed.

The 458 wears voluptuous, organic shapes tied together with technical and efficient lines. No matter when you see this car in the future–in five years or 50 years from now on a concours lawn–it will always be the one that debuted at Frankfurt in 2009.

Others considered: Maserati GranCabrio, Mercedes-Benz SLS, Aston Martin Rapide, Bentley Mulsanne, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Lamborghini Reventón Spyder, Audi R8 Spyder and the Pusz4849
